Benefits of the service

High quality, regular, active asset allocation using passive investments selected through a central investment process.

Pairing dynamic, top-down investing with low-cost index-tracking has proven itself over time. These portfolios are 100% passive, using index tracking collective vehicles.

We keep underlying investment management fees as low as possible for minimum impact on investment performance. Seeking the best total return while remaining within the stated level of risk.

Our investment approach draws on the output of Charles Stanley’s Investment Strategy Forum overlaying this with dynamic decisions from the managed portfolio investment team.
