Asset Risk Consultants
We have been awarded the 2022 Suggestus 3D Award from Asset Risk Consultants (ARC) due to our ongoing commitment to transparency, engagement and integrity.
The award confirms our dedication to providing the highest standards of service and investment management solutions to our clients in a completely transparent and honest manner. In addition, the award enables private clients, professional advisers, charities and wealth management professionals to identify investment managers that have demonstrated a superior standard of transparency and engagement. We have received the ARC 3D Award for eight consecutive years.
A copy of our ARC Suggestus 3D Due Diligence Questionnaire can be downloaded from the ARC Suggestus website.
We have achieved and retained the maximum Defaqto 5 Star Ratings for our Wealth Management Service and Managed Portfolio Service for the tenth consecutive year, whilst our Platform Managed Portfolio Service has been 5 Star Rated since the inception of Defaqto’s DFM MPS on Platform Rating category in 2014. We are one of only three discretionary fund managers (DFMs) to achieve the top rating in three DFM categories during this period.
Defaqto Star Ratings provide an independent assessment of products and service propositions based on the level of features and benefits they offer, combined with relevant provider information – giving each a rating of 1 to 5 to indicate where they are positioned in the market. A 5 Star Rating indicates that a proposition has one of the best quality service offerings in the market, based on the firm’s commitment to the adviser market, the way the proposition is structured and the flexibility it offers.
