Working with you

For over 30 years we have been committed to providing investment management solutions to professional advisers and their clients in the UK and around the world.

By working closely with you, we ensure that our services support your role as trusted adviser and benefit your clients.

This dedication and expertise has led to a significant proportion of our assets under management being introduced through these relationships.

We partner with financial advisers looking to outsource the management of their clients’ investment portfolio to a specialist investment manager or in-source investment management expertise as part of their own centralised investment proposition.

Our aim is to work closely with you to support you in managing the assets within your clients’ portfolios, working hand in hand to deliver the very best financial solution for your clients.

We recognise that time is a valuable commodity and so everything we do is centred on helping you to provide a holistic financial planning service to your clients with you at the forefront of the relationship.

To do this, we provide you with:

  • Knowledge: Regular market and portfolio communications, including quarterly investment updates and conference calls.
  • Support: A broad range of adviser and client-facing literature including our highly regarded guide to risk and suitability as well as factsheets and sales aids.
  • Integration: Links to back-office administration and CRM systems such as Curo, Enable and Intelligent Office.
  • Access: Online reporting and access to client accounts via iOS and Android apps.
  • Strategic solutions: Centralised investment proposition (CIP) portfolio construction and implementation, legacy asset solutions and transition, risk-targeted portfolio management and grey labelling.

We understand the significance of providing the right information, in a timely manner, to enable accountants to give the best possible service to their clients.

The quality and clarity of our comprehensive reporting can help reduce the time and effort that you will spend on the necessary paperwork and administration.

Our consolidated tax report has been specifically designed to make life easier when it comes to completing tax returns or forming future tax plans. This report contains a schedule of:

  • All dividends, interest and other income accrued on your client’s Bordier UK account during the tax year.
  • Capital gains/losses made on your client’s Bordier UK account during the tax year.

We are also able to:

  • Produce ad-hoc realised and unrealised capital gains tax reports at any point of the tax year, as well as income schedules if required.
  • Arrange for tax bills to be settled directly with HMRC on behalf of your client, with no payment charge for the client.

We appreciate the many legal complexities faced by solicitors and their clients in today’s investment environment.

We have developed a range of services to meet these challenges and our investment managers have a wealth of experience in managing specialised investment portfolios with strict mandates such as:

  • Investments within a range of trust arrangements.
  • Bespoke portfolios for a range of clients that include international clients, resident nom-domicile, non-resident non-domicile, investor visa, QROPS investment management and offshore custody.
  • Court of Protection portfolios.
  • Charity investments.

Due diligence

We appreciate the extensive due diligence that you are required to undertake when selecting a suitable discretionary fund manager to manage your clients’ investments.

We have opened our business and services up to a selection of independent ratings providers, who have undertaken comprehensive reviews of our systems and processes.

We are also able to provide comprehensive answers to any questions you may have during your due diligence process, including in-depth information into our services and details of the key aspects of our business.

Please contact a member of our business development team for more information. Alternatively, you can email sales@bordieruk.com or call 020 7667 6600.

We have been awarded the 2020 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 six consecutive years.

A copy of our ARC Suggestus 3D Due Diligence Questionnaire can be downloaded from the ARC Suggestus website.

We have received and retained the maximum Defaqto 5 Star Rating for our Wealth Management Service, Managed Portfolio Service and Platform Managed Portfolio Service over the last nine years – one of only three discretionary fund managers to achieve the top rating in three DFM categories during the 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.

Third-party relationships

We have established strong relationships with many third-party providers over the years, including fund houses, platforms and back-office administration and CRM systems.

These relationships allow us to provide you and your clients with the:

  • Best investments and research from the some of the biggest and smallest names in the fund management industry.
  • Flexibility to access our investment propositions via different platforms and wrappers.
  • Efficiency of management and award-winning client servicing and reporting.
  • Considerable benefits of continuity and stability.

We integrate with back-office administration and CRM systems to assist you in the holistic management of your clients’ portfolios.

The ability to feed client portfolio data, either via web portal or secure FTP, directly to your systems can help reduce administrative costs and facilitates the monitoring of portfolio performance and activity.

We currently work with the following back-office administration and CRM systems:

  • Curo
  • Enable
  • Intelligent Office

We are open to working with your chosen supplier should we not already have links with them.

Many professional advisers choose to use wraps and platforms at the heart of their business to simplify administration and improve efficiency. In recognition of this, we have steadily grown the number of third parties through which our services are available and are looking to grow this further.

We also have active relationships with a broad selection of SIPP and offshore bond providers.
