Objective: The portfolio aims to achieve returns in excess of UK CPI + 7% p.a. over rolling six year periods. Over any three year rolling period the portfolio should always deliver a positive return. Portfolio returns will be generated through interest income, dividend income and capital growth.
Strategy: The portfolio benchmark is the MSCI ACWI NR GBP.The portfolio is a multi-manager portfolio ideally comprising of at least two underlying funds and not more than six. Fund selection will be bias towards high Sortino ratios, low downside standard deviation and to managers and funds that have successfully navigated sustained negative market conditions. Where possible, underlying funds will be given as many of the asset allocation decisions as possible. Underlying investments will be held in multiple first world currencies. However, all performance and risk statistics will be in GBP.
