Eden Park Managed Portfolio Service (MPS)

The Managed Portfolio Service has been designed exclusively for clients of financial advisers and allows financial advisers to focus on what’s important, advising you about your financial planning needs.

MPS Overview

With MPS the client relationships always belong to the adviser. The adviser will work with you to decide which investment strategy and portfolio is right for you and monitor the portfolio's ongoing suitability.

The MPS is an investment management service comprised of five actively managed investment portfolios and five actively passive investment portfolios that differ in their investment objectives and risk profiles.

EPIM works with financial advisers to run portfolios on the adviser and their clients’ behalf.

Cautious – Low Risk

For clients who place a higher priority on preserving the value of their investments over investment returns. Typically, the client will be sensitive to large negative movements in the value of the investment. The client is looking to maintain the real value of their investments against inflation and is happy to accept a small degree of fluctuation in the value of your portfolio to achieve this. As a result, the portfolio will hold a greater proportion in lower risk asset classes, such as cash, fixed income and alternatives, relative to the higher risk asset class of equities.

Income – Low / Medium Risk

The client will be looking to maintain the real value of their investments by achieving returns above inflation. Preserving the value of their investments remains important, but the client is willing to accept short-term volatility to generate potentially higher long-term investment returns. The portfolio will be more evenly balanced between equities and the combined asset classes of cash, fixed interest and alternatives.

Balanced – Medium Risk

The client is prepared to have a greater proportion of their investment held in equities with the aim of achieving a higher investment return over the long-term. The greater allocation to equities means the portfolio may experience heightened levels of volatility over the investment term. The portfolio will typically include two thirds of the assets invested in equities whilst the remainder will be split between cash, fixed income and alternatives. The client is prepared to accept fluctuations in the value of the portfolio to achieve their investment goals.

Growth – Medium / High Risk

The client is seeking to generate higher investment returns through an increased exposure to equities to help achieve long-term investment goals. The portfolio will typically have a very high proportion invested in equities and very low levels of fixed income, cash and alternative asset classes. A larger proportion invested in equities is likely to lead to increased volatility in the overall value of the portfolio

Global Equity – High Risk

For clients looking to maximise their investment returns by having a portfolio invested almost entirely in equities. Significant levels of volatility and more frequent changes in the value of the investments can be expected, the client will be willing to accept these risks to achieve investment goal.

Cautious – Low Risk

The portfolio will hold a greater proportion in lower risk asset classes, such as cash and bonds.

Moderately Cautions – Low / Medium Risk

The performance of the model portfolio is not intended to track the rise (or fall) of any specific index. The portfolio will be more evenly balanced between equities, bonds and alternatives.

Balanced – Medium Risk

Growth – Medium / High Risk

The performance of the model portfolio is not intended to track the rise (or fall) of any specific index. The portfolio will typically include two thirds of the assets invested in equities whilst the remainder will be split between cash, bonds and alternatives. A larger proportion invested in equities is likely to lead to increased volatility in the overall value of the portfolio.

Global Equity – High Risk

The investment objective is to provide a long-term total return which is superior to inflation plus 4% returns.

Significant levels of volatility and more frequent changes in the value of the investments can be expected, the client will be willing to accept these risks to achieve investment goal.

EPIM Sustainable Range

EPIM Sustainable Overview

The EPIM Sustainable range is an actively managed portfolio service incorporating environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) factors in investment decisions.

The ultimate goal of the portfolios is to support both socio-economic development and sustainable business practices, whilst generating strong and consistent investment returns. The portfolios will aim to achieve this by investing in a diversified range of funds, which include themes such as renewable energy, financial inclusion, education, social housing, climate change action, sustainable waste management and renewable material production.

The Sustainable Model Portfolio Service comprises five risk-rated portfolios, which have three targets assigned to each. These three targets are volatility, annualised return and maximum loss, allowing you to understand the risk/reward that we are expecting with each portfolio.

On a regular basis, the asset allocation for the portfolios will change to reflect our the monthly market views. Additional risk analysis and dedicated asset allocation research is also fed into the portfolio’s construction process by a team of LGT Vestra investment managers. This means the portfolios benefit from the most current investment thinking and our best ideas through dynamic portfolio construction.
