As part of Ascentric’s commitment to offer advisers the broadest range of products to meet their clients’ often complex needs, it is pleased to announce the availability of Clear Capital Management LLP’s Model Portfolios as a new Discretionary Fund Management (DFM) service on the platform.
Clear Capital Management LLP (Clear CM) has built an excellent reputation over the past two years for its discretionary investment Model Portfolios, which make innovative use of exclusive access to structured corporate bonds issued by Corporate Finance Bonds Limited Secured Note Programme. Advisers will now have access to a range of four Model Portfolios: Absolute Return Fixed Weight Portfolios, Classic Active Portfolios, Classic Passive Portfolios and Bespoke Portfolios.
Commenting on the inclusion of Clear CM on the Ascentric platform, Justin Blower, Head of Sales at Ascentric, said:
“We’re firmly committed to providing advisers with one of the widest DFM investment options possible to help them manage their client money in the way they want. The addition of Clear CM’s range of portfolios with their unique investment approach is a great addition to our growing list of DFMs. They offer advisers an alternative investment approach to the already extensive DFM and investment range we have available to the more than 3000 advisers who use our service.”
Martin Vaughan, Senior Partner at Clear CM, commented:
"We’re very much rooted in the world of the financial adviser and the needs of their clients. Our investment approach, coupled with advisers being able to use the Ascentric stockbroking dealing service, offers them the freedom to use more than just conventional funds. We believe there’s a natural fit for us to offer our unique Model Portfolios on the Ascentric platform.
The inclusion of the Secured Note Programme, as a major component of the Absolute Return Fixed Weight Portfolios, is also very timely for those advisers who are currently looking to protect their client’s capital from the potential market uncertainty ahead.”
