  • Active management of asset allocation: Our investment experts use the insights from our Investment Futures Framework to adjust the asset allocation within each of the portfolios to control potential risks and capture return opportunities.
  • Access to some of the world’s leading investment managers: Using our deep proprietary research we select specialist investment managers from around the world and carefully blend them in the one portfolio.

Valuable practice
efficiencies supported
by expertise

To build your business and
put you back in front of clients


  • Our investment experts are responsible for asset allocation and manager selection within the portfolios and continuously monitor them, making changes when needed, while being mindful of transaction costs. It’s much easier than managing individual stocks, funds, and other investments yourself.
  • This reduces the compliance and administrative burden on your practice, freeing up your time so you can get on with what’s important to you – servicing clients and building your practice.
