At Novia we recognise that there is a strong and growing demand in the investment market for advisers to outsource the portfolio management process to specialist third party Discretionary Fund Managers.
This allows clients to benefit from expert portfolio management and investment research capabilities enabling advisers to focus on financial planning and understanding their client's needs and aspirations.
As a consequence we have developed a trading system and processes which allow the four parties: advisers, their clients, Discretionary Fund Managers and Novia to work together to provide a professional and effective wealth management service.
The choice of Discretionary Fund Manager and charges paid to them remains an agreement between the client and adviser. However Novia enables advisers and Discretionary Fund Managers to use the service in full to the benefit of clients. Novia enables Discretionary Fund Managers to
Further information on how to link with Discretionary Fund Managers can be found in the Key Features Document and in our Terms and Conditions.
Novia can work with any FCA authorised Discretionary Fund Manager that you may wish to appoint. However we have partnered with a number of Discretionary Fund Managers who you may wish to use through the service.
Below is a list of these Discretionary Fund Manager partners. Click on the drop down sections below to find out more information and further details on the services they can provide.
We offer what we regard as a traditional investment service whereby we invest assets, using simple portfolio structures, into high quality companies, commercial property and fixed income securities utilizing a disciplined process, a highly skilled team and the best available technology.
Albert E Sharp was established in 1911 as a stockbroker for local families in the Midlands. Having survived the First and Second World Wars, the business grew considerably. In 1946 Albert's only son, Kenneth H Sharp, who had served in the army, re-joined the firm. In the 1950s the company established a corporate finance and research department for analysing local firms wanting advice on fund-raising and other strategic decisions. By the late 1950s, when people were beginning to generate wealth and save money, Albert E Sharp began to be recognised throughout the country for professionalism and trust. In the 1960s, with clients trusting it to look after their investments without consultation, the organisation began to offer discretionary investment management. In the mid-1970s Simon Sharp, Kenneth's eldest son, became the senior partner. Under his leadership, the business continued to flourish until it was acquired in 1998.
In 2009 Giles Sharp, Albert's youngest grandson, established an investment management business as an independent company, using the family name to underline his commitment to the long-held tradition of providing first-class, professional, personal service. Giles firmly believes there is strong demand for a firm operating under the principles passed on to him by his grandfather and father. To ensure the firm remains true to its ideals and that it honours the trust and confidence built up since his grandfather's day, Giles, handpicked a team of leading investment managers to look after client portfolios. Each has extensive experience of institutional investment management, is professionally qualified to the highest standards and has a proven performance track record.
With this in mind we have partnered with Novia to offer our investment management expertise.

History has taught us that this aim is best achieved by adopting a multi asset strategy, as no one asset class performs well at all stages of the economic cycle and diversification is key to smooth out painful volatility. Apollo's fund management team are specialists in this type of investment and have the necessary experience to create the optimum portfolios to match a client's attitude to risk. In essence each asset class has its own characteristics such as average return, correlation, volatility, and specific periods within the investment cycle to which they are most suited. Apollo focus on blending these individual asset classes together into portfolios to enhance return and reduce risk, such that the 'whole is greater than the sum of the parts'. Although there are many subsets within asset classes, essentially we focus on these eight; equities, bonds, cash, property, commodities, currencies, alternatives and private equity.
Apollo Managed Investment Solutions via Novia
The Apollo Managed Investment Solutions have been developed to provide Advisers with a solution that focuses primarily on the clients' risk profile. The service consists of six, ready-made portfolios that have been deemed appropriate for clients with risk profiles of 2 through to 7 (based on the standard 1 to 10 scale). Details on the portfolios can be found on their respective fact sheets. Each of these portfolios are constructed from Apollo's own multi-asset funds and are continually monitored and rebalanced where necessary to ensure that its risk profile remains unchanged.
How are the Portfolios Constructed?
The portfolios are constructed using a blend of Apollo's four multi-asset funds which are managed by an investment team that has demonstrated its ability to deliver strong and consistent performance for investors over the long term. The funds focus on wealth preservation and downside protection, seeking to smooth returns and minimise the investor's exposure to risk and volatility.

This is produced for professional intermediaries only, and should not be relied upon by retail clients.
The value of investments, and any income derived from them, can fall as well as rise, and you may not get back what you originally invested.
Ashcourt Rowan Asset Management Ltd, co. no. 03691998 is a subsidiary of Ashcourt Rowan plc and authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
Our Model Portfolio service is bespoke to each individual advisory firm and is driven by the firm. Our whole approach, systems and processes are adviser centric and not Barmac centric.
Although we are by nature safety conscious investment managers, our approach can be as aggressive or as defensive as the advisory firm demands as our over-arching investment strategy is determined by the advisory firm's client risk profiler rather than by our in-house view on markets.
We do not provide our model portfolio service directly to private clients and unlike some other discretionary managers, we do not operate ourselves as an IFA and are therefore not in competition with the advisory firm.
We only offer our service via platforms and having managed model portfolios since 2002, we have extensive knowledge and hands-on experience of platform capabilities across a number of major providers, including Novia.
By outsourcing the investment decision making process to a third party, Professional Advisers can then focus on their clients' financial advice and planning. However, when advisory firms entrust their professional relationship to another company, it is crucial that the discretionary manager works in harmony with the advisory firm and their clients.
At Barmac, we ensure that the advisory firm remains in firmly in control of the client relationship, thus protecting the value that the advisory firm provides to their clients.

