In a world cluttered with complexity and choice we embrace the following guiding principles:
What We Offer for You
We are not naïve in believing that we can consistently pick the best managers all the time, nor would it be our intention to do so. This approach has far more to do with luck than it does skill.
What we do however is apply our minds to that which has the highest level of probability of meeting a client’s needs over time.
We invest for the long term
We offer solutions designed to stand the test of time.
We are independent
We don’t play favorites and stay away from yesterday’s heroes.
Get the big decisions right
Asset allocation is the primary driver of both investment performance and risk.
Picking and blending the most appropriate managers to get the job done.
We eat our own cooking
This properly aligns our interests with our clients ensuring that we only offer strategies in which we have the highest levels of confidence.
Whilst we believe in the concept of value over price, we constantly look at ways of driving costs down in the value chain.
Why Model Portfolios?
We have elected to partner with Morningstar Investment Management and together we have established a range of investment portfolios that will facilitate the active management of our clients’ portfolios. This follows a strict process whereby investments are managed by an Investment Committee of specialists with proven track records. In their selection of unit trusts, the investment committee aims to achieve an appropriate degree of diversification while combining the investment expertise of quality investment managers.
All portfolios are subjected to rigorous qualitative and quantitative analysis when selecting underlying unit trust funds. The portfolios are managed to meet the needs of end-investors while taking the investment landscape into account.
Model portfolios provide you with many benefits in terms of flexibility, liquidity and transparency.
We negotiate reduced fees on the underlying funds where possible to ensure that our clients benefit from cost-effective portfolios.
