Investing your money mustn’t be difficult. In fact, it can be very simple and rewarding, provided you have a fair basis for all your investment decisions. We provide our clients with this basis in the form of research and analysis from whole of the market to help them develop a robust plan and take informed decisions.
Why have an investment plan?
Having no investment plan in place could prove more harmful than you think. A financial plan defines your objectives over a given period and gets you through the peaks and troughs common with financial markets.
We can provide clarity on your options taking into consideration a careful analysis of the market and inflation rates, we can offer the best advice for your savings and an investment plan that is right for you. We also ensure that your savings are invested in a tax efficient way and that you do not pay any more tax than is required.
How we do it?
The most important part of an investment strategy is to follow a rigorous and consistent process which will optimise the potential of your desired investment goals.
The first step is to identify the appropriate strategic asset allocation based on your agreed attitude to risk and capacity for loss.
This is arguably the most fundamental part of investment planning and forms the basis of our process. The next step is to research the funds/investments which will fit the asset allocation and follow a rigorous process which will help identify the most suitable investments. This will include the following (not an exhaustive list):
- Fund Sector
- Morningstar ratings
- Analyst ratings
- Fund volatility
- Fund manager tenure
- Fund charges
- Sharpe ratio
- Historical performance
