Building Blocks

Key to managing risk

When designing a diversified portfolio, the skill is finding the right blend of funds. It is a real advantage if you also control the investment decisions in the underlying funds as it means you have end to end control over the decisions that ultimately drive performance and volatility, by which we mean the upward and downward movements in the value of a portfolio. 

It is for this reason we have our own range of funds, which form the basis of our portfolios. Each fund has a specific purpose, which makes them ideally suited to address different investment objectives. For those investors most focused on capital preservation we can increase allocations to our Tenax Absolute Return Strategies Fund while those with a longer investment time horizon will likely benefit from more exposure to UK Equity Growth and Esk Global Equity funds.
