The multi-manager funds are currently provided by a subsidiary of Aberdeen Asset Management and by the Russell Investment Group. Exposure to the multi-manager funds is currently provided through the Scottish Widows Balanced Portfolio OEIC Fund although investment may be made through other unit-linked funds, collective investment schemes, or directly to meet the stated fund aims.
