At Novia Global we recognise there is a strong demand in the international investment market for intermediaries such as advisers and trust companies to delegate portfolio management responsibilities to specialist third party Discretionary Fund Managers (DFM’s).
Our DFM model portfolio solution (MPS) service has been established to enable simple access to a range of specially chosen Panel DFMs through the platform so that you and your clients can benefit from the expert portfolio management and investment research capabilities each DFM can offer.
Novia Global enables a Discretionary Fund Manager to be used via the service and both clients and intermediaries can therefore benefit from:
A selection of DFM’s each with their own unique management styles and areas of in-house expertise
Making investment decisions and carrying out transactions for clients quickly and efficiently with the click of a button
Using model portfolios to tailor investment solutions to suit clients’ needs
Being remunerated in a clear and transparent manner from the clients’ cash facility held within each product

International Managed Portfolio Service (IMPS)
Our International Managed Portfolio Service is a selection of three risk-rated portfolios – Cautious, Balanced and Growth - suitable for clients who have at least £50,000 (or the US dollar/euro equivalent) to invest. They give you and your client access to our organisation-wide expertise, global research and resources at a level that is usually only available when investing a much higher amount.
Whichever option you choose, your client will have their own managed portfolio, suited to their risk needs, while enabling you both to share the benefits of our CGWM investment expertise and continuous monitoring.
We select investments from the entire marketplace, so your client’s portfolio will hold a range of investments across different asset classes. This ensures it is fully diversified, which manages and reduces investment risk.
The CGWM Funds range consists of five multi-manager, multi-asset funds, designed with different levels of risk and return to meet your clients’ specific investment objectives and risk preferences:
The CGWM Funds are actively managed on a daily basis, ensuring that your client’s investments stay abreast of changes in the market.
Our investment managers have built up an excellent track record through both bull and bear markets: for example, Mark Piper has managed our Opportunity Fund since 2001, while Justin Oliver has run the Affinity and Diversity Funds for over 15 years.
The CGWM Funds are ideal for investors living away from their home country. They are designed to be flexible, so clients can top up their investments whenever they want, wherever they are living. The CGWM Funds are available through many international life company tax-efficient wrappers.
EQ Investors Limited ("EQ") specialises in sustainable and impact investing, providing solutions which not only deliver an attractive return but are also committed to making a positive contribution to society or the environment.
EQ Investors is an award-winning, boutique wealth manager providing investment management services to individuals, small businesses and charitable endowments. On behalf of the financial advisers we work with, we cater for clients with a few thousand pounds as well as those with tens of millions. We are committed to excellence, not in trying to be the biggest. EQ Investors is also a founding B corporation in the UK, believing in business as a force for good.
The EQ Positive Impact Portfolios
Launched in 2012, the EQ Positive Impact Portfolios are a range of sustainable and impact investment solutions suitable for retail investors. They are designed for clients who want to go beyond ethical or social 'avoidance strategies'.
The EQ investment team has spent several years researching investments from across the socially responsible, ethical, sustainable and impact investment markets and has developed rigorous scoring methodologies. These help us to measure the degree of intentionality of a particular fund to have an impact on society and the environment as well as the real impact it has achieved. We attempt to identify where one can genuinely make a difference with investment capital, while not compromising on performance.
EQ's Investment Team is highly regarded for its expertise in the measurement of social and environmental impact. We demonstrate that responsible use of investment capital can help to tackle many of the environmental and social issues existing today.
As a result, our portfolios will give your clients the confidence to know they are investing in the fund managers who actively seek out social and environmental improvements over and above simply avoiding vices, thereby providing a more 'positive' or 'intentional' investment proposition.
The EQ Positive Impact Portfolios are not just about selecting investments that do good. They are also about selecting good investments. Alongside our social and environmental research processes, our investment management team apply all their knowledge to find investments which we believe have the potential to beat equivalent but less responsibly managed funds in terms of the financial returns they can deliver. We then build portfolios which we believe provide sustainable outperformance versus peers.

Waverton is an independent investment management house dedicated to providing high quality investment outcomes through discretionary portfolios for both international and UK clients. We are single minded in our approach and only provide investment management services - dovetailing with the financial and tax planning advice provided by financial planners. Founded in 1986, the firm now has over 120 members of staff, of which a quarter are portfolio managers with responsibility for over £5.2bn of assets (as at 30th September 2017).
We have developed the Waverton Portfolios on Novia Global to be specifically suited to the needs of international clients and advisers seeking a platform based solution.
The Novia Global portfolios are constructed using four specialist offshore Waverton OEIC Funds which are managed specifically to form the building blocks of the portfolio. The four Funds are the Waverton Tactical Equity, Global Core Equity, Bond and Alternatives Funds. The holdings of each fund are managed in a complementary way so that there is a consistent strategy throughout the portfolios.
The benefit of our approach is that it allows investors access to the entire Funds universe (both onshore and offshore) through the four Waverton building block funds. The portfolios, therefore, are not restricted in their holdings.
Our approach also allows us to provide the portfolios at a highly competitive rate.
We have an established history of running platform based portfolios in this way with a proven track record that we would be delighted to share with you.
All our portfolios invest on a global basis and are fully diversified by asset class, including the use of alternative assets.
