Passive Model Portfolio Service

Our passive model portfolio service launched in 2015 on the Novia platform. The service has since been expanded and is now available on a number of different platforms:

  • Aviva
  • Ascentric
  • Novia
  • Standard Life
  • Transact

The passive model portfolios follow the same Brown Shipley active allocation strategy, but they contain ETFs and unit trusts where a fund manager passively follows a specific index by buying and selling the shares within it. Due to the fact that the portfolios are invested in index tracking vehicles the fees tend to be lower.

For more information on the Model Portfolio Service, please do not hesitate to contact us.
