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.
The Green Tree indicates that the DFM has informed Novia that they offer ESG investment models. Advisers should validate that the DFM's approach to ESG investing meets their own expectations.
8AM GLOBAL is a UK-based, independent asset manager
At the heart of our business is an experienced and successful investment team who manage a range of asset management solutions for the evolving needs of investors. We are passionate about, and committed to, delivering performance and consistency to our clients. Our primary objective is always to protect and grow our clients' wealth.
The 8AM Clever Model portfolio strategies incorporate the Clever Adviser Technology fund selection and monitoring process. This structure benefits from algorithmic and analytical investment research capabilities, free from many of the behavioural finance vagaries of more traditional approaches.
In managing the Model Portfolios, 8AM Global utilises quantitative investment research generated by CleverAdviser Technology to drive the investment decisions. The system is a reliable investment proposition based on empirical fund analysis.
The process uses algorithms and data, rather than human instinct and emotion, to help generate our fund selection and monitoring.
By analysing millions of pieces of fund data per month, the system removes the possibility of her mentality distorting the decision-making process, resulting in more rational, non-emotional, investment outcomes.
By using this analytical, evidence-based approach, we aim to reduce the negative influence that reactionism, short-termism and subjectivity often have on the investment decision-making process.
The system collects and examines information from over 4,000 UK registered funds. It monitors individual funds, checking whether each is doing well - or not so well - and objectively selects new funds to replace under performing ones. It achieves this by using a bespoke algorithm which has successfully delivered capital growth for over ten years.

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 - Athena Managed Investment Solutions have been developed to provide Advisers with a solution that focuses primarily on the clients' risk profile. The service consists of nine, ready-made portfolios that have been deemed appropriate for clients with risk profiles of 2 through to 8 (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 a number of satellite holdings 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 three 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, together with a number of satellite holdings. The funds focus on wealth preservation and downside protection, seeking to smooth returns and minimise the investor's exposure to risk and volatility.

Our quality bias naturally leads to a high expose to new economy trends and long-term sustainability, thanks to our integrated ESG research process. In addition we offer bespoke discretionary management and a range of equity growth funds, the later providing significant internal research support. Portfolios are constructed to appropriately combine risk, cost and opportunity for return.
About our Models
Our range of multi asset portfolios includes accumulation and sustainability models across six different risk levels. Each risk level has a primary risk objective based on market volatility and overall asset allocation. Each model type will hold largely the same underlying investments weighted appropriately at each risk level in order to aid consistency and transparency.
Portfolios combine active, passive and factor/smart beta investments to give a core MPS suitable for a range of clients and wrappers. This combination of investments is cost efficient and does not compromise on quality or performance.
We monitor risk by using qualitative data on an ongoing basis with a formal review and will, where necessary, rebalance quarterly
Each model is multi asset and typically will hold 20-25 positions in order to provide diversification without diluting our core quality-based approach. Equity allocation is based on the MSCI AC World index giving a strong global allocation basis and typically a low weighting to the UK market.
All investments held, whether in standard or sustainable models, are assessed and monitored using our proprietary environmental, social and governance (ESG) system resulting in an overall ESG score.
We are happy engage with advisers to provide tailored model portfolios based on their own risk system or investment proposition.

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.

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.

We offer a range of investment management services to private high net worth individuals, pension funds, institutions, and trusts. We also provide offshore investment management.

We have thirteen offices across the UK and the Channel Islands including London, East Anglia, Hampshire, Leamington Spa, Leeds, Manchester, Taunton, Tunbridge Wells, Scotland, Wales, Jersey, and Guernsey.
Choosing your model
Our Managed Portfolio Service provides a range of 10 portfolios, seven active and three passive, risk-rated, diversified portfolios. The portfolios invest in a wide range of investments (Unit Trusts, OEICs, Structured Products and Cash) to ensure a spread of risk across the full range of asset classes.

Multi Asset Funds

Our Responsible Investment Service (RIS) is aimed at clients with the dual objective of responsible investment and return generation in line with defined risk profiles. The service is integrated into our centralised investment process to ensure the same level of due diligence, monitoring and accountability is applied across all investments. This is extremely important as it’s designed to offer our core expertise, while additionally meeting clients’ responsible investing requirements.
On the Novia platform, we offer three ‘Advance’ models (listed below). The primary objective of the advance strategy is to invest in and therefore advance businesses that are either providing solutions to sustainability issues through the goods and services that they provide, or have strong corporate level outputs related to their Environmental, Social and Governance footprint.
We’re therefore taking a ‘whole economy’ approach, i.e although we have exposure to investments with a very clear impact on sustainability issues, we also seek out businesses that are making positive contributions to how they run their company that have positive impacts. We believe investing in and engaging with businesses like this is an important part of addressing the sustainability agenda.
Fees and Charges
For the MPS, BMAM offer Novia clients an Annual Management Charge of 0.25% (+VAT) for the active models and 0.20% (+VAT) for the passive models.
Our RIS models have an Annual Management Charge of 0.30% (+VAT).

Thematic – we look to use funds with investment strategies linked to the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Whether we realise it or not, we all bring our personal values to bear in making choices in life. What sets us apart is that we work closely with our clients and their advisers to help them to define what ‘ethical’ or ‘responsible’ investment means to them. We then interpret the results in practical ways which never ignore the need for real-world financial outcomes.
Our dedicated team is committed to achieving sustainable growth through independence and innovation, respect, responsibility and a highly personalised service. As an employee-owned business, we can ensure that everything we do reflects not only the values we share as co-owners of our own business, but the principles that are important to our clients and their advisers too.
We call this approach ‘thoughtful investing’.
We don’t just have an ESG offering as an adjunct to our investment approach. Our sole approach is based on a fully-integrated ESG process, with outcomes evidenced by a long-term track record. In fact, we’ve developed our own ‘B.E.S.T’ responsible investment process, which is an integral part of everything we do.
Why not take a look at the thoughtful investing pages of our web site at:
You’ll find details about the history of ‘ethical investing’, different responsible investment approaches and our own approaches to responsible and sustainable investing, stewardship and engagement.
We’ve been running a comprehensive range of ESG model portfolios on the Novia platform for many years now, with the results of our most popular model portfolio strategy externally verified by independent Asset Risk Consultants. This has convincingly proved the point that investing responsibly, yet wisely does not mean compromising on financial returns.
As a long-established wealth manager with an absolute focus on preserving and growing our clients’ wealth, what matters most to our clients, matters most to us.
Private individuals, family offices, trusts, businesses and pension plans all rely on us to provide them with bespoke, discretionary and advisory investment services. Skilled in investment management, wealth planning and banking services – we also offer discretionary fund management to external advisers and their clients, and we are a leading charity fund manager in the UK.
For two centuries we have helped clients look forward to a successful future. With each client we plan for the long term and invest the time to build a personal understanding of their unique circumstances, goals and ambitions. The majority of our clients, and many of our own people, work with us for years, decades and even generations. This creates relationships of unusual depth.
Our experience of navigating complex markets and adapting to change, helps us balance risk and reward. The investment expertise we call upon as part of a truly global asset manager, combined with our long-standing experience of advising clients, is what sets us apart.
Your future, our focus.

