Portfolio Management Services
We are investment managers – not financial advisers
We provide top quality investment management services – but do not offer financial advice. Therefore there is no overlap or conflict with the services you provide to your clients.
We are ‘active’ managers
Depending on your clients’ attitudes to risk, requirements for income, tax situations and particular preferences, we will build and actively manage portfolios to match their individual needs, and incorporate existing investments wherever appropriate.
The investment manager (supported by an investment assistant and administration team) will closely monitor all your client portfolios and, using our disciplined and structured investment process, will ensure they are suitably invested at all times.
We stay in contact with you
At least once a year, a review meeting will take place to check that all portfolios are reflecting your clients’ needs. Outside of that review, you can always speak to the investment manager if you have any questions about your clients’ portfolios. The investment manager will also send quarterly investment reports, which include data showing the performance of portfolios relative to appropriate benchmarks.
We keep your clients’ money safe
Investments are held in a ring-fenced nominee account so we can deal with all the portfolio administration efficiently. This will include collecting and distributing dividends and other income payments, corporate actions and executing all trades promptly.
We outsource the safe custody of your clients’ investments to Pershing Securities, one of the most established UK custodian and settlement companies. Pershing Securities is a subsidiary of the Bank of New York Mellon which is the largest provider of custody services in the world. Pershing Securities provides a comprehensive public indemnity policy to protect your clients against such events as fire, fraud or theft. Both Pershing Securities and Hawksmoor are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (further details of which can be found at www.fscs.org.uk).
