The Managed Portfolio Service is delivered in conjunction with Marlborough and consists of five portfolios, each with their own risk profile and objective. The strategic asset allocation of these model portfolios is maintained in line with the respective Dynamic Planner risk profile providing diversified exposure to at least six asset classes. The Managed Portfolio Service strategy relies on the CleverEngine, a highly sophisticated software system that utilises proprietary data and complex computer algorithms to select and continually monitor funds.