Clients of Close Brothers Asset Management include families, charities, institutions, intermediaries and private clients. They provide a range of investment management services helping clients to secure their financial future. Their approach to asset management focuses on their robust investment process and the expertise of their investment managers.
Investors can access their investment expertise through a range of funds and discretionary managed portfolios. They do not believe in a one size fits all approach, which is why they have built a range of investment solutions. They share a common investment process, yet have the capability to tailor investment strategies to meet a broad range of investor needs.
Close Managed Portfolio Service (MPS)
The Managed Portfolio Service (MPS) is a discretionary, actively managed service for private clients. There are four different risk profiles to suit a range of needs. Through MPS, you have access to professionally managed portfolios invested in third party funds with a global outlook.
The portfolios are designed as a long-term investment and may not be suitable if you plan to withdraw your money within five years.
Our investment philosophy is guided by four core principles:
A rigorous and robust research programme greatly increases the likelihood of identifying investment managers that can outperform over the medium to long-term.
We look for managers with an investment process that is repeatable and easy to understand, and where past performance is aligned with their process and style. Importantly, we like managers who share our own philosophy for delivering strong, risk adjusted returns.

The Copia investment philosophy
Copia offers a range of purpose-built portfolios with different objectives to address different client needs. We understand that objectives for investing vary depending on the different stages of the lifecycle, with each carrying associated risks. These risks then need to be managed using different approaches and strategies. A fundamental part of the Copia philosophy is the belief that the main driver of portfolio outcomes is allocation across a broad range of asset classes. Industry-based research has shown that asset allocation, rather than stock selection, is the main driver of portfolio returns. Copia focuses on developing asset allocation strategies to achieve specific portfolio objectives which ultimately connect to client needs. Finally, portfolios are constructed by using ETFs, Index Funds and Actively Managed Funds for transparency, diversification and risk control. All Copia portfolios are managed professionally using quantitative tools for risk management.
We bring an institutional approach to portfolio management. We have developed a proprietary toolkit which comprises of five key capabilities for designing, building and managing portfolios:
1. Our Capital Market Assumptions
A choice of Capital Market Assumptions for Strategic Asset Allocation from leading research providers
2. Our Risk Barometer
Our Risk Barometer is a proprietary quantitative model to indicate near- to long-term managed risk regimes
3. Our Fund Screeners
Our Fund Screeners apply different systematic metrics to select active funds, index funds, ETFs and Investment Trusts
4. Our Optimiser
Our Optimiser is a mathematical tool to target a specific objective whilst satisfying constraints to ensure portfolio efficiency
5. Portfolio Analytics
Copia’s Portfolio Analytics provides granular insight for advisers.
The Copia portfolio ranges and investment process
Our portfolio ranges all have different objectives requiring varied approaches to portfolio design but using our Copia investment process and capabilities. They are designed and developed to address different Adviser considerations and targets to help support client needs – whilst all being managed to a consistent investment process throughout. Each portfolio range contains a selection of different risk profiles to help Advisers select the right portfolios for their clients.
There are three stages to our investment process
> Set Portfolio Objectives to meet client needs
> Focus on Asset Allocation to match and maintain those objectives
> Deliver smarter Portfolio Construction with screened funds and realign
Whilst quantitatively driven, our investment team retains oversight and control over the entire investment process. Our standard charge for using the Copia investment service is 0.30%pa + VAT and is calculated and deducted every month from the cash facility in your account.
You can find more information about each of our portfolio ranges along with up-coming new product launches on our website at www.copia-capital.co.uk

Copia ESG Approach – specific to our Copia Select portfolios and Custom portfolio range, tailored for each Adviser firm.
The Copia Select ESG range uses the same strategic asset allocation models as the firm’s Select range that was launched in 2016 but uses ESG-compliant funds for the equity and corporate bond exposures. This has been driven by adviser demand which is seeing a twin trend of growing numbers of clients requesting that portfolios are ESG-compliant, as well as greater regulatory focus on product governance where ESG considerations need to be addressed.
We use a variety of funds with different ESG screening and investing methodologies. One of our preferred investment approaches is to use funds/ETFs which employ the MSCI Socially Responsible Indexes investment approach.
The methodology behind the MSCI SRI Indexes is to target companies with the best ESG score across different sectors, meanwhile excluding businesses with high negative social or environmental impact. Typical subsector exclusions include: Alcohol, Tobacco, Gambling, Adult Entertainment, Civilian Firearms, Military Weapons, Nuclear Power, GMOs. Apart from exclusions, we also look for funds that screen for companies that can achieve a positive impact in areas where they operate and hence reduce investors’ risk exposure to businesses overlooking ethical or social factors in operations.
Copia also designs ESG portfolios for clients who wish to incorporate ESG considerations into investment decisions without looking to sacrifice returns. When it comes to ethical investing, investors’ social and moral preferences/principles can be very different. Copia also builds and manages customised ESG portfolios for advisory firms taking into account their clients’ specific ESG preferences.

The EQ Positive Impact Portfolios
The EQ Positive Impact Portfolios are a range of sustainable and impact 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 has developed rigorous scoring methodologies. These help us to measure the degree of intentionality of a particular fund to have an impact on society and the environment as well as the real impact it has achieved. 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.
Since their launch in 2012, the EQ Positive Impact Portfolios have revolutionised the approach to ethical and sustainable investing. They have been designed under a dual mandate approach which is to maximise both risk adjusted returns and the positive impact on people and planet. The portfolios invest in companies which have developed solutions to the world’s largest challenges such as climate change, health, access to clean water or education, financial exclusion. We also believe that it is really important to measure the impact that each client achieves through their investments in the EQ Positive Impact Portfolios. That’s why we publish an impact report each year and have developed an impact calculator which you can check on our website

About Our Models
Our models are a suite of risk optimised portfolios targeted at the complete range of investor risk profiles. Using the quality investment choices available from the FE Investments Approved Funds List, the portfolios are then blended together by our proprietary optimisation technology to construct the most diverse portfolio possible.
Designed to maximise market exposure for any given level of risk through an optimal combination of active and passive managed funds, each portfolio is regularly reviewed and has strict targets that it must meet in regards to both performance and risk.
Our Responsibly Managed portfolios have been designed for clients to make positive impact from their investments. We invest in funds across the responsibility spectrum and aim to provide clients with the choice to invest for good.
We have chosen to call the portfolios “Responsible”, as each individual’s definition of ethical investment varies. There is spectrum of methodologies for screening and it covers negative screening, ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) and positive screening.
Negative screening excludes controversial investments which typically include armaments, tobacco, pornography, animal testing and alcohol. ESG, is a way of measuring a company’s social conscience in their industries. Finally, positive screening relates to company’s commitment to providing a more sustainable future, advocating positive change. This includes impact investing, where pioneers intend to have a positive contribution to society.
Each of the portfolios blend a range of fund strategies across the whole portfolio, with one to two funds per asset class or geographical allocation. Our range of portfolios focuses on the most frequently selected risk levels and we currently have three portfolios within the Responsibly Managed range. These portfolios are rebalanced half yearly following an extensive review by our team.