We are independently owned and are not influenced by a fund manager, bank or insurance company. Brewin Dolphin is also able to choose investments for its clients from the whole of the market.
Brewin Dolphin has over 130,000 clients and more than £25bn of assets under management including more than £8bn in collectives. This substantial client base has allowed Brewin Dolphin to invest and build its award winning research department .
What is the Managed Funds Service?
The Managed Funds Service (MFS) is designed to provide discretionary fund management to clients for whom a bespoke service may not be required or deemed cost effective. It is administered via the Novia wrap and is structured to preserve the client-adviser relationship. The service provides clients with access to a range of five risk rated portfolios created and managed by Brewin Dolphin's award-winning research team.
Who is MFS for?
MFS provides access to Brewin Dolphin's models for smaller portfolios. The service is also able to cater for those clients that would like to make an initial lump sum investment but also make regular payments into their portfolio. MFS is offered via a Novia to make investment management a realistic option for clients who may have less to invest or may be steadily accumulating wealth. This takes advantage of Novia ability to administer assets in a cost efficient manner.
MFS is not a unitised product and an investor in MFS will own a portfolio of funds rather than one single fund. This means that if one part of the portfolio needs changing this can be done without detriment to the rest of the portfolio. It also means that any potential liability to capital gains tax will accrue more steadily thanks the small and subtle changes made to the portfolio. Having a single managed fund would mean that any capital gain may accrue more rapidly, potentially creating a capital gains tax liability when the investor looks to dispose of their portfolio.
MFS is also available via Novia in a range of tax efficient wrappers (ISAs, offshore bonds, SIPPs).
How does MFS work?
Selecting a portfolio
Advisers can select from a range of five model portfolios, with their choice of model portfolio reflecting the amount of risk the client is prepared to accept. Risk profiling of the client may be conducted through the platform. The resulting output can assist the adviser in identifying the portfolio most suited to the client.
The investment decision process
Assets within MFS are managed to reflect Brewin Dolphin's current asset allocation and fund selection views on a continual basis. On a monthly basis our asset allocation team will review the asset allocation of each portfolio. Alongside this, the individual components of portfolios will be monitored by our research team to ensure that their inclusion is merited going forward.
This ongoing monitoring helps ensure that portfolios remain within their original risk parameters, and identifies opportunities to make changes to portfolios in a timely manner.
What does MFS provide?
A MFS portfolio therefore provides access to a portfolio selected from a range of investment funds. The funds are chosen by Brewin Dolphin's award-winning, well-resourced and objective research team, and will continue to be monitored on a daily basis.
The platform will provide transaction statements, regular reports and online access to valuations for each investor.
Finally, as wealth accumulates a more bespoke service is likely to be required. Your Business Development Manager will be able to take you through this and the seamless re-registration process to Brewin Dolphin to utilise this.
The following portfolios are currently available:
The most up to date performance data is available by contacting your local Business Development Manager.
You can access portfolio factsheets by clicking here

The annual charge is 0.3% + VAT. In addition to this, an investment administration charge is payable to Novia.
What are the minimum investment levels?
The minimum initial investment is £2,000. The minimum regular contribution is £100 per month
Is trail rebated back to Brewin Dolphin, the platform or the client?
All trail/commission received on funds is rebated directly back to the client and into their cash account within the service. The service will utilise institutional units where possible and advantageous.
Are there any transactional costs?
There are no transactional costs within the service.
Can the service be white labelled for the IFA?
Yes. However, all literature provided, including transactions statements and year end packs, will carry the livery of Novia.
Which providers can be used for SIPP and Offshore Bonds?
The service is available via all SIPP and Offshore bonds available through Novia.
Will information on performance be distributed?
Yes. This information will be sent out on a monthly basis. This will include the relevant performance, a breakdown of assets in the portfolio and a commentary on the decisions made when allocating assets.

EQ is wholly owned by our staff which means that we can focus on building the business for the long-term without having to compromise to meet short-term targets from external shareholders, as many of our competitors do.
The EQ Positive Impact Portfolios
The EQ Positive Impact Portfolios are a range of responsible and sustainable investment solutions suitable for retail investors. They are designed for clients who want to go beyond ethical or social 'avoidance strategies'.
The EQ investment team has spent several years researching investments from across the socially responsible, ethical, sustainable and impact investment markets and developed rigorous grading process. This provides us with a solid understanding of the different methods employed by the numerous managers active in this space. We attempt to identify where one can genuinely make a difference with investment capital, while not compromising on performance.
EQ's Investment Team is highly regarded for its expertise in the measurement of social and environmental impact. We demonstrate that responsible use of investment capital can help to tackle many of the environmental and social issues existing today.
As a result, our portfolios will give your clients the confidence to know they are investing in the fund managers who actively seek out social and environmental improvements over and above simply avoiding vices, thereby providing a more 'positive' or 'intentional' investment proposition.
The EQ Positive Impact Portfolios are not just about selecting investments that do good. They are also about selecting good investments. Alongside our social and environmental research processes, our investment management team apply all their knowledge to find investments which we believe have the potential to beat equivalent but less responsibly managed funds in terms of the financial returns they can deliver. We then build portfolios which we believe provide sustainable outperformance versus peers.

Using the quality investment choices available from the FE Invest Approved Funds List, the portfolios are driven by our ratings including FE Crown Fund, FE Alpha Manager, FE Group and FE AFI.
Designed to produce superior risk adjusted returns through an optimal combination of actively managed funds, each portfolio is regularly reviewed and has strict targets that it must meet in regards to both performance and risk.

