A dedicated partner for your investments
Your investment team starts by establishing your needs. As a starting point, we familiarize ourselves with your:
- Circumstances, investment requirements and the most suitable reference currency for your portfolio
- Any other tax or legal requirements, working closely with your advisors
- Your attitude to risk, to determine the most appropriate asset allocation for your investments
How we construct portfolios
Based on your attitude to risk, we offer a selection of portfolio styles with different equity weightings to encompass a wide range of risk-return preferences.
We consider a wide range of asset classes when constructing portfolios, ensuring that yours is appropriately diversified. We actively manage each portfolio’s asset allocation in a range around the agreed ‘neutral’ position, holding more of the assets we expect to perform well in the current market environment. This flexibility allows us to take advantage of opportunities and to protect the portfolio at any given time.
We are also able to tailor portfolios to cater for other considerations, such as ethical restrictions.
How we work with your advisors
We work alongside your dedicated advisors for legal, financial, tax and estate planning matters in various jurisdictions, to ensure that your investments with Sarasin complement your overall portfolio and risk profile.
