Strategic Asset Allocation

We use a sophisticated asset allocation framework from our asset consultants that combines market data and their in-house research to simulate 5,000 scenarios for each asset classes for every year forecasted and this delivers an effective outcome for each risk profile. Your adviser will customise this strategic asset allocation for your specific needs.

Fund Manager Research

We believe that it is prudent to avoid selecting managers based purely on their past performance. As a result, our manager research is based on detailed analysis that goes far beyond a simple review of performance. The research prioritises investment opportunities with a strong process as this increases the likelihood of investment success in the future.

When researching funds we review key elements of the investment process and our investment consultants conduct interviews with key people responsible for investment decisions.