What are the Frontier Gottex Select Portfolios?
The Frontier Gottex Select Portfolios are a range of five, risk-profiled model portfolios tailored to meet a range of client risk profiles. Each portfolio combines Frontier Gottex’s established multi-asset fund with selected funds from leading investment managers to provide clients with broad diversification across fund managers, investment strategies and asset classes.
We employ a passive multi-asset approach to investing, whereby a selection of low cost instruments are utilised to capture the returns of multiple asset classes, both traditional and alternative, in a single portfolio. These asset classes include: Global Equities, Liquid Private Equity, Emerging Market Equities, Global Bonds, Emerging Market Bonds, Global Real Estate, Commodities, Natural Resources, Hedge Funds, Managed Futures, and Cash.
By investing in a broad range of uncorrelated asset classes, the multi-asset approach provides clients with diversification benefits. In addition, the use of low cost index investing results in cost savings that can be passed on to clients in the form of added performance.
Distribution Technology (“DT”) have reviewed the Frontier Gottex Select Portfolios within its implementation of DT’s Dynamic Planner ® application. As a result, Frontier Gottex Select Portfolios 1 to 5 have been DT risk-profiled as a 3 to 7 respectively.
What are the investment objectives of the Frontier Gottex Select Portfolios?
The aim of the Frontier Gottex Select Portfolios is to provide investors with long term investment growth by investing across multiple managers and asset classes.
Each investment objective will be achieved through selecting investments that maximise risk adjusted returns within the specified volatility targets, at the lowest level of cost and will typically be index tracking.
What are the Frontier Gottex Select Portfolios invested in?
The portfolios utilise a selection of low cost instruments in order to capture the returns of each asset class. At a model portfolio level, these instruments will include index tracking or replicating funds from a selection of leading investment managers together with a core holding in the FP Frontier MAP Balanced Fund. Within the FP Frontier MAP Balanced Fund, clients will benefit from our use of institutional techniques to capture asset class returns to traditional and alternative asset classes at low cost.
Summary of investment benefits:
We provide our innovative and low-cost multi-asset investment services to a broad client base spanning small institutions, high net worth individuals and financial advisers both in the UK and internationally.
Our approach to multi-asset investing combines allocations to traditional asset classes with significant allocations to alternative assets. This is an approach inspired by the investment strategies of the US University Endowment funds who are recognised as long-standing leaders in managing widely diversified portfolios.
Frontier Gottex is a part of Gottex Fund Management, a leading independent provider of alternative, multi-asset investment solutions and advisory services.

Henderson Rowe has invested using Exchange Traded Funds "ETFs" since its foundation. We are, therefore, highly experienced at using ETFs to deliver multi asset, globally diverse returns to investors.
Why use Henderson Rowe?
Henderson Rowe has teamed up with Novia to make six risk scaled portfolios available to Independent Financial Advisers. We use only physically backed ETFs to produce global, multi-asset portfolios that can provide a well diversified core to any investment portfolio.
This will enable Independent Financial Advisers to provide a topical new service to your clients, retain control of your clients' assets and the costs charged and, finally, to manage your clients' expectations about returns more realistically. ETFs deliver index returns, with total transparency of holdings and wide diversification with no hidden costs. These ETF risk scaled portfolios are intended for use as the core for your clients' investable assets. However, they can be used for any proportion and size of investment portfolio.
The model portfolios on Novia are based on the ETF element of our actively managed asset allocation process for discretionary client portfolios. There are six risk scaled portfolios that offer global, multi-asset exposure, by using ETFs. Risk Scale 1 is a conservative, domestic portfolio and is the most risk averse. Risk Scale 6 is an aggressive, international portfolio which is the least risk averse.
Our Asset Allocation Process
Our internal research team make the strategic asset allocation decisions based on a genuine balance of equities and bonds for Balanced accounts and a geographic overlay derived from global GDP weightings. We are not relative managers or absolute managers. We aim to deliver real returns to clients by investing their assets aligned to the real world, not artificial capital market indices that can distort weightings. We tactically adjust our weightings based on our expectations of value, growth and risk.
This process is dynamic and discretionary, which means that although the asset allocation may be adjusted at any time, each model will remain aligned to the original risk profile.
For more information, please call Finlay Maclennan on 020 7907 2200 or email him on email@example.com.
Please visit our website at www.hendersonrowe.com
Our three risk-managed investment strategies are designed to produce a consistent level of return for the level of risk employed - managing RISK is at the centre of everything we do.
Our investment process is built upon our proprietary risk management system, Analysis, Risk and Trading system (ART), that stress tests portfolios thereby bringing an institutional approach to private clients – this is the backbone of the business.
This gives Financial Advisers reassurance that portfolios are constantly reviewed, monitored and rebalanced, ensuring alignment with their clients ATR.
Strategic asset allocation is set at outset and tactically adjusted as appropriate - flexibility to reduce/remove asset classes in extreme market conditions.
We have a diversified, multi-fund and multi-asset approach to investing, as we believe this provides better capital protection and risk-adjusted long-term returns over more traditional mixes of long-only equities and bonds that you might see elsewhere.
Inventive use of alternative investment strategies to provide diversified sources of return and reduced volatility via the use of absolute return funds.
The above approach has led to consistent relative performance across all solutions, providing consistency and reliability of client outcomes.
So in summary the three key points are:

Ethical investment is rarely a core activity for advisers, but climate change and global concerns have led to a significant increase in demand for ethical investments. The level of extra research required in what is still a niche area, makes the outsourcing of ethical investment management a compelling option. King & Shaxson Ethical Investing has developed a comprehensive range of ethical portfolios to satisfy this need.
The five portfolios cater for a range of investors from those looking for stability in capital values through to those who wish to accept a higher level of risk. The Income portfolio generates an attractive level of income whilst also maintaining capital.
King & Shaxson's portfolios are designed to accommodate not only investors looking for a complete ethical approach but also those that wish to add an ethical component to their conventional portfolios. The portfolios are well diversified but have a thematic tilt, providing exposure to areas such as clean technology and water.
King & Shaxson Ethical Investing is part of King & Shaxson Capital Limited, a City institution dating back to 1866. The company has been active in ethical asset management since 2002, and has a dedicated team who are not only expert in ethical investing but also share the ethical values held by its investors. The core investment principles of asset allocation and global investing, along with transparent client reporting, have remained the cornerstone of King & Shaxson's ethical asset management since its inception.
In addition to ethical asset management King & Shaxson also has a strong presence in the cash management and the fixed interest markets, with clients including well-known building societies and local authorities. King & Shaxson also run conventional equity mandates in the US, Europe and the Far East.
King & Shaxson Capital Limited (Co. No. 2863591) is registered in England and Wales and is part of the PhillipCapital Group. It is a member of the London Stock Exchange and authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. King & Shaxson's registered office is 6th Floor, Candlewick House, 120 Cannon Street, London, EC4N 6AS.

