Optimum Investment Management (OIM) Service
Optimum recognises that no single fund house has a monopoly on investment expertise, and fund managers from different fund houses demonstrate greater or lesser performance success in alternative asset classes. Consequently our risk-rated portfolios are constructed by utilising a combination of leading edge software technology and our own experience & expertise in order to select fund managers who are demonstrating the greatest success in the various asset classes, and also ensuring that funds meet the high criteria standards that we impose on them.
Our investment team meets on a monthly basis to review portfolio performance, asset allocations, fund selection and investment volatility to ensure portfolios are maintained at an optimum level.
Clients investment portfolios are held safely and individually on a Wrap Platform. By using an investment Wrap Platform, individual clients, holding risk managed diversified investments from a wide range of fund managers, can benefit from the lowest possible fund charges that were previously only available to large institutional investors. Optimum conducts regular due-diligence into the Wrap Platforms that we recommend and our clients can also benefit from lower platform charges that we may be able to negotiate due to the amount of funds we manage on our clients behalf.
