DISCRETIONARY PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT SERVICE
This service allows your day-to-day portfolio investment decisions for some or all of your portfolio to be delegated to a dedicated portfolio manager. By delegating the management of part or all of your portfolio to us, we can provide you with access to a top-tier product shelf across asset classes, markets and currencies.
We also screen institutional-quality investment managers from across the globe, so your assets are invested by world-class investment professionals, all within the bounds of an agreed mandate.
Our multi-asset class discretionary portfolios cover four mandate offerings (yield, balanced, growth and equity) where you can choose a stand-alone model to fill each asset class within that mandate. By investing in our multi-asset discretionary portfolios, your portfolio is managed by institutional managers and asset allocation is guided by the Crestone House View.