Our suitability and portfolio construction processes are designed to dovetail with those of the IFA, to ensure that our portfolios perform as promoted and expected.
About Our Models
Our range of Model Portofolios is designed to provide a solution for every client. We have twelve models, based on equity content and portfolio objective. To be as transparent as possible, each model carries the range of equity weight in its title: Cautious (0-40% Equity), Moderate (40-60% Equity), Adventurous (60-80% Equity) and Equity Risk (80-100% Equity). For each of these there is a choice of three objectives: Core (seeks returns from a combination of capital growth and income), Higher Income (seeks returns primarily from income) and Sustainable World (seeks returns from sustainable and positive impact investments).
All our Model Portfolios are constructed according to disciplined control of asset allocation and risk, using the same processes as our Discretionary Portfolio Management Service. We also leverage the fund research expertise of our award-winning Fund Management team.
Our Portfolios are long-only and multi-asset. We aim to be efficiently diversified and our portfolios typically hold up to twenty funds. We will keep cash holdings to a minimum, believing that the split of a client’s assets between cash and the investment portfolio is the decision of the Adviser. We will also react appropriately to market conditions, but will keep weightings within their specified tolerances.
Our Portfolios are constructed with a mind to be as cost-efficient as possible, but not to the extent of compromising quality or performance.
The management team is Jim Wood-Smith, James Clark, Ian Woolley and Ben Luck.
Hawksmoor’s MPS holds a Defaqto 5 Star and 4 Diamond rating. Our Discretionary Portfolio Management is also Defaqto 5 Star rated. Our MI Hawksmoor Vanbrugh Fund was Winner Best Multi-Asset Fund: Long-Term Growth in the Professional Adviser Awards 2019.
Our ESG approach:
Hawksmoor’s award-winning, four-strong, in-house Research team has a rigorous and disciplined approach to selecting sustainable investments. We attend regular meetings, hold conference calls and attend investment conference sessions with the managers of sustainable funds, and ensure that we are updated at least once a year on each sustainable fund in which we invest. Allied with our proprietary fund research process, we have developed a framework for evaluating different types of sustainable funds – Impact, Integration and Exclusion.
This framework helps ourselves, our Investment Managers, financial advisers and their clients to think about and position different types of sustainable funds, within an investment universe in which it can be hard to differentiate between approaches to sustainable investment and to ‘draw a line in the sand’. We invest in funds which sit in each of these three categories, believing that there can be a place for each type of fund within Hawksmoor’s Sustainable World Model Portfolio Service.

WHO ARE IBOSS?
IBOSS are a boutique asset management company, providing cost-effective, innovative and adaptive investment solutions exclusively to the financial adviser marketplace.
The company was created in 2008, the founders of IBOSS Limited had all previously held senior positions within advisory firms and had grown frustrated with the available investment solutions on the market.
We only deal with professional financial advisers and planners, as we firmly believe clients benefit from financial advice when making long term investment decisions, and therefore we don’t deal directly with retail investors.
We are independent of outside influences, selecting funds from the whole of market and with no restrictions placed on us by third parties. This allows us for free thought on market and economic trends, and means we are not influenced by any ‘house’ view other than our own.
IBOSS manages over 7,000 clients and over £1.3bn of funds under influence across four investment solutions.
Our original investment solution was the IBOSS Limited Portfolio Management Service (PMS). Seven risk-rated model portfolios were constructed in 2006 by Chris Metcalfe, Managing Director and Co-Founder of IBOSS. These model portfolios continue to offer excellent risk-conscious returns.
OUR INVESTMENT TEAM
IBOSS Asset Management was established in 2016 and shares the same, highly experienced, Investment Team as the PMS.
Investment decisions are made collectively, with the expertise and dedication of our Investment Team. Headed up by Chris Metcalfe (IMC), our Investment Director, and supported by Chris Rush (IMC), who is our Senior Investment Analyst. Michael Heapy (IMC), our other Investment Analyst and Rebecca Anscombe, Head of Systems, complete the team.
Our success has come from a dynamic and pragmatic approach to investing. We firmly believe that different styles of management, tools and research, work in different parts of the investment cycle and we therefore maintain a flexible investment process.
We invest across equities, bonds, property and cash, taking a highly diversified approach. Both onshore and offshore funds are considered.
WHAT IS THE MANAGED PORTFOLIO SERVICE?
The Managed Portfolio Service range offers two discretionary investment solutions that provide a practical and cost-efficient way to outsource the management of your clients’ investments, whilst aligning them to their long-term investment goals.
MANAGED PORTFOLIO SERVICE (MPS)
The actively managed range consists of eight risk-rated model portfolios that mirror the excellent and highly successful Portfolio Management Service (PMS). Holding between 35 and 40 funds in each portfolio and established at a minimum 1% weighting and a maximum 4% weighting.
Competitively charged at 0.2% +VAT DFM fee and with a portfolio construction cap of 0.60% OCF.
PASSIVE MANAGED PORTFOLIO SERVICE (Passive MPS)
The passively managed range consists of seven risk-rated model portfolios that closely mirror the asset allocation of the Portfolio Management Service (PMS). Holding between 15 and 30 funds in each portfolio and established at a minimum 1% weighting and a maximum 8% weighting.
Competitively charged at 0.125% +VAT DFM fee and with a portfolio construction cap of 0.15% OCF.
WHO IS THE MPS FOR?
Effectively managing clients’ investments can be a very challenging and time-consuming task, by delegating investment responsibilities to us, we manage your clients’ asset allocation, fund selection and rebalances, allowing you to preserve client relationships, as well as more time to develop and grow your business.
The discretionary MPS is for clients who want that utmost simplicity, such as retirees who may not want the burden of having to complete regular paperwork or professionals who simply do not have the time, our Managed Portfolio Service delivers the perfect solution for them.
Furthermore, advisers and planners who are looking for a passive oriented option to accommodate their more cost-conscious clients, will especially find the Passive MPS appealing.
WHITE LABELLED CLIENT COMMUNICATION SERVICE
Each quarter clients invested within either of our MPS ranges can receive a white labelled report detailing the allocation changes to their portfolio, along with an overview that explains why each decision has been made. These updates are free of charge and are sent directly to the client on behalf of their adviser. The quarterly client email carries the branding of the advisory company and are addressed from the adviser themselves.
We also include a Market Summary; a document that informs the client of all the latest and relevant economic information, from stock market performance to political matters which may be affecting their valuations. We feel this part of our communication provides an invaluable insight into our Investment Team’s thought process, whilst satisfying clients with a level of expertise that they expect from their adviser.
Our client facing material is jargon-free, making it easy for clients to engage with and appreciate. Our quarterly updates create a level of client involvement that makes them part of their investment journey.
The same philosophy is found running throughout all of our investment solutions, including the MPS;
• A fixed strategic asset allocation with tactical overlay
• Completely independent fund selection
• A robust quantitative and qualitative process
• An emphasis on consistency of returns relative to benchmark
• An aim to have a maximum of 4% of assets held in any single fund (excluding deposit funds)
• A desire to avoid restrictions, which may hamper investment performance
The proposition aim is to beat the relevant benchmark over as many time periods as possible, with less than benchmark volatility, lower drawdowns and across all risk ratings. We also believe that a small team is important in allowing ideas for conviction to be implemented, whilst ensuring there is opportunity for challenge and debate.
The portfolios themselves contain a fixed strategic asset allocation to match that of the portfolio’s investment objective, with a highly diversified fund selection.
Within our model portfolios for either MPS range, we use no form of any volatility parameters, we believe these can push managers into making counterintuitive decisions, especially in times of market stress. We also don’t consider the ratings of agencies, especially where they require payment from the fund house.
PERFORMANCE TRACK RECORD
The discretionary model portfolios of the actively managed MPS mirror the IBOSS Limited Portfolio Management Service existing portfolios that were launched in 2008, meaning simulated past performance can be used to demonstrate a 10+ year track record.
FEES AND CHARGES
The actively managed MPS has an ongoing Investment Management Charge of 0.20% +VAT per annum and an OCF cap of 0.60%.
The Passive MPS has an ongoing Investment Management Charge of 0.125% +VAT per annum and an OCF cap of 0.15%.
The minimum investment amount is £100.

