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 longest established UK custodian and settlement companies with nearly $1 trillion in assets under administration. Pershing is a subsidiary of the Bank of New York Mellon which has more than $33 trillion in assets under custody. Pershing provides a comprehensive public indemnity policy to protect your clients against such events as fire, fraud or theft. Both Pershing and Hawksmoor are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.

You can find out more below about the different Portfolio Management Services we can offer for your clients.

Discretionary Portfolio Management Service

We can manage portfolios for a wide variety of your clients, including trusts and charities, investing directly or through specialist structures such as SIPPs, Offshore Insurance Bonds and ISAs.

Sustainable World Portfolio Management Service

If your clients are concerned about how companies they are invested in make their profits, or if they feel uneasy about benefiting from industries such as tobacco, alcohol and armaments, our Sustainable World Portfolio Management Service allows you to provide them with a potential solution.

Capstone Portfolio Management Service

Our Capstone Portfolio Management Service is a bespoke, discretionarily-managed service for clients with smaller portfolios (less than £100,000) where it is difficult to get a sufficiently diverse spread of sensibly sized holdings.

AIM Portfolio Service

Hawksmoor’s AIM Portfolio Service enables your clients to invest in growth opportunities among the UK smaller companies listed on the Alternative Investment Market, as well as to reduce their potential inheritance tax (IHT) liability.
