In July 2020 Architas, part of the global AXA Group, announced the sale of its UK investment business to Liontrust Asset Management Plc. The UK investment business includes two regulated legal entities: Architas Multi-Manager Limited and Architas Advisory Services Limited.
The FCA has approved the regulatory change in control, and the sale has also been approved by Liontrust’s shareholders.
This means that effective from 1st November onwards the “Architas Multi-Manager Limited” entity will be re-named to “Liontrust Multi-Asset Limited”. The names of the Architas UK ICVCs and Funds will also be changing.
Attached to this article are the letters we sent to our direct Retail Investors for more information. A list of fund name changes associated with the sale is also included for reference.