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 a trading name of King & Shaxson Asset Management, and is part of King & Shaxson 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 Limited (Company Number: 869780), a member of the London Stock Exchange, and King & Shaxson Asset Management Limited (Company Number: 3870667). The Registered Office for the companies is First Floor, Cutlers Court, 115 Houndsditch, London, EC3A 7BR. All companies are registered in England and are part of the PhillipCapital Group.

Here at King & Shaxson, Ethical Investing is our sole focus. Our model portfolios were launched in February 2010 following demand from our IFA clients for a discretionary ethical product that could be accessed through wraps and platforms. We have designed five fund of fund ethical model portfolios to cater for a range of risk and income requirements. We also offer four ‘Direct Equity’ models which combine bond funds and direct equity holdings. This offering may suit the more ethically minded client as we have full control over the individual equity holdings.

Kleinwort Hambros offers a range of six global investment strategies with a choice of risk, return and income. Our strategies seek to generate a real return exceeding the rate of inflation over the course of a five to seven year period, while targeting a level of risk similar to the long-run historical risks of investing in blended portfolios of bonds and equities.
The strategies are risk-rated from 1 to 5, where 1 is intended to be the lowest level of risk and 5 the highest. Risk in this context is measured in terms of the annualised volatility of monthly returns.
Kleinwort Hambros’ models are as follows: Cautious (risk rating: 3); Balanced (risk rating4); Income (risk rating: 4); Growth (risk rating 5); Growth and Income (risk rating 4); Aggressive (risk rating 5).

Why appoint LGT Vestra under the Novia Platform
LGT Vestra recognise that advisers are increasingly looking to platforms to help manage their clients' assets. We believe that by teaming with Novia to provide a discretionary management service to advisers, we can add significant value to both their business and their clients. The key features are:

Charges for discretionary management provided by LGT Vestra are highly competitive. All charges are based on the value of assets under management.
The LGT Vestra Sustainable Model Portfolio Service is a discretionary investment service comprising multi-asset diversified portfolios to meet a range of objectives and risk profiles. The ultimate goal of the Sustainable MPS is to generate strong and consistent investment returns for clients, whilst supporting our sustainable philosophy. The portfolios will aim to achieve this by investing in a diversified range of funds which incorporate themes such as renewable energy, financial inclusion, education, social housing, climate change action, sustainable waste management and renewable material production. The LGT Vestra market views provide the macroeconomic investment overlay for the Sustainable MPS portfolios. These views are implemented on a monthly basis by the SMPS Investment Committee across the SMPS portfolios. We have four sustainable investment themes, two of which are environmental and two of which are social. These are designed to help our clients understand the thematic exposure in the portfolios, and to better understand the companies and the impact those companies are having. We have mapped a number of the goals across our Sustainable Investment Pillars which outline a number sustainable investment opportunities and trends seen in the portfolios.

We work closely in partnership with our clients to design, develop and manage innovative and competitive investment solutions.
Starting with a thorough understanding of the specific needs of their ultimate investors, we help our professional clients tailor appropriate investment solutions.
We also recognise that many advisory businesses have well-established relationships with third party platforms, wraps and product providers like Novia. Liontrust have therefore developed a range of competitively priced discretionary portfolios that are available for the first time to intermediaries on the Novia platform.
The Dynamic Beta portfolios
A wide range of portfolios with clear volatility targets and ranges allowing Advisory businesses to identify and select the portfolios most appropriate for their client risk profiles.

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:

All of MAIA’s portfolios use Distribution Technology’s risk output. Their investment process is a continuous exercise which is based on their initial strategic asset allocation. MAIA continually monitor funds’ asset allocations relative to benchmarks and have an ongoing review of fund selections. Whilst MAIA believe in active management, their primary concern is to identify funds capable of maintaining consistent results over the longer term.
The team’s breadth of experience allows them to invest across a diverse range of funds, including more esoteric funds, such as global convertibles and thematic funds, and they consider their investment style to be a diversified, multi-asset approach.
With the aim of utilising their position to offer full support and a personal customer service to financial advisers, MAIA offer direct access to their investment managers.
Ethical investment solution
The investment objective of our ESG model portfolios is to predominantly invest into funds with a sustainable or ethical mandate and achieve capital appreciation with a moderate risk profile generating a total return. The portfolios are made up of predominantly ESG funds adopting a multi-asset approach to portfolio construction. We believe that sustainable investment is not only for investors who want their investments to “do good”, but there is in fact a compelling investment case for all investors taking this approach.