As at 31 January 2014
Our Approach to Investment
All of our investment solutions incorporate our active approach to asset allocation. In addition we will use a wide range of investment vehicles encompassing active and passive funds, investment trusts, exchange traded funds and other specialist products. The choice of investment vehicles we use will depend on the solution we are managing and it's investment objectives.
Our ultimate objective is ensuring we fulfil clients' investment expectations for an agreed level of risk.
Strategic Asset Allocation
Combining asset classes with different risk and return characteristics enables us to create robust and efficient portfolios able to achieve the highest returns for a given level of risk over the longer term. Our strategic asset allocation is dynamic. It is reviewed quarterly and is designed to adjust to reflect the changing behaviour of different asset classes over time.
Tactical Asset Allocation
The strategic asset allocation of our clients' portfolios provides their long term direction. Our tactical asset allocation overlay reflects the team's current thinking on asset classes and markets. It enables us to take controlled positions in order to enhance returns or reduce losses in the shorter term.
As a proponent of multi manager investing we believe it is important to include a broad range of managers and investment vehicles. Our robust quantitative and qualitative process covers both active and passive funds as well as investment trusts, exchange traded funds and other specialist funds such as structured products. Whilst we embrace a wide range of investment vehicles, we understand that it is critical to use the right ones to meet our clients' specific requirements.
For the Dynamic Beta Portfolios we focus on using low cost strategies such as Index funds and ETF's combined with active managers who allow us to access certain asset classes.
Experience tells us that:

About Morningstar Managed Portfolios
Active Portfolios - use long term strategic asset allocation for diversification. They span equities, fixed-income and alternative investments, providing exposure to a broad range of asset classes that can be weighted according to our expectations for risks and returns.
Income Portfolios - are intended to provide a stable income in the context of attractive risk-adjusted returns. By focusing on income stability (not just the current yield), our service can provide realistic and risk-aligned income portfolios.
Passive Portfolios - are the purest reflection of our asset-allocation strategy. Because of their straightforward composition, passive investments do not face the same possibility of investment style drift as vehicles under active management.
Multi-Asset Real Return Portfolios - use value-driven research to locate high quality undervalued investments. We first seek to identify the sustainable long-term intrinsic value of each asset, then compare this to the current market valuation to find investment opportunities that possess the most favorable balance of risk and return.
Our portfolios are supported by access to Morningstar's risk-tolerance questionnaire, regular detailed reports and a dedicated adviser support team.
Why work with Morningstar?
Clear Investment Principles
The investment team takes a long-term and valuation-driven fundamental approach to investing. To help manage risk and deliver better returns, the team builds truly diversified portfolios that combine investments with different underlying drivers. Our core investment principles from the foundation of the investment process and guide the team's investment thinking, behaviours and decision-making.
In-Depth Valuation Analysis
Our valuation-driven portfolio construction focuses on one central idea: We find fair value in fundamentally strong but underpriced investments. From idea generation to holistically building portfolios for the long term, valuation is the key factor guiding the way we construct portfolios and helping us manage risk.
The core of our philosophy is the belief that asset class returns are intrinsically linked to the cash flows they supply to investors. We analyse capital markets with a valuation lens to find ways we can get more than we'll pay for and gauge market sentiment to help ensure we're taking a contrarian look at the markets.
In-depth fundamental asset class reviews are integral to developing our conviction in different investment opportunities. This judgement-driven approach leads to our best thinking about capital markets research and asset classes.
Independent Manager Research Experts
Morningstar Investment Management Europe is able to leverage the expertise of the Morningstar analyst team, which is one of the largest and most experienced fund research teams in the market with more than 100 investment professionals globally. Our analysts are based around the world because they believe the best assessments come from people on the ground. They use independent data from Morningstar, Inc. and regular face-to-face meetings with fund managers, to identify and rate what they believe to be the highest-quality funds in the market place, examining through the five pillars that they consider key to understanding funds: People, Parent, Process, Performance and Price.

*Indicative conventional risk rating spectrum as used by IFAs, platforms and other industry professionals
Myddleton Croft looks to manage clients by mandate and risk tolerance. The above allocations are a 'base case', e.g. valid when assets are fairly valued. However, given that valuation and risk are not static, investments may become under / overvalued or very volatile. We believe the balance between equity and non-equity should reflect this and be flexible enough to accommodate prevailing circumstances. For example, if equities become overvalued we will reduce equity exposure below the base case. The degree of flexibility is illustrated in the table above through maximum and minimum weightings for both equity and non-equity investments. For clients with risk appetites outside these ratings, MCIM can construct a bespoke portfolio on demand.

