Quilter Investors launches Monthly Income and Monthly Income & Growth Portfolios
Quilter Investors is today pleased to launch its new Monthly Income and Monthly Income and Growth Portfolios.
The portfolios feature a ‘Founder’ share class available for six months on Quilter’s Old Mutual Wealth and Old Mutual International platforms with a Fixed Ongoing Charge of 0.6%.
The two globally diversified portfolios will distribute income payments monthly. A smoothing mechanism will be applied to the income payments to provide clients with increased certainty over the expected level of regular income.
Both portfolios aim to achieve a first quartile yield and will be managed according to a risk targeted approach, providing reassurance over the expected level of volatility clients can anticipate. Available in both accumulation and income share classes, the portfolios will appeal to clients seeking a regular income solution, as well as those seeking to benefit from compound growth through re-investing income.
Portfolio manager, Helen Bradshaw, will actively manage the portfolios using a broad range of underlying investment instruments. These include active managers, passive strategies, smart beta, investment trusts and alternatives funds in order to build globally diversified multi-asset portfolios.
Portfolio manager Helen Bradshaw says:
“Building and designing these portfolios has been a huge privilege and it is really exciting to now be opening them up to investors. I believe that our investment strategy will enable us to deliver first quartile income yields through a diversified strategy by deploying a broad and varied investment toolkit.
“The search for income continues to be a challenge for investors and while the UK’s domestic index currently offers an attractive dividend yield, it is highly dependent on a relatively narrow range of stocks. Elsewhere, many markets are experiencing depressed equity dividends, and fixed income markets no longer deliver the kind of reliable returns they once offered. That makes the search for stable yields an intricate challenge and it is really important to me that we explore a broad investment universe that encompasses a variety of global regions and asset classes.”
Chief commercial officer Dean Bowden says:
“Launching the first new investment solutions as Quilter Investors is an exciting milestone for the business. Developing the Monthly Income and Monthly Income and Growth Portfolios with input from the adviser community has allowed us to build a solution tailored specifically around the needs of the client. By delivering a smoothed monthly income through a risk-targeted investment strategy, we believe the portfolios represent an attractive solution for clients seeking an income proposition.”