Our purpose is to enhance the Financial Wellness™ of individuals, their communities and their businesses and we are committed to providing investment solutions that can deliver against real client investment objectives.
The Momentum Outcome-based Investment approach is a unique way of investing that gives your clients access to the benefits of world-class asset-liability matching principles, historically only available to large institutional investors. This asset-liability matching process ensures that investments are chosen to be more in line with your clients’ specific goals, investment periods and ultimately your clients’ attitude towards risk.
Momentum’s international investment and wealth businesses began in 1998. The business has evolved over the years, from a South African offshore investment focus to now offer a broad range of investment related services and solutions to retail and corporate clients across the United Kingdom, South Africa and select international markets.
Our commitment to better understanding the financial framework of the UK continues from our creation of the Momentum UK Household Financial Wellness Index. Created in partnership with The University of Bristol, this annual index provides invaluable insight into the habits and attitudes that inform UK’s personal money management.
The Managed Portfolio Range
The Momentum Managed Portfolios were designed to give investors access to discretionary investment strategies. Our solutions are structured to provide a sophisticated investment offering that aims to perform strongly in an array of market conditions and is very competitively priced.
Our Managed range consists of six Managed Portfolios and three Income Portfolios designed to cater for a wide range of risk and return appetites.
The Portfolios offer targeted inflation-plus returns over four or more years. They are broadly diversified investing in a range of equities, fixed income, cash, property and alternative strategies. The Portfolios asset allocation is actively managed and reflects Momentum’s views on asset classes, regions and currency. These can be implemented using either active or passive strategies. The Portfolios are also rebalanced on a regular basis to ensure that the asset allocations adhere to the original risk profiles. The continual review of the level of expected returns from each asset class determines the ongoing composition of each portfolio.
This process has been in place since the inception of the funds, and also previously with other funds managed at Momentum Global Investment Management.
Our Investment Philosophy
Momentum`s robust and all-encompassing investment process has our outcomes-based investment philosophy at heart. Clients invest with a goal in mind, and it is our resolute mission to make that goal a reality whilst making the journey to that outcome as palatable as possible. This philosophy is informed by the following core beliefs:
Inefficiencies create valuation extremes and offer opportunities
Dynamic asset allocation will add value over time
Effective use of broad range of asset classes generates better risk:return profile
Blending uncorrelated assets enables true diversification
Reversion to the mean works in the long run
Wait for the ‘fat pitch’
Dynamic manager selection is essential
Employing specialists to maximise opportunities
Asset Class/ Investment style/ manager
An Aligned Investment Process
Our core strength is a detailed, in-depth understanding of multiple asset classes. For each asset class we undertake extensive modelling using proprietary techniques to assess likely returns under different scenarios. The finesse of our process allows us to be very nimble in changing asset allocation. This allows us to build robust and agile portfolios that seek to outperform across a multitude of economic climates.
Our investment team covers research across a broad range of asset classes and is responsible for external manager selection. As well as picking the right style of managers, we also aim to pick the “best of breed” within any style. We look for managers who have a clearly defined and well-articulated investment philosophy. The manager must translate that philosophy into a coherent process on a consistent basis, and have the necessary resources to repeatedly achieve this.
Our risk management philosophy goes beyond expressing risk as volatility units or VaR measures. Ultimately for our investors risk is the chance of a permanent impairment of real purchasing power. Our approach explicitly focuses on this type of risk, allowing the fund to aim to deliver superior returns over the long run.
The end result is a well-diversified, multi-asset, multi-strategy, and multi-execution solution.
We take advantage of market valuation opportunities to change the strategy allocation but only if it enhances the probability of achieving the outcome without introducing excessive additional risk.
Since Momentum has no ties to other financial services groups we are free to build our clients’ solutions with the best available strategies across the market.
Your goal is our benchmark
Our outcome-based investment approach allows the funds to complement the true financial planning process by providing returns that are conducive to an investor`s needs. This results in an emphasis on meaningful client-centric returns. The feedback we often hear is that clients find it increasingly hard to engage with a benchmark as a success metric for their investments, but would prefer to know whether they are on track to achieve their goals. Since our investment solutions begin and end with our client`s goals we are able to do just that.

About Morningstar Managed Portfolios
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 you can use as part of a long-term investment plan for your clients.
Active portfolios use a valuation-driven asset allocation and active management to deliver outcomes. They span equities, fixed-income and alternative investments, providing exposure to a broad range of return drivers that can be weighted according to our expectations for risk and returns.
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. Our passive series features exact expressions of our asset-allocation targets for each risk level.
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.

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 OBI Ethical portfolios are designed to provide sustainable and ethical investment options for our clients who outline ethical considerations as a key preference when defining their investment management requirements. The aim of the overall ethical proposition is to mirror the strategy of the core OBI portfolios in terms of asset classes and geographical regions, while maintaining an ethical overlay in the underlying fund selection.
The OBI Ethical portfolios focus on delivering positive outcomes through investments which follow strict ESG criteria. The first screening mechanism for the investment universe is the ESG screen, which actively eliminates investments according to strict ESG ethical guidelines and may include removing investments in areas such as alcohol, tobacco, gambling, weapons, oil, etc. The second part of the screening process is the SRI (socially responsible investing) screen, which adds a positive screen to identify those investments which are more responsible and contribute to the long-term benefit of society.
The OBI Ethical portfolios are strategically managed to ensure that the overall allocation and risk tolerances remains in line with our core macroeconomic OBI thesis and subsequent outlooks for asset classes and geographical regions.

P1 Investment Management is delighted to offer our range of model portfolios through the Novia platform to provide financial intermediaries with a cost-effective investment solution.
Managed Portfolio Service
Our Managed Portfolio Service (MPS) provides a range of carefully and professionally managed investment portfolios spanning hybrid, bespoke, passive and ethical portfolios.
The key stages involved in creating and managing our portfolios include:
Establish Portfolio Objective & Risk Profile – We determine where the portfolio will sit in our range and what we believe the client is looking for when investing in to it.
Strategic Asset Allocation – We use Personal Investment Management & Financial Advice Association (PIMFA) to derive our risk levels, which is flexed to out in-house views. The Strategic asset allocation is generated on a long term view, looking past 5 years.
Tactical Asset Allocation – The Tactical asset allocation is a shorter term view, derived from our view on the global economy, monetary and fiscal policies, valuations and currency. By the constant fluctuations in these factors the tactical asset allocation relies on ongoing idea generation and these are formally discussed at quarterly investment committee meeting.
Fund Selection – We maintain a panel of researched, approved and monitored investments. Our panel includes a range of potential holdings that can be used in different scenarios and to exploit varying opportunities. Where we believe that active managers are unable to generate positive net relative returns, we will use passive investments. This removes an element of selection risk from the portfolio in addition to reducing the overall cost. The amount of passives held will vary dependent on asset allocation, availability of appropriate investments and the relevant portfolio objective.
Portfolio Construction – Appropriate investments are selected from the panel to meet the tactical asset allocation determined by the portfolio’s risk profile and objective. Core holdings are used to build the bulk of the portfolio. Such holdings are likely to have a long time horizon and are investments we expect to outperform consistently, compounding outperformance. Tactical holdings are used when there is a perceived opportunity in the market, whilst ensuring the investment will work well with other holdings within the portfolio, and where appropriate for the risk level. For portfolios with higher income objectives, we may adjust the tactical asset allocation to ensure that the income target is met. The changes will not affect the overall risk level of the portfolio and are only done to the satisfaction of the investment committee.
Ongoing Monitoring, Investment Changes & Rebalancing – Performance contribution analysis of the portfolio enables us to identify areas that require addressing as well as furthering our understanding of the interaction of funds’ returns and their implications at a portfolio level. All the model portfolios are subjected to a comprehensive quantitative risk analysis on a six monthly basis to highlight areas which could present a previously unforeseen risk.
Investments that have performed particularly well will become rebalanced downwards on a quarterly basis and for poorer performers, vice versa. Quarterly rebalancing ensures that a portfolio does not become over concentrated in areas that have done well and realigns the portfolio fully with our most recent asset allocation decision.
Hybrid Model Portfolios
Our Hybrid Portfolio Service provides a range of carefully and professionally managed investment portfolios spanning five risk levels and three core objectives; income, growth and a balance of the two. With the client outcome in mind, our investment process combines our strategic and tactical asset allocation with granular portfolio construction and stock selection to add further value. Our portfolios are built around core holdings with satellite tactical investments aiming to take advantage of shorter term themes. The portfolios consist of active and passive investments. Passive investments are used where we believe active managers are not able to add value sufficiently to justify the higher charges. As a result, we believe our hybrid portfolios have the ability to outperform while having a lower overall cost.
The funds have been independently rated by Dynamic Planner®
We operate nine core strategies across five risk levels:
A full brochure and factsheets are available on request.
A service suited to clients who require bespoke investment management of their investments, with the day to day management of your investment portfolio being handed over to the investment managers. We use a wider panel of investments including investment trusts.
P1 Investment Management will establish a strategy, monitor your clients’ holdings, and make investment decisions on their behalf. This ensures the portfolio remains appropriate to their risk profile and targeted at achieving individual objectives.
ForBespoke portfolios, the management charge is 0.25% plus VAT, Client meetings are £200 plus VAT. There is a minimum annual fee of £1,500 plus VAT.
We have a range of five risk rated passive portfolios that are able to meet the majority of client needs, whilst minimising costs. This has been done by ensuring that both the cost of the underlying investments are kept low alongside a competitive P1 discretionary management charge. In a low return environment, cost is becoming an important factor in determining to absolute return of an investment portfolio.
Portfolios have been constructed with a long term time horizon from the outset, limiting the need for regular intervention. This will minimise transaction fees, as we will simply look to make changes to the portfolio for the purposes of rebalancing or where we feel that the cost of the transaction is outweighed by a saving from an ongoing fee. Quarterly portfolio rebalancing enables us to ensure that the portfolio remains appropriate for the targeted risk level.
Portfolios have been built around core holdings of UK equities, global equities and fixed income alongside alternatives providing an element of diversification. The Strategic Asset Allocation should ensure that the portfolios remain appropriate for the targeted risk level. We will not take views on short term market movements or themes, leaving the natural diversification and rebalancing process to balance the portfolio. The portfolios are not volatility or return targeted.
The service is provided at a price of 0.1% and not subject to VAT.
Ethical Model Portfolios

