ABOUT US

We aim to be disruptors in the market, focused on improving customer outcomes. We are Fintech enabled and adopt a risk first investment approach.

We are a new entrant to the Discretionary Fund Management market and work exclusively with the advice community – we don’t have in-house advisers or work directly with private clients.

The Alpha Beta Partner’s approach is based upon the active management of both active and passive instruments, bringing institutional techniques to the retail market.

OUR INVESTMENT APROACH

» Global. We are not constrained to any particular region(s): we prefer to invest in funds, ETFs and companies that will benefit from long-term secular growth trends, regardless of where they might be listed

» Multi-strategy. The portfolios gain exposure to a wide range of asset classes. Our solutions provide the Core models and are supplemented by a number of active and passive third-party funds

» Medium and long-term. We are long term in our approach to investment and look for investments that will create enduring value for our investors, however the world changes quickly and our tactical asset allocation process takes this into account.

» Technology enabled. We use the latest financial technology to analyse the investment markets and apply institutional techniques to our investment process, we believe retail clients deserve the best and most advanced solutions not just for the reserve of the few.

» Market factors and risk based. Our management style helps us to pinpoint the drivers of global change to capture the most compelling investment opportunities in balance with our risk-based analysis of markets and returns.

» Cost efficient. We have designed our solutions to provide the best market returns at the minimum cost.

Outcome orientation.

We believe there are significant opportunities to deliver better outcomes at lower costs, improving returns to investors and revenue to independent financial advisers (IFAs) and wealth managers. In our view wealth managers and IFAs give away too much value to multiple providers.

An exclusive partnership.

We work collaboratively with financial advisers and will take time to understand you and your practice. We won’t force fit ‘off-the-shelf’ solutions. Our service has been developed exclusively for the advice community; only our partners gain access to our proprietary solutions and technology.

POWERING YOUR CENTRALISED INVESTMENT PROPOSITION

Unlike a traditional discretionary manager, we don’t offer off-the-shelf solutions. Instead, we work in genuine partnership with financial advisers to create and run their centralised investment propositions. We create truly global multi-asset portfolios that are tailor-made to your advice process, constructed using our Risk First approach and Smart Asset Allocation.

We are committed to enhancing customer outcomes, delivered through pricing and service levels that we believe are amongst the most competitive in the UK market. Through our partnership with Host Capital, we bring together powerful investment methods that are usually the preserve of very large institutions.

Below is an example of twelve of our tailor-made portfolios, built around a single core investor proposition: to preserve the real value of their assets over time and replicate selective asset performance at low cost. Download portfolio factsheets here