We offer a distinctive Centralised Investment Proposition (CIP), which has been set up by an IFA, for IFAs. We also provide other services alongside investment to our partner IFAs. Our offices are in Northampton and London.
Our Investment strategy
We developed Outcome Based Investing (OBI) over ten years ago. OBI focuses on delivering a client's strategised annual return (the Outcome, as identified by the IFA in the financial planning stage) combined with a clear understanding of that individual client's tolerance for loss (both financially and emotionally). We manage each client's assets, using their specific values of these two primary factors, which is the most suitable model portfolio at that point in time to achieve their goals. Beating the agreed benchmarks and indices are important, but are secondary to exceeding each client's Outcome while not exceeding their risk tolerance.
Long term investment success come from achieving strong performance while managing the risk taken to achieve it. Based on our modern concept of Outcome Based Investing (OBI), our track record demonstrates that it is possible to deliver strong investment returns with lower volatility. We have achieved this by constructing investment portfolios, selected from all asset classes, and then dynamically adjusting this mix through the economic cycle. This includes taking strong defensive action to protect client capital if we identify market event risks.
Why use our model portfolios?
The OCM Asset Management model portfolios are available through the Novia Platform. Each model is designed to achieve its specified outcome while not exceeding its specified risk. It therefore has a different blend of assets drawn from the whole of the market that our analysis says will best achieve these twin goals. This includes our assessment of the impact of all costs on the returns the client will experience. We then cyclically adjust the portfolios as we move through an economic cycle, since the best blend of assets to achieve these goals will vary with which economic phase that we are in.
Each Client has individual needs so they are not fixed into one portfolio. Rather we move them between model portfolios given their outcome and risk goals and the market opportunity and volatility that we see. We therefore treat each client individually and manage their portfolios in line with their requirements, truly connecting the financial planning with an investment mechanism to deliver it.
The benefits to using OCM Asset Management include:
The annual cost of our Model Portfolio Services on Novia is only 0.35% +VAT. The cost of the Bespoke Portfolio Service varies with the mandate, so please contact us to discuss further.

Our aim is simple: to provide independent and professional portfolio management at highly competitive rates.
Price Bailey is a leading firm of business advisers and accountants, who have been providing tax and financial advice for more than 70 years. We have offices in London, Guernsey and throughout East Anglia.
We have been successfully investing and managing client money for more than 14 years - and have funds of more than £230 million under management (as at 01.11.12).
It's always nice to get told that you've doing something well - which is why we were so proud to win the Leading Adviser Business Award at the 2012 Aberdeen UK Platform Awards. We were recognised for the quality of our wealth management service and the judges said we "employ technology superbly to offer a top class competitively-priced proposition for the client".
Price Bailey Portfolio Management
Our service is suitable for investors looking to preserve and grow their wealth in a careful and steady way.
We recognise that no two client situations are the same - so we offer four risk-rated portfolios that are designed to satisfy a wide range of investment appetites. Each portfolio is carefully constructed to spread risk - by investing in various asset classes including equities, bonds, commodities and property.
We have a preference for Index-Tracking (passive) investment products - collective investments and Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). We believe they are the best way to access most asset classes: they reduce investment management costs, remove individual stock risk and avoid underperforming active investment managers. We prefer full physical replication because of the small tracking error, transparency and absence of counterparty risk.
Our portfolios provide a blend of index-tracking products from the leading providers - plus some funds which are not usually available to retail investors. In this way we can deliver a full range of fund manager expertise
What makes us different?
Our (0.35% + VAT) annual management charge is lower than typical investment manager/unit trust management fees. The average TER of our portfolios (including our annual management charge and underlying fund charges but excluding platform and adviser costs) is approximately 0.80%.
We understand what advisers want/need and are happy to share our knowledge and experience. We do not intrude on the adviser-client relationship.
We have produced a suite of material which provides everything we think you and your clients will want to know about Price Bailey Portfolio Management:

What we do

We are not experts in everything and work alongside a client's advisers to meet their overall financial objectives.
Quartet on the Novia Platform
Advisers are, more and more, looking to Wraps and Platforms to streamline the management of clients' assets. They also recognize the delegation of the management of clients' wealth is a tough decision. We hope to help, by making Quartet's bespoke portfolio management service available through the Novia Platform.
Key differentiating points
Client focused - Our clients are the focal point of the business and we spend a great deal of time understanding their goals and maintaining dialogue with them.
Bespoke multi-asset portfolios - Each client's circumstances are unique, sowe do not believe in shoehorning clients into predetermined investment solutions. All portfolios are tailored to achieve the client's objectives.
Asset allocation - We believe, and studies have shown, that asset allocation is by far the biggest driver behind investment performance. We do not believe in "buy & hold" strategies and instead focus on actively managing the tactical asset allocation within clients` portfolios. This is where we believe we add significant value.
Investments - Very few fund managers consistently beat their respective index and they also tend to have high fees and costs. We therefore use passive investment vehicles for core portfolio holdings. Tactical, actively managed funds are included to add alpha.
Team - We are very much research led and, within our staff of 13, we have an in-house team of 2 analysts and 2 economists.
Alignment of interests - Partners and their families are amongst the firm's largest clients and our portfolios are managed along the same lines as external clients. We also pay the same fees!
Whether a client is an individual, family, company or trustee we will tailor our investment offering to suit their requirements.

We build long-term relationships with advisers and clients, established on a foundation of exemplary personal service and professional expertise. Our regional teams ensure a local presence throughout our 13 offices across the UK, Jersey and Ireland.

We are majority owned by the partners all of whom have money managed within the firm.
We wanted to create a business that provides an independent, innovative and professional service meeting the clients' real needs without pressure from sales targets, bonus expectations and fulfilling shareholder demands that are common at larger firms.
RMG is different to traditional asset managers and private banks because we believe in forward looking asset allocation using macro economic and market analysis rather than a backward facing 'buy and hold' approach.
Underpinning this process is RMG Wealth Management's proprietary, quantitative analysis and a unique emphasis on investor sentiment in the belief that it is either fear or greed that drives return.
We target lower volatility using active management and a proprietary risk management system that cuts losing positions and retains and develops winning fundamental investments.
It is a multi-asset approach, using low cost and highly liquid investments meaning we can be nimble enough to change direction quickly should the need arise.
We are conviction investors, making choices based on the financial and economic environment we are in. We make investments with one eye on the opportunity and the other on preserving wealth.
Fees and Process
RMG concentrate on reducing overall fees to the client as much as possible by ensuring the most cost effective securities are chosen and by being a lean and focused investment manager, we have no sales force or large marketing presence.
We intend to be as fee flexible as possible to suit the advisors and their clients.
We will manage a general model portfolio and will manage specific portfolios in consultation with advisor firms.