Our ethical oversight committee provide checks and balances to any fund shortlisted for inclusion in our models.
P1 also contribute to the ethical and sustainable investment community through published articles and specialist commentary. P1 also runs a number of free CPD seminars on a number of topics.
A full brochure and factsheets are available on request.
The cost of P1's Ethical Model Portfolio Service on Novia is just 0.32% per annum and they are not subject to VAT.
To show that P1 Investment Management Ltd is committed to meeting the standards required for the best practice in Environmental Management, the company holds the ISO 14001 certification. This certification demonstrates that you can have confidence that we act in an environmentally responsible way. P1 are also members of The UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association (UKSIF) and a signatory to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)
P1 Ethical & Sustainable Model Portfolios
Because we take ethical and sustainable investing extremely seriously at P1, we employ staff with formally recognised qualifications in ethical and sustainable investment. We truly understand the issues and challenges surrounding ethical investment and can demonstrate that our commitment is more than skin-deep.
Our expertise means that we can strive to ensure that we select ethical funds that are meeting the highest possible standards and we can avoid those that merely seek an ethical label for marketing purposes.
We require our ethical and sustainable portfolios to meet a range of requirements including a combination of screening approaches, as well as best-in-class and ‘influence and engagement’. By monitoring the range of ethical investment approaches that funds use, we are able to select those with real commitment and avoid funds with minimal ethical investment standards.

Launched in 2010, PortfolioMetrix was designed and developed to challenge the old order of investment services available to financial advisers and their clients. PortfolioMetrix provides world class investment management with world class technology. Partnering with PortfolioMetrix frees up time, allowing advisers to focus on the bigger business picture and take the pressure off worrying about investment management and administration, performance and reporting. PortfolioMetrix specialises in asset allocation, fund selection and rebalancing all of which contribute towards the PortfolioMetrix Alpha (higher expected returns for investors).
However, this is just the tip of the iceberg as the technology affords deeper client analysis, de-risks your business and enables you to increase productivity. The role of the adviser is enhanced, not diminished because we work directly with our adviser partners, but don’t need to meet their clients. Ultimately though, the real measure of a successful partnership is delivering better investor outcomes.
The most obvious benefit of working with PortfolioMetrix is the opportunity to significantly enhance investment outcomes. This doesn’t just mean the potential to generate superior returns, but also to increase portfolio robustness through a rigorous, well-engineered process. Consistent risk-adjusted returns, compounded over the life of a portfolio, significantly reduces shortfall risk and increases investor well-being.
PortfolioMetrix uses a number of different investment techniques to augment expected portfolio returns but rejects the use of methodologies, regardless of their popularity, that have been shown to add little benefit or that risk destroying value. PortfolioMetrix specialises in asset allocation, fund selection, portfolio construction and rebalancing, all of which contribute towards the end result of more money in the client’s pocket.
PMX Select models incorporate ESG integration, the funds we select to be in the portfolios need to demonstrate that they take Environmental, Social and Governance into account in the companies that they invest in. The aim of these portfolios is to achieve the maximum risk adjusted returns over the long-term for the client and it makes sense that in order to do so they should invest in companies with good governance which have good environmental and social policies. At the moment that does entail investing in some energy companies, but we would expect these investments to reduce over time as the world transitions away from fossil fuels more towards renewables.

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:
These documents - and much more - can be accessed through: www.pbportfoliomanagement.co.uk
It's Good to Talk
We want to help- so please do not hesitate to get in touch.

We look forward to hearing from you.
Price Bailey Portfolio Management is a service and trading style of PB Financial Planning Ltd.
PB Financial Planning Ltd is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) under their reference 210782.
What we do
We provide independent, discretionary investment management services to high net worth private clients and their related entities.
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.

Rivers Capital Management was founded by a team of experienced multi and single asset portfolio managers. The employee owned business was founded on the belief that individual client needs are best served by separating personalised financial planning and advice from investment management.
Having individually managed model portfolios via platforms since 2011 and similar multi-asset solutions since 2000 the directors have developed a robust investment process with an excellent track record for providing risk adjusted returns.
OUR INVESTMENT APPROACH:
As experienced investors we approach investing in as dynamic and as flexible a way as is possible while remaining both transparent and consistent. Consistency of return is our primary objective. We have developed a unique investment process which is tailored specifically for investment advisers and their clients.
We offer a generic set of risk rated model portfolio solutions. These solutions if necessary can be further tailored based on cost or objective.
We adopt a dynamic approach to risk as well as active and passive fund allocation. Our research shows this maximises efficiency and lowers overall costs.
We are independent, accessible only to advisors and provide no direct client solutions or individual funds. All the portfolios we manage follow the same ‘Rivers’ investment process:
Long-Term Strategic Allocation
..using the Rivers proprietary risk categorisation system.
Active Tactical Allocation
..by experienced portfolio managers using the Rivers risk matrix.
Flexible Active/Passive Allocation
..where active management allocation varies according to market opportunity.
Unbiased Independent Fund Selection
..optimised for tailored objectives and platform availability.
On-going Risk Management
..targeting long term consistent returns over short term performance.
OUR INVESTMENT PRINCIPLES:

Eduardo Tomacelli – Founder and Portfolio Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Mark Hill-Reid – Sales and Business Development (email@example.com)
Najib El-Rayyes – Analyst and Portfolio Support (firstname.lastname@example.org)
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 platform. 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.

