We use the analysis of your risk profile, time horizon, circumstances, goals and objectives to construct a customised investment portfolio for you, our client. The portfolios use a structured-passive investing approach (or asset class investing) which means they are constructed to reliably target returns in specific asset classes- groups of securities that share common risk and return characteristics. There is no forecasting of market or economic conditions involved and no attempt is made to pick individual stocks.
We recommend wholesale managed funds that are generally not available to the public.
Wholesale managed funds allow us to obtain diversification that would otherwise not be achieved through investing in equity and fixed interest securities directly. As they are large in scale and do not deal with the public, their management fees are considerably lower than retail managed funds. Costs are also lower because the funds are passive in nature, meaning less investment analysts and infrequent training.
The Boutique Independent custodian
The Boutique Advisers Alliance Platform is a tailored custodial wrap service, or investment platform, designed to provide electronic investment administration for independent financial advisers and their clients. The platform has been formed specifically for the New Zealand market and provides investment administration and an enhanced overview of investment in one place. The platform is managed by FNZ, who partners with major financial institutions to enable them to provide high level wealth management services and solutions to their clients.
Portfolios are reviewed and rebalanced at least on a six-monthly basis to ensure they continue to meet strategic benchmarks and remain in line with your risk tolerance and longer term objective.