OUR INVESTMENT APPROACH
As risk based, multi-asset investment managers we believe:
Investing should be unconstrained:
The best talent is not all in one company:
Controlling risk is at the heart of generating consistent returns
Saltus runs three distinct real return investment strategies which apply 'risk budgets' to portfolio management to dovetail with the risk profiling tool you use. This ensures that we always take the correct amount of risk for your clients.
SALTUS SOLUTION VIA NOVIA
Our approach to Discretionary Fund Management On-Wrap differs from the normal approach of model portfolios. Instead of providing the usual 'buy-list' of funds, we have taken our full discretionary portfolios and broken them down into a handful of Saltus "building blocks" (e.g. Saltus managed OEICs and Saltus managed Investment Trusts) which are then custodied on the Novia wrap. The advantages to this approach are:
Saltus then uses these building blocks to construct and manage the portfolios for your clients. Whilst the allocation between the "building blocks" will change from time to time, most of the dynamic portfolio management is done by Saltus within these "building blocks".
HOW DO SALTUS WORK WITH ADVISORS ON THE NOVIA PLATFORM
Saltus takes time to understand your business and work with you to find the investment solutions that best fits your practice.
Saltus charges are very competitive and fully transparent.

With over 30 years of experience in building multi-asset portfolios for private clients and charity investors, the Sarasin Thematic Model Portfolios allow advisers to leverage that experience to meet the needs of their own client base.
We recognise that many advisers are looking for ways to deliver best-in-class core asset allocation solutions for their clients. We have partnered with Novia to offer our investment management expertise offering our five Thematic Model Portfolios, which differ in their equity weighting and target-return profile.
Designed to provide a range of outcomes for your clients
Our portfolios have been built around a single core investor proposition: to preserve the real value of their assets over time. The additional return required above inflation is dependent on the level of risk each investor is prepared to take.
Each portfolio in this range has a strategic framework that has been developed after detailed research to meet an inflation adjusted return target. Our portfolio managers then aim to provide additional returns above this level by drawing on the most compelling ideas from their extensive fund research and using economic analysis to identify key trends to drive active asset allocation.
Key benefits of the Sarasin Thematic Model Portfolios:
• A choice of five professionally-managed and diversified core asset allocation portfolios that each match a different client risk profile and target return objective
• They are forward-looking, investing in companies well placed to benefit from compelling global trends
• They provide flexibility, allowing the managers to use third party or in-house funds and ETFs to take advantage of tactical opportunities
Sarasin & Partners is known both as a market leader in thematic investment and for long-term income and dividend management across multi-asset and equity mandates.

7IM was launched in 2002 and now manages over £5 billion in client assets (April 2013). We don't believe in "star managers", instead preferring the structured, disciplined and institutional approach from a team of very well qualified and experienced investment professionals.
Why use passive investments?
We are also believers in the power of passive investments; they tend to be much cheaper than actively managed funds and remove the need for that star manager again. When you use a passive investment you tend to track an index instead of paying an active manager to pick particular holdings. In challenging economic times such as these, when costs can make the difference between your portfolio returning a profit or a loss, we think it is vital to keep those costs as low as we can.
Within the asset allocation ranges set by the Novia risk profiles, our Investment Management team choose the investments for each of the portfolios with the intention of obtaining steady returns at the most appropriate level of risk.
The 7IM Model Portfolios are a risk rated range of model portfolios which use a simplified version of the 7IM asset allocation process used for the CF 7IM Asset Allocated Passive (AAP) Funds. This process consists of a strategic (backward looking) analysis, combined with a tactical (forward looking) view, and with the resultant asset allocation is fulfilled with low cost passive instruments, with due diligence done by 7IM.
The models are:
For further information specific to our Model Portfolios on the Novia platform, please contact Nick Heath on 020 7760 8781.
These are the charges for the 7IM Model Portfolios:
0.25% (+VAT) per annum.
The ongoing charges figure of the underlying passive instruments is around 0.2% depending on risk profile and tax wrapper.
Any fees or charges that you make to the client are in addition to the above.
Any fees or charges payable to Novia are in addition to the above.
We believe that the 0.25% charge represents exceptional value for money in a low growth environment where you are probably under pressure from your clients to find them an investment solution that has discipline, structure and consistency behind it.
A real portfolio, not just a fund or tracker
Our portfolios are a blend of passive investment holdings, so you actually get a broad range of external fund manager's expertise.
Why do we do this? Spreading risk and reducing volatility (taking out the wild ups and downs of the stock market ride) are what we advocate. We might be boring but our performance is steady - and in line with what we promise!
Our approach has earned us several awards, including a 5 star rating by Defaqto in 2013 for our Discretionary Fund Management Service. In February 2013 we won the Best Ourtsourced Investment Solution for Advisers at the 2013 Professional Adviser Awards and we were delighted to win the prestigious Moneyfacts' Best Multi Manager Award 2012. In 2011, we won Best Investment Servicce by Moneyfacts and we picked up a Star award in the Investment Providers and Packagers' category, voted for by readers of Financial Adviser. We hope to be able to demonstrate to you why financial advisers who use us keep coming back.

