Quilter Investors has appointed Wells Fargo Asset Management and The Boston Company to run two segregated mandates for its managed portfolio service.
Wells Fargo will run the Quilter Investors Emerging Markets Equity Income fund, managed by Alison Shimada, while The Boston Company's John Bailer will run the Quilter Investors US Equity Income fund.
The Boston Company is a subsidiary of BNY Mellon Asset Management North America.
Both funds are now held by Quilter Investors portfolio manager Stuart Clark in the firm's WealthSelect Managed Portfolio Service.
Quilter Investors said the funds would complement the portfolio's existing emerging markets and North American offerings and would provide diversification.
The Emerging Market Equity Income strategy is focused on value driven stock selection and seeks out companies with strong business models, attractive growth prospects, sustainable cash-flow generation, strong financial profiles and above average dividend yields.
The US Equity Income mandate offers exposure to companies with sustainable yields and attractive dividend growth characteristics. The fund typically holds 40 to 60 stocks and targets a dividend yield of 1.5x that of the S&P 500 index.
Wells Fargo and The Boston Company have also been added to the list of the firm's Global Partners, which totals 17 asset managers. Other firms on the list include BlackRock, Fidelity and Woodford Investment Management.
Clark said: "We are delighted to be able to launch these new funds, providing additional diversification within our US equity and emerging markets holdings.
"John Bailer and his team have an exceptional record of identifying US companies delivering strong dividend performance, and this holding will form an important part of our US exposure increasing our holding to value stocks which have been left behind in relative performance terms.
"Similarly, in emerging markets, we have been able to realise some profits in growth strategies that have performed well and rotate some of our emerging markets exposure into the value-driven strategy led by Alison Shimada."
