Securing your financial future
Our Wealth Management team is dedicated to improving the financial position of individuals and trusts. We do this by holistic financial planning (looking at a client’s overall financial position and objectives). This combines strategies to minimise tax and provide quality investment advice whilst keeping total investment costs under control. We have an investment policy and process that is consistent across investment types including general portfolios, pensions and trust funds.
Our Investment Team
Our Investment Team is overseen by our Investment Director, Peter Heckingbottom and Investment Manager, Nick Pike. Peter and Nick are supported by a team of around 10 researchers. Their role is to analyse research produced by some of the best external fund assessment organisations (such as Old Broad Street Research – OBSR and Citywire). They then identify the funds and fund managers who have a consistent, established track record of superior past performance and who are most likely to maintain this in the future. These funds are identified on our “Buy Lists”.
Ongoing Investment Monitoring
Crucially, when we recommend funds to clients, we commit to continue monitoring these moving forward. If this monitoring process highlights any deficiencies in funds, our Investment Team will make a decision as to whether the fund should be retained or sold. We commit to contacting all clients investing in funds where we have concerns with a recommendation that actions be taken. This means that clients may see us recommending changes to their portfolios to ensure they remain invested in what we consider to be “Best of Breed” funds.
