Who is Architas?

Successful investing is all about choosing the funds to suit your goals, attitude to risk and personal circumstances.

Architas is made up of 2 expert investment companies which are part of the global AXA Group, and operate independently of Standard Life Self Investor. They're made up of specialists from across the financial industry, including experts dedicated to fund manager research, selection and monitoring.

This wealth of experience allows them to offer a selection of funds to suit a variety of investment needs. Each fund in our All-in-One and Favourite funds has been created or selected by Architas for investors across a range of experience levels.

Award winning fund management

In September 2016 Architas Multi-Manager Limited won 'Best Multi-Manager Provider' at the Moneyfacts Investment Life & Pensions awards for the third year in a row.

Whilst Architas strive for further achievements, there's no guarantee of winning similar awards in the future.

How does Architas work?

All the funds in the All-in-One funds and Favourite funds go through a careful selection process:

  • Each investment expert at Architas is assigned specific asset classes and geographical regions to research
  • The Architas team meets with fund managers from around the world each year
  • They only make a decision to recommend a fund once they feel they have a solid understanding of the people involved, how they add value and the role the fund could play within our range
  • They collate a list of the high-quality funds they've chosen, and present their findings to the rest of the team. The funds are reviewed and, if agreed, included in our All-in-One funds or Favourite funds
  • The selected funds are then regularly monitored to make sure they're on track and performing as expected

Please remember that the value of your investments can go down as well as up, and you could get back less than you invest.

A fund range to help get you started

We have a fund range of over 1,250 funds, so to help you get started we've got 2 ways to narrow down your options. Whether you're new to investing or a more experienced investor, we could have a starting point for you.
