The asset manager approached “about ten clients” last week to seek their opinions on launching a European equity income fund for Rice and a high-yield bond fund for Harvey.

Stressing the proposals are still in the research stage, a spokesperson says Cazenove would be keen to move the products along the development process if they receive enough interest from clients.

Rice, the head of pan-European equities at the asset manager, currently runs the £837.3m Cazenove European, the Dublin-domiciled Cazenove €120.2m (£102.8m) European Equity (ex UK) and the Cazenove European Equity Absolute Return funds.

Harvey is the manager of the £678.7m Cazenove Strategic Bond fund as well as the Dublin-domiciled £357.6m Cazenove Strategic Debt fund. He is also the company’s head of credit.

Earlier this month, Cazenove appointed Carter Holloran as a high-yield credit analyst on Harvey’s team. Holloran joined the firm from European Credit Management, where he focused on European industrial credit.