At Sanlam we take a ‘destination approach’ to investing. This means we are highly focused on helping people meet their real-world goals. Partnering with Sanlam gives you access to the experience and expertise of all our investment professionals, including award-winning fund managers and strong investment team, with an international reach and perspective.
Our range of model portfolio strategies, Active, Index and Socially Responsible Investment (SRI), are designed to suit a variety of client needs and objectives. The portfolios give your clients access to our carefully designed risk framework which, in turn, affords them exposure to global markets through diversified asset classes, regions and investment styles. The portfolios are constructed from whole of market multi-manager funds.
Each of the models is graded according to the desired amount of risk which you have pre-agreed with your clients. With risk at the heart of everything we do, our starting point is not to maximise returns at whatever cost, but to produce the most appropriate risk-adjusted returns.
Why invest in Sanlam model portfolios?
Established in 2010, and with our suite of investment solutions expanded to factor in both low-cost and socially responsible considerations, our overriding aim is to ensure reliability of returns. We believe the following features help us to do this:
• Portfolio outcomes are not based on where we think financial markets will be in any given time but the result of a bottom-up disciplined risk framework
• We do not ‘time’ financial markets. Rather, value is added by the dialling up or down of risk and making sure we choose the appropriate third-party managers for our models
• We place great emphasis on the blending and construction of our portfolios. In so doing, we aim to mitigate exposure to any one sector, style or geographical region
The Sanlam model portfolio range – Active, Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) and Index models
Our range of strategies operate within a clearly defined risk framework, ensuring that the return profile is consistent with your clients’ expectations.
Boutique ethos, global reach
Our close-knit Collectives team apply a team-based approach to managing portfolios and have a combined industry experience of over 60 years. They also enjoy access to a wide range of research resources. Not only do they form an integral part of the Sanlam multi-asset team, with constant access to the expert views of the equity, bond, and alternatives teams but they also benefit from regular meetings with third-party managers.
The extensive research undertaken is all designed to improve and enhance your clients’ investment outcomes. Overall, strategic and tactical asset allocation is set by the investment committee and subsequently reflected across all our model portfolios.
Nevertheless, the fact that both investment managers and analysts work collaboratively together on one floor, means discussion and sharing of ideas across the entire investment team is a part of our day-to-day culture. While the house asset allocation view is reflected across our range of Active, SRI, and Index models, the Collectives team interpret these in a way which is deemed appropriate for their overall portfolio construction.
Any adjustments to the portfolios are carried out on a quarterly basis, although these may be sooner in the event of extreme market movements. Formal meetings and processes are in place to ensure financial information is reviewed and analysed in a consistent, repeatable way designed to improve and enhance your clients’ investment outcomes.
Our overriding philosophy is to generate the best possible long-term returns for your clients within a specified risk framework.
More specifically, we apply the following philosophy to all our portfolios:
• Modern Portfolio Theory shows that by blending assets that perform differently, enhanced risk-reward outcomes can be achieved
• Index models reflect this philosophy, utilising lower-cost funds
• Active and SRI models take it one step further utilising the fact that assets within a class can and do perform differently – value, growth and quality equities, for example
• The SRI models introduce the added dimension of requiring underlying funds to have a socially responsible approach

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.

At SCM Private we believe we are unique in combining academic research with years of practical experience. Our aim is to be a force for good in British fund management by being innovative, honest and never forgetting the human face of looking after other people's money.
We are cautious, principled and methodical, and as the founders have significant sums of their own money invested on exactly the same fees and terms as clients, we are never tempted to gamble or take excessive risks.
No fund manager has a crystal ball or can predict what markets will do, but there are three elements that we balance to ensure clients receive the best possible investment outcomes. We call this the Power of Three.
COST - It is widely accepted that costs have the biggest negative impact on what investors get back in their pockets. So we charge fair fees that are 100% transparent.
RISK - Diversify, diversify, diversify so we don't have all our eggs in one basket, which helps us reduce risk and volatility.
RETURNS - We aim to be Steady Eddies whose mantra is seeking consistent performance year after year.
We are passionate about what we do and always treat our clients with respect. We never forget the trust people place in us when handing over their money, and put our money where our mouth is by investing significant funds in all SCM portfolios, on exactly the same terms and fees.
SCM Private has no external shareholders, commercial interest or conflicts of interest so we are never tempted or pressured into acting against the best interests of our clients.
Transparency has become a buzzword in so many areas - business, media, and government, but much of it lacks authenticity when you look beyond the words to the actions.
By having three portfolios, 100% transparency on all our fees and holdings, and explaining all that we do in our business and why - we have no place to hide. We are humble enough to accept when we are wrong, and strong enough to change when necessary.
Manifesto for Business
Success comes from our clients' belief in our proposition, trust in our decisions and satisfaction with our investment performance. With an independent mindset and pioneering spirit, we are not afraid to challenge the status quo, and operate with the following principles:
Profit for Purpose
SCM Private are as passionate about giving back as they are about helping investors. They believe the SCM cornerstones of Cost, Risk and Return can be applied to their charitable giving.
Cost - in terms of understanding how much of every pound given goes to the charitable works.
Risk - unlike our investment approach, we are not risk averse and support innovative small charities and projects that seek to support the most vulnerable in society.
Return - rather than burdensome impact measurements, we take a pulse and agree key performance indicators to judge whether those we support are transforming lives and communities. A significant proportion of any profits earned by SCM Private will be donated to Miller Philanthropy.

7IM was launched in 2002 and now manages over £11 billion in client assets (April 2017). 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 risk tolerances set through our long-established asset allocation process, our Investment Management team chooses 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 similar approach to managing money as that used for the 7IM Asset Allocated Passive (AAP) Funds. This process consists of a strategic (backward looking) analysis, combined with a tactical (forward looking) view, and the resultant asset allocation is fulfilled with low cost passive and smart passive instruments, with due diligence carried out by 7IM.
The models are:
These are the charges for the 7IM Model Portfolios:
- 0.25% (+VAT) per annum.
- The ongoing charges figure of the underlying passive instruments ranges between 0.2% and 0.4% depending on risk profile.
- 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% + VAT 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 2017 for our Model Portfolio Service. In 2013 we won the Best Outsourced Investment Solution for Advisers at Professional Adviser Awards, and in 2015, we won Best Discretionary Fund Manager at the Investment Life & Pensions Moneyfacts Awards, as well as the award for Best Steady Growth Portfolio and Best Overall Large Firm at the Citywire Wealth Manager Performance Awards 2015. We hope to be able to demonstrate to you why financial advisers who use us keep coming back.
The benefits of investing in our Model Portfolio Service are:

