What we do
At Standard Chartered Private Bank, discretionary portfolios represent the core of our investment solutions. Our strengths vest within asset allocation and research and our discretionary platform is truly open architecture. The offering comprises a number of strategies across multiple asset classes, some of which are managed internally by our portfolio managers while some are managed by third party institutional sub advisors on behalf of Standard Chartered.
Balanced Portfolios – Actively managed, multi-asset class global portfolios constructed using both individual securities and highly rated mutual funds.
Securities Portfolios – Offer a choice of actively managed, single-asset class, regional or sector-focused portfolios constructed using individual securities.
Funds Portfolios – Choice of diversified actively managed, single-asset class regional portfolios, or multi-asset class global portfolios constructed using highly rated mutual funds
Managers are identified for their historical performance track records, together with a number of equally important criteria which includes their regulatory and compliance standing, investment philosophy and research capabilities. The managers are subject to quarterly and annual “audits” ensuring they continue to adhere to agreed philosophies.
From an asset allocation standpoint, we will blend these different strategies into a bespoke portfolio matching the investment goals, time horizon and risk-return profile of each individual client.
