For intermediaries only.

Investing with Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management gives you access to a broad range of wealth management solutions. We have successfully grown our business and reputation over the years. Now, in the UK and Europe – including our recent acquisition of Hargreave Hale – our investment professionals manage and administer over £25 billion (as at 31 December 2017) of assets under management.   We have the size and scale to deliver experience and expertise, combined with a highly developed and up-to-date technical infrastructure. This provides efficient and effective investment management, as well as economies of scale that allow us to be price competitive. At the same time we’re small enough to provide a personal relationship-led service with direct access to our people and knowledge.

Working with you for your clients

Investment involves risk. The value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount originally invested.

Helping to protect wealth for future generations

The tax treatment of all investments depends upon individual circumstances and the levels and basis of taxation may change in the future.

About us

At CGWM our intermediary team is supported by 12 investment committees, 65 in-house researchers and analysts, and Quest®, Canaccord Genuity’s proprietary equity valuation system.

When you want us to build a portfolio for a client, we’ll start by asking you about what they want to achieve and their attitude to risk – or, at your request, our Investment Manager can carry out a full suitability assessment with your client.

Our services

When you are choosing a partner to help you manage your clients’ wealth, you want to be confident their investment process is rigorous, robust and trustworthy. Our main objective is the same as yours: to ensure your clients feel confident, valued and satisfied.

Our flexible investment framework can be tailored to meet your clients’ needs and attitudes to risk. You can access model-based to fully bespoke portfolios, accommodating high- to low-risk profiles, at various investment levels – all on our in-house platform. Our model-based services are also available through third party platforms. And throughout our relationship we’ll tailor our partnership to meet your needs and preferences as well as your clients’.

Look forward with confidence

There are now 1.6 million people aged 85 or over living in the UK and this is predicted to more than double in the next 23 years, to over 3.4 million. The number of UK centenarians has also risen – by 65% over the last decade – and nearly one in five people will live to see their 100th birthday.

So it’s increasingly likely that most of us will need to pay someone to look after us in old age, either at home or in a care home. Download our ‘Look forward with confidence’ brochure to see how we can help your clients plan for the cost of care, make allowances for IHT and support their children’s education

Our range of investment solutions

Bespoke discretionary

If a client selects this service, our investment professionals will build and run a personalised portfolio on their behalf, without needing to ask your client’s permission each time they want to make an adjustment. Your client’s dedicated Investment Manager will be committed to fulfilling their investment needs in line with their individual risk profiles, investment objectives and circumstances. As well as sterling, we can also provide tailored portfolios in euros and US dollars. Our bespoke discretionary portfolios invest in individual stocks, bonds, third party investments funds, ETFs and other alternative asset classes. Our investment team will look for suitable opportunities from around the world. Our investment approach is risk driven: we believe it’s more important to manage your clients’ portfolios to meet their risk objectives than to chase short-term returns.

Model Portfolio Service

We offer a range of risk-rated discretionary portfolios for clients who don’t need a tailored portfolio. For a recommended minimum investment of £100,000 they’ll have access to a level of resources usually reserved for high net worth discretionary clients. They can choose from seven MPS portfolios investing in collectives and ETFs, plus another five MPS portfolios investing in UK direct equity funds and direct bond holdings, which they can access either directly or through a third party platform. If you’re an IFA or trustee, we’re committed to supporting you, and we’ll respect your views of which investments are suitable for each of your clients – so we’ll map our models to your own risk-profiling tools.

Investment involves risk. The value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount originally invested. Investors should note that actual portfolio returns may be different to the returns of the model portfolio.

Additional services

IHT Portfolio Service 

Shares in some companies that trade on the AIM can potentially benefit from business property relief (BPR), which can provide 100% relief from IHT, provided the shares have been held by the client for a minimum of two years. With over 11 years of past performance our IHT service invests in a diversified range of established, profitable companies while offering growth potential to boost legacies. Available directly through Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management or a selected number of third party platforms, more details are available on request.

The current inheritance tax rules and tax treatment of AIM shares may change in the future. The value of any tax reliefs available is subject to individual circumstances.

Inheritance Tax Portfolio Service

Inheritance tax could one day cost your loved ones a significant sum of money. That’s why it’s important to know how it will affect you and your family, and how to make sure they don’t pay more than they need. If you’d like to know more about how we can help with your IHT and wealth planning needs, get in touch. We’ll be delighted to answer your questions and provide details of our services.

This service should be regarded as high risk as it is exclusively focused on equities. The portfolios are wholly invested in small capitalisation stocks. These companies are therefore more volatile and whilst they offer great potential, growth is not guaranteed. The current inheritance tax rules and tax treatment of AIM shares may change in the future. We strongly recommend that clients discuss their financial arrangements with their tax adviser before investing, as the value of any tax reliefs available is subject to individual circumstances.
