Barclays Wealth has set up five risk-rated model portfolios for advisers looking to outsource investment management.
The portfolios invest in a combination of active and passive funds across the nine asset classes and are available exclusively on the Ascentric platform.
They will invest across cash and short-dated maturity bonds, developed market government bonds, investment-grade bonds, high-yield and emerging market debt bonds, developed market equities, emerging market equities, commodities, real estate and alternative trading strategies. Minimum investment is £25,000. Annual management charge is 0.4 per cent plus VAT, which excludes dealing costs, plus a platform charge of 0.25 per cent.
Director of UK IFA distribution Bryan Parkinson says: “The notion that portfolios are constructed to meet a range of risk appetites is a compelling story.”
