Discretionary investment management is a form of investment management in which buy and sell decisions are made by a portfolio manager for the client's account. The term "discretionary" refers to the fact that investment decisions are made at the portfolio manager's discretion.
Discretionary investment management can only be offered by individuals who have extensive experience in the investment industry and advanced educational credentials, with many investment managers possessing the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation. Discretionary investment management is generally only offered to high net worth clients who have a significant level of investable assets.
However through Lifegrid and their partners, clients with £10,000 or more to invest can have access to this type of investment.
Discretionary investment management also aligns the investment manager's decisions with that of the client by offering 3 model portfolios based on the levels of risk associated with them, and in line with our client’s attitude to investment risk.
Discretionary investment management may also ensure that the client has access to better investment opportunities through the portfolio manager. The client may also receive better prices for executed trades, as the portfolio manager can put through a single buy or sell order for multiple clients.
Corporate bonds are popular among investors, typically offering lower risk and higher income than shares.
A new route to investing direct in companies has opened up in recent years from the retail bond market as well as the more risky mini bonds.
Meanwhile, many corporate bond funds have done better than expected as interest rates have stayed lower for longer.
Corporate bonds are issued as a way of raising money for businesses - it's essentially a certificate of debt issued by major companies when you buy bonds you are lending money to a company in exchange for an IOU.
The IOU has a term and at maturity (typically Two, Three, five or ten years) the sum invested is returned in full.
The only thing that might stop this is if the company actually goes bust, (however you do have protection from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme in this event.)
The bond also has a coupon - the amount of interest paid, that generally between 6 – 9% per year depending on the company issuing the bond.
All advice provided is FCA regulated as are the investments, the investments are also protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
