International Focus

The portfolios cater to an international client base seeking investment solutions which are accessible across different jurisdictions.



The portfolios are available in both USD and GBP denomination.


Sound Risk Management

The portfolios are risk-rated where risk is defined as “a permanent loss of capital that can’t be recovered in the investor’s timeframe”.

Why invest in the portfolios?

The portfolios are built for growth and tax efficiency*, holding assets only that are non-UK situs whilst leveraging Morningstar’s international footprint and heritage of manager and fund ratings and selection. We use a blended approach to maximise reward for risk, using both active and passive investment vehicles to access areas of high conviction.

How are the portfolios managed?

Whilst minimising costs is a core principle, our focus is on creating a diversified portfolio of quality investments bought at attractive prices. This is done by undertaking comprehensive research to understand the fundamental drivers behind each opportunity. We only invest where reward is worth the risk and seek out assets which are currently overlooked by other investors.

All categories include a mix of equity, fixed income, and cash/cash equivalents allocations. Cautious contains mostly fixed-income, whereas Adventurous is made up almost entirely of equities. Indicative asset allocations included for illustrative purposes only.

What are the portfolios invested in?

The portfolios are comprised primarily in passive funds, but will also have exposure to active funds if there is the potential for added value within the fee structure. The portfolio invests across a range of asset classes such as equities, fixed interest, and cash—where and when it makes sense to do so.
