Money Portal teams up with Barrie and Hibbert

Money Portal is to use Barrie and Hibbert as an investment advice partner to provide risk-profiled asset allocations to its clients.

The partnership will give Money Portal direct access to Barrie and Hibbert’s modelling capability and its asset allocation framework will be integrated with Money Portal’s online fact-find.

Money Portal chief operating officer Andrew Firth says: “We are determined to ensure that those of our advisers who offer investment advice are backed up with appropriate asset allocations for identified client risk profiles.

“Barrie and Hibbert are recognised experts in this field and by engaging with them we are able to deliver customised outcomes which eliminate the potential risk of the bias associated with many provider-sponsored asset allocation tools.”

We believe that Money Portal advisers will benefit from the rigorous and independent approach we bring to the construction of bespoke asset allocations.”