Introducing Tavistock Wealth
Our centralised investment approach provides individual investors with the benefit of collective buying power to ensure that the charges they incur for model portfolio management, platform fees and dealing are amongst the lowest in the industry.
The CIP offers a range of risk progressive model portfolios (PROFILES) designed to meet the long term needs of investors. Each PROFILE provides investors with multi-asset, global coverage. In the majority of cases a PROFILE is comprised of 50% actively managed strategies and 50% passive index trackers.
We collaborate with a selective panel of third party investments managers to ensure there is both competition and choice between the options that are suitable for each individual investor. In every instance a PROFILE provides clients with whole of market managers delivering specialist investment strategies.
The overall investment objective of the TW PROFILES is to seek to deliver long term capital growth by investing in a range of global financial markets.
Managed in-house by Tavistock Wealth, each of our TW PROFILES comprises a 50% allocation to a basket of actively managed funds and 50% allocation to passive instruments via the ACUMEN PORTFOLIOS. Through a TW PROFILE clients gain exposure to portfolios which are highly diversified by both asset class and geographical region.
The overall investment objective of the PARTNER PROFILES is to seek to deliver long term capital growth by investing in a range of global financial markets.
Managed in collaboration with our 3rd Party Panel, each of our PARTNER PROFILES comprises a 50% allocation to a basket of actively managed funds and 50% allocation to passive instruments via the ACUMEN PORTFOLIOS.

ACUMEN ONLY PROFILES

We provide discretionary investment management for individuals, charities and trustees through our model portfolio service, personal investment portfolio service and Optima fund range.
In addition, Thesis Unit Trust Management (TUTMAN) provides the construction and compliance oversight of collective investment schemes for wealthy families, IFA firms and other affinity groups. We can act as ACD within such schemes.
Thesis Model Portfolios provide access to seven risk rated portfolios invested in collectives.
The active management of the models is reflected in asset allocation and fund selection. The asset allocation within these models benefits from the full investment process and diligence used within our fully bespoke service but at a cost and entry level that is suitable to a wide range of clients.
AA is forward looking not just based on historic performance of the asset classes. We call it having some common sense. Asset allocation is therefore not driven by benchmarks.
Selection in Models adds considerable value. This provides access to the best funds at the best time without reference to fashion or fad. Our full time models team regularly meets fund managers as part of the in depth research process.
Working in partnership to help deliver your client proposition is critical and mapping to your risk profiling is a key part of that. We are happy to discuss different risk mapping methods and tools to ensure a good fit with your business.
Advisers using Thesis models can have direct contact with the investment management team. Subject to availability we will also attend client and/or adviser in-house meetings where this can add value.
Thesis has a wide range of experience in business development. We like to assist advisers to exploit business development opportunities and we specialise in developing professional connections to the benefit of all parties.
Thesis quality and service have been recognised by Defaqto, the independent analysis firm. Thesis was awarded the top 5 star award for Bespoke (Personal Investment Portfolio) and Model Portfolio Services. One of our fund managers appeared in Citywire Wealth Manager top 100 in 2013. For two years in a row Thesis has won the Citywire Investment Performance award - Aggressive Portfolios. This year Thesis won a PAM award (investment performance: growth portfolios) - mandate 5 of 7, based on Asset Risk Consultants (ARC) data. ARC have also awarded Thesis the 3D award for demonstrating a superior standard of transparency.

Thorrtons Investments provides discretionary investment management services to financial advisers, private clients, charities and trusts. This includes our Model Portfolio Service, Bespoke Discretionary Management and our AIM Portfolio Service.
Model Portfolio Service
Our partnership with Novia offers financial advisers a choice of five discretionary managed risk-targeted investment models:
Thorntons Cautious Model Portfolio
Thorntons Steady Model Portfolio
Thorntons Moderate Model Portfolio
Thorntons Progressive Model Portfolio
Thorntons Adventurous Model Portfolio
Our model portfolios are designed to achieve their investment objectives within a specific risk profile. We seek to provide a positive investment return over the medium to longer term, while generating an honest income and controlling volatility.
Volatility Management and Control
Volatility management and control are fundamental to the service we provide, given the close alignment between the models and your clients' risk profile and capacity for loss.
Each model is constructed with a three to five year investment horizon and targets a specific risk budget.
We invest in open ended funds to allow efficient rebalancing to model positions and will use both tracker and active funds, utilising their respective advantages.
There is a spread across a range of asset classes and funds to appropriately diversify risk, but not to the extent that the potential for performance is diluted away.
We do not manufacture our own in-house products.
Passive, index tracker funds are used to reduce the average Ongoing Charge Figure and provide efficient exposure to markets. Active funds are used for their potential to add performance alpha and also for differentiated investments with limited correlation to the rest of the model.
By blending both active and passive funds we aim to use the advantages of both to enhance the end risk-return outcome.
Our Model Portfolio charges
All models will aim to minimise the underlying OCF, with a ceiling of 1%, and generate an income yield that should at least cover all costs incurred by the end investor.
Our annual investment fee is 0.30% plus VAT.
The estimated OCF for each model is:
Thorntons Cautious Model 0.59%
Thorntons Steady Model 0.67%
Thorntons Moderate Model 0.61%
Thorntons Progressive Model 0.57%
Thorntons Adventurous Model 0.49%

