Smartim manages a range of multi-asset multi-currency portfolios, available in GBP, USD and EUR, that can be white-labeled and mapped to your risk profiler or client base. 

Assets can include equities, property, fixed interest, absolute return and cash. The higher ratio of equities entails more risk in a portfolio, and higher potential gains. This chart illustrates the indicative asset allocations for each risk profile.

Smartgrowth Portfolios

The Smartgrowth range of portfolios consists of 11 risk-graded portfolios which are designed to deliver a consistent total return commensurate to the level of risk of each portfolio.

Objective

To achieve a consistent total return for a given risk profile over the longer term with a focus on preserving capital as well as maximising performance; suitable for clients prepared to invest for a minimum of 5 years who can accept capital value fluctuations in the short to medium term to achieve a higher rate of return over the longer term.

Philosophy

The Smartim investment philosophy is based on the fundamental belief that portfolios should be constructed to deliver consistent risk-adjusted returns and portfolios should be managed within a defined acceptable level of risk with a focus on preserving capital and limiting losses. Smartim are advocates of the power of compounding, where earnings generate even more earnings. Smartim believes that this conservative approach to investing, with a focus on limiting drawdowns and compounding returns, will deliver superior performance over the medium term to long term.

Strategy

The portfolio uses a multi-asset approach, primarily investing in investment funds to provide exposure to a wide range of asset classes which can include equities, fixed interest, property, commodities, alternatives and cash. This is expected to provide more consistent, risk-adjusted returns over the longer term than a strategy based on a single asset class.
