Model Portfolio Service

Proven investment expertise for more of your clients

The Model Portfolio Service

What is the Model Portfolio Service?

MPS is a discretionary investment management service that consists of six risk-profiled portfolios, each aiming to deliver strong risk-adjusted returns, for advisers with clients with assets of £50,000+ to invest

Who is it for?

Advisers looking to outsource investment management in a platform environment, servicing clients who may not need a bespoke service as it would not be cost-effective

Why Cazenove Capital?

Our dedicated DFM team have been working with advisers for 15 years to tailor an award-winning multi-asset investment approach, drawing on the depth of investment research of the Schroder Group as well as external specialists

Our approach

We are focused on preserving and growing the value of your clients' wealth after inflation, in a tax and cost-efficient manner. Our investment philosophy is underpinned by two key factors: an understanding of the business cycle and its impact on different asset classes and underlying investments, as well as a strong belief in the merits of diversification.
Portfolio construction

Our specialist investment team construct portfolios with the aim of delivering strong risk-adjusted returns, drawing on research from the wider Schroder Group and external investment community

Risk monitoring

We construct optimal asset allocations for the models based on our in-house strategic asset allocation aligned to six risk categories. These are independently risk rated by Distribution Technology

Portfolio rebalancing

Our model portfolios are rebalanced in conjunction with our changing investment views. They are altered as appropriate to mitigate portfolio drift and remain consistent with strategy and asset allocation parameters