Tideway are delighted to offer an 'at retirement' specialised discretionary management portfolio service on the Novia platform.
Tideway Asset Management's primary objective is to deliver secure returns ahead of inflation after all fees with limited risk of capital loss.
Tideway are "conservative contrarians" which means that we often invest against the consensus but with a conservative approach to risk taking. We invest on a safety-first basis and have a strong aversion to permanent capital losses. We prefer a focused list of actively managed investments with genuine diversification rather than a scattergun approach.
Our ideas can take months to show results and so investment returns may diverge from mainstream indexes for periods of time.
Research-driven investment process:
Tideway practices "bottom-up" investing and importantly we do not invest on the basis of macro-economic forecasts. We employ a robust research-driven investment process to identify individual assets with good risk-return profiles and the capacity to generate consistent income. We perform our own in-house research, including company and fund manager meetings, rather than relying on third party reports.
We value certainty of returns and dedicate our resources to finding secure cash flows at the right price.
Horizon Portfolio construction:
Tideway Horizon portfolios allocate capital based on the time horizon for the investment and the risk appetite of the investor. Because different assets have different return and risk characteristics, it is important to make investments and judge their performance over an appropriate time horizon.
Matching investments to the correct time horizon means that investors will never have to sell the wrong assets at the wrong time.
What we invest in:
Tideway's core investment expertise is in fixed income credit and specifically Hybrid Capital. Hybrid Capital is a form of debt that falls between senior corporate debt and equity. Hybrid Capital offers equity like returns from a debt instrument with predictable returns and quantifiable risks.
We focus our investments on large, household name companies with investment grade senior credit ratings and prefer regulated industries such as insurance, banking, utilities and infrastructure which form the majority of our portfolio assets.
In addition, where we have completed our company research and would like to invest but do not see Hybrid Capital as attractively priced, we may buy equity on a holding period of at least five years.
Horizon portfolios create a cascading cash flow all the way from the long dated investments through to short term bonds and cash. The objective is to meet investor income and capital needs whilst never having to be a forced seller of investments at a loss in the short term. Remember - whilst volatility can work with positive effect when accumulating an investment portfolio (buying on weakness) it can be ruinous when starting to decumulate and make withdrawals (selling on weakness).
Withdrawals are made by selling stable Horizon One assets first, meaning that the risk of having to sell an asset at the wrong time and realise losses is dramatically reduced. This improves long term returns. In addition, income from Horizon Two and Horizon Three assets can saved to meet unexpected cash needs or where there is no requirement for cash the income can be reinvested and returns will compound.
An annual management charge of 0.5% plus VAT

We are trusted to look after more than £20 billion on behalf of our clients and pride ourselves on offering the very highest levels of professional service to the financial adviser community.

• To back our judgement and invest alongside our clients
• The principle of diversification
• To embrace the use of both funds and single securities
• To use active and passive management techniques for the benefit of our clients
• To be aware of and to minimise the impact of costs

Waverton Investment Management is a discretionary investment management boutique focussed on providing high quality investment outcomes and client service. We are single minded in our approach and only provide investment management services - dovetailing with the financial and tax planning advice provided by financial planners.
The MPS has no minimum investment and provides a choice of six actively managed diversified portfolios. The portfolios invest in a broad range of investments, including open ended funds, closed ended vehicles and structured notes, and also across all asset classes. Alongside equities, fixed income and cash, alternative assets are used to ensure a fully diversified portfolio.
Our portfolio range has been constructed for all potential risk profiles and range from the equity orientated growth portfolio through to our bond focus model. All the portfolios have a real return above inflation objective and have also been risk rated by Distribution Technology.
We are highly rated by a number of independent agencies including Defaqto who have awarded our model service their highest 5 Star rating.
The models are constructed using three specialist Waverton OEIC Funds. Each fund covers an asset class and the three together are used as the building blocks for each portfolio. The funds are:
Importantly, the funds are specifically managed as model portfolio holdings. The strategies across the three funds are managed in a complementary way to ensure a consistent approach within the overall model portfolio.
We believe this structure provides a number of advantages including:
Our model portfolio service has a single clean annual management charge of 0.40% per annum.

Our company was founded to partner financial advisers. We act only as a discretionary fund manager and pledge never to intrude on our partner's relationship with their clients.
The Wellian Investment Solutions team has considerable investment experience and has provided independent fund research to financial advisers since 2001, extending to offer an authorised discretionary fund management service in 2008. We specialise in managing multi asset model portfolios, believing that they offer the most practical and effective means of managing risk adjusted performance that best meets the needs of your clients.
The extensive knowledge of our experienced team has been recognised with several awards and nominations for our model portfolio service, underlining our commitment to provide our partners with a range of high quality portfolios tailored to meet their client’s financial objectives and risk tolerances.
Why Wellian Investment Solutions?
We combine a 'top down' macroeconomic approach to asset allocation together with a 'bottom up' approach to fund selection to create a portfolio that is designed to match the designated risk profile.
Tolerance levels are set with upper and lower limits to ensure that the portfolios remain within their risk profiles, but they are flexible enough to react quickly and decisively in changing market conditions.
All the funds selected for the portfolios have been through a rigorous research process by the investment team before being approved for inclusion within the models.

When clients select Westbury they get a personalised service as unlike many private banks and wealth managers, our clients are able to speak to the person managing their wealth, rather than a relationship manager. We focus on “active wealth preservation” whereby our controlled risk approach can deliver positive returns in both challenging and not so challenging markets. We pride ourselves in creating competitively priced bespoke risk-adjusted portfolios for our clients.
At Westbury we carry out our own internal research, and aim to deliver absolute positive performance and significant relative performance even when equity markets fall.
We can manage any type of portfolio for you (SIPP, Trust, Ordinary Discretionary Portfolios, Offshore Bond etc.) either onshore or offshore. Clients can choose from a tailor-made investment portfolio, or highly diversified portfolios that invest in five or more asset classes.
Primarily we offer three strategies designed to meet different investment objectives and help target different attitudes to risk. Each strategy is a mixture of funds and direct equities, which means that clients are invested into independently managed investment funds as well as hand-picked stocks. The strategies contain different proportions of higher and lower risk assets to target client-specific objectives and needs
