Investment Management

INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT PROCESS

Our disciplined investment process allows us to build our portfolios in line with our investment principles and our client’s financial goals, summarised in the below 4 steps:

Portfolio construction represents a blend of client-driven factors and market-driven factors, which determine asset allocation. This process results in a bespoke portfolio for the client.
Given that the world is ever-changing, investment management is a continuous process requiring constant monitoring. As such, every portfolio is individually monitored and rebalanced in order to maintain an investor’s risk/return profile as well as effectively controlling portfolio risk over time.
