Wealth manager Berry Asset Management (BAM) has linked up with Novia to offer a range of five risk-graded model portfolios.
The portfolios, which launch this week, consist of Managed Portfolio Service (MPS) Defensive, MPS Cautious Income, MPS Balanced, MPS Growth and MPS Aggressive.
Risk return characteristics of each model, which are rebalanced quarterly, are closely aligned with Novia's risk profiling tools. The annual charge is 0.3%, exclusive of VAT, with a minimum investment of £1,000.
"It was not hitherto possible to service the needs of those with more modest portfolios, but that has all changed with the Retail Distribution Review, with more and more intermediaries remodelling their businesses to embrace an outsourced investment solution," said BAM CEO Jamie MacLeod.
BAM is a majority-owned subsidiary of the Geneva-based global private banking group Bordier & Cie.
Baroness Altmann has said the government is handing the pensions industry “millions of customers on a plate” through auto-enrolment, but warned it was not about to raise minimum contribution rates.
