OUR PORTFOLIO SOLUTIONS
We believe that there are no borders when searching for attractively valued investment opportunities. We have developed a robust global investment opportunity evaluation framework to reflect this. Our belief are that valuations are the best predictor of investment performance over the medium term to long term. We manage portfolios on a multi-management basis. By constructing and managing portfolios on a multi-manager approach we can improve the certainty of portfolio outcomes over the target investment horizon.
OUR DFM SERVICES
The relationship between the DFM, adviser, and client is of paramount importance in understanding the needs of the client. Our DFM service model offers portfolio management, portfolio reporting, and consolidated client reporting.
Why use a DFM
We appreciate that devoting sufficient time to your clients’ investments, both at the initial recommendation stage and in the ongoing monitoring of portfolios, is becoming increasingly difficult and time-consuming. Investment advice can be complex and a portfolio of great investments is not necessarily the same as a great portfolio. There are a plethora of funds to choose from in the marketplace, as well as more complex investments that may not be available to the retail market. Research takes time and an extensive amount of resources. Working with a discretionary fund manager (DFM) can be an ideal solution for advisers who are looking to outsource the day-to-day asset allocation and fund selection decisions, allowing more time to focus on your clients’ financial planning requirements.
Why a boutique DFM
A boutique approach allows for the development of a closer working relationship with advisers. The focus is on service, communication, and understanding. Accountability and decision-making within a boutique business focuses on what is important and connects the business more closely to the requirements and needs of both client and advisers as the underlying interests are aligned for all parties.
