How are the 

Funds Managed?

Our team of investment specialists actively manage and closely monitor the asset allocation of the Personal Portfolio Funds. Their goal is to maximise the fund returns while ensuring the right level of risk is employed.

Each fund taps into the extensive expertise of the investment team at Coutts. From our house view and market preferences through to the selection of individual passive funds that track bond or stock markets in our chosen asset classes.

Coutts adopts five core investment principles – our roadmap for managing your investments - which are:

Macro-informed asset allocation

We believe this is a key driver of returns over the long term.

Value and selectively contrarian

We look for assets that are inexpensive and may be unpopular and out of favour. 

Diversification

Essential to broaden sources of return and manage risk in a robust way.

Quality

We seek well-managed and stable institutions.

Patience

We focus on long-term opportunities and do not over react to short-term noise.

The right mix

The Personal Portfolio Funds provide exposure to three key asset classes:

  • Equities – shares in companies quoted on stock markets in the UK and overseas. We gain exposure to different markets through passive funds that track shares across equity markets such as the UK, Europe, the US, Japan and emerging markets. Equities provide a greater potential for growth than bonds, but carry a greater chance of losses. PPF 5, the higher risk fund, will have an allocation of at least 90% to equities.
  • Bonds – through a basket of UK government bonds – or gilts – or by investing in passive funds that track markets in fixed and variable interest-bearing investments. These include gilts, corporate bonds and emerging market debt, which all carry different levels of risk. PPF 1, the lower risk fund, will have an allocation of at least 70% to bonds.
  • Cash – includes overnight deposits and short-dated money market investments. Funds will hold cash to make it easier to buy and sell investments, to cover redemptions and reduce risk in portfolios where appropriate.