Introducing Tavistock Wealth
Tavistock Wealth aim to provide retail clients with access to institutional quality portfolio management. We do this by partnering up with the most successful risk manager in our industry, BlackRock.
We run a core set of in-house funds called the ACUMEN Portfolios. The ACUMEN Portfolios cater for the varying risk appetite of different investors. This is done primarily by partnering up with the market leading provider of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs): iShares by BlackRock.
We blend our ACUMEN Portfolios together to create the Tavistock PROFILES. These are model portfolios which target specific volatility parameters and are constantly monitored by our analysts, ensuring strict adherence to the criteria set by the Tavistock Wealth Investment Committee.
The Tavistock PROFILES cater for clients wishing to invest in risk profiles 3-8. Tavistock Wealth operate with a key focus on risk management ensuring our Tavistock PROFILES (model portfolios) operate within defined volatility parameters.
The Tavistock PROFILES allocate across nine primary asset classes – Government Bonds, Corporate Bonds, Inflation-Linked Bonds, Emerging Market Bonds, Developed Market Equities, Emerging Market Equities, Commodity Equities, Property Equities and Cash.
All Tavistock PROFILES are re-balanced centrally by the Tavistock Wealth investment team. Re-balances take place approximately once per quarter.

An Introduction to TCF Investment
TCF Investment started over a decade ago, with the aim of creating a totally customer focused investment business. Frustrated with an over-priced, over-complicated industry, that is more concerned with pushing product than looking after people’s money, we set out to create something different.
We brought together experts from across the industry that shared our passion to deliver straight forward, reliable, evidence-based solutions.
Our services are designed to meet the needs of advisers’ customers, our business is designed to make advisers’ lives easier.
With five different risk profiles to choose from it is easy to align one of the MAPS portfolios with your clients’ investment requirement (as driven by your assessment of attitude to risk and capacity for loss etc.). After that important step is completed, we take care of all the switching, rebalancing and fund selection. This keeps the portfolio approximately in-line with a selected asset allocation and maintains a wide range of underlying fund managers drawn from the whole market.
You can choose fully passive or core and satellite (passive and active) models.
TCF investment has grown due to the strength of our adviser relationships. Our unique service-led approach means that all advisers have a direct line to our CEO, unlike most of our competitors. We work with all our partners individually and offer tailored support to make them look good and their customers satisfied.
Our low cost, Multi-Asset Portfolio Solutions (MAPS), deliver what they promise. Our solutions are well diversified, rigorously selected and our investment performance speaks for itself.
The portfolios are an excellent solution for:
A simple but comprehensive range of 10 model portfolios: 5 risk profiles each with the option of two investment styles – passive or core & satellite (a blend of passive and active funds (active funds proposed by RSMR)).
We also offer the facility to design and manage portfolios to the advice firm’s specification. Contact us for more information.
What are your fees?
Passive models: 0.25% pa plus VAT. Total portfolio costs c. 0.40% pa.
Core and satellite models: 0.35% plus VAT. Total portfolio costs between c. 0.70% and c. 0.95% pa.

Thorntons Investments provides discretionary investment services to financial advisers, private clients, charities and trusts. This includes our Managed Portfolio Service, Discretionary Portfolio Management and our AIM Inheritance Tax Portfolio Service.
Managed Portfolio Service (MPS)
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 managed 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 portfolio 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 MPS charges
All model portfolios 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 portfolio is:
Thorntons Cautious Model 0.63%
Thorntons Steady Model 0.61%
Thorntons Moderate Model 0.58%
Thorntons Progressive Model 0.53%
Thorntons Adventurous Model 0.49%

TIDEWAY HORIZON PORTFOLIOS
Tideway’s Horizon approach allocates capital based on the time horizon, risk appetite and use of funds. Because different assets have different return and risk characteristics it is important to match investments with the expected holding period.
Money earmarked for use in the next five years is allocated to Horizon One assets which are stable, secure, low volatility investments such as short dated corporate bonds and cash. Horizon One assets are selected to target real returns of 2% p.a.
Horizon Two capital is invested for five to ten years across a selection of Absolute Return Funds and bonds (including hybrid capital). Horizon Two assets aim to deliver real returns of 3-5 % p.a.
Assets with the highest volatility and long term expected return are allocated to Horizon Three. Horizon three assets are selected on the basis of being held for at least ten years and include single name equities, long only equity funds and long dated corporate bonds (including hybrid capital) Horizon Three assets are chosen to deliver real returns of 4-6% p.a.
HORIZON PORTFOLIOS IN PRACTICE
Tideway Horizon Portfolios are concentrated in high conviction research-driven ideas and use a unique framework which allocates capital according to time horizon, risk appetite and use of funds.
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 de-accumulate and make withdrawals (selling on weakness).
TAKING OUT INCOME AND CAPITAL
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 portfolios can saved to meet unexpected cash needs or where there is no requirement for cash the income can be reinvested and returns will compound.
Whatever your time horizon or risk appetite, Tideway has developed a comprehensive set of Horizon Portfolios to cater for your investment requirements:

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. Central to our investment philosophy is the understanding that clients are particularly sensitive to losses rather than necessarily being adverse to investment risk.
The core beliefs our investment philosophy are:
• To achieve returns ahead of cash and inflation
• Understand risks taken and particularly the risk of capital loss
• 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

Model Portfolio Service
Each portfolio comprises a diversified range of funds with daily liquidity and the portfolios are rebalanced on a regular quarterly basis, or more frequently if required. We emphasise capital preservation and aim to achieve specific target returns on a rolling three-year basis net of charges, rather than matching a particular index or a fixed asset allocation. We believe this is easier to explain to clients than some of the more complex benchmarks that are used. Our management charge is 0.375% plus VAT.
Our investment approach is to use experience, hard work and common sense in the analysis of economies, markets, sectors, shares and funds. We invest over the long-term while being flexible in the shorter-term and we focus on investments that can provide resilience at times of market weakness. The portfolio uses collective funds whose broad remit serves to diversify risk and we have a diversified range of holdings – our policy is to invest no more than 5% into a single fund (with the exception of money markets). We have a significant allocation to alternative assets such as commodities, property and total return funds to offset potential market volatility. We are willing to hold substantial amounts of cash in portfolios if circumstances dictate.
We enjoy communicating with advisers on how we manage our portfolios, as we do with our own discretionary clients.

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.

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.
The Wellian Ethical portfolio invests in a range of ethically managed funds allowing investors to combine both ethical and environmental considerations into a single investment strategy. We adopt a broad ethical stance when selecting funds for our portfolio. The managers we select will either invest ethically and focus on avoiding investing in companies involved in activities believed to be harmful, e.g. armaments, gambling and tobacco, or be socially responsible investors, actively seeking out firms which make a positive contribution to society. The funds we select vary in both their ethical stance and in the methods they choose to implement this stance. In some cases this may mean that we are investing into funds where the level of ethical restrictions they impose may range from “light green” to “dark green”. This gives us a diverse portfolio and access to the widest range of ethical managers available.
