Active Model Portfolio Service

Our active model portfolio service launched in 2010 on the Novia platform. Since then, the service has expended on to the Ascentric, Standard Life and Transact platforms and most recently on to the Aviva platform.

As active portfolios, they contain funds where a fund manager actively tries to outperform a specific index by buying and selling the shares within it. Due to the proactive approach of changing a fund’s weighting, our active portfolios can offer improved returns but charge higher fees.

Our model portfolios combine the Brown Shipley actively managed asset allocation strategy with active fund managers. Each portfolio’s exposure to equities varies from portfolio to portfolio, dependant on the risk profile of each one.
