Managed Portfolio Service
The Managed Portfolio Service (MPS) is designed to be one of the most efficient and cost-effective ways for you to access our discretionary services for your clients. Under this arrangement you act as Agent for your client and instruct us on their behalf. We then create a discretionary portfolio for your client invested by way of one of our Cornelian funds. Each of these funds is invested in a broad range of assets, each has its own investment objective and each has a specific upper risk limit. The funds provide your client with a similar spread of investment and the level of research and investment management that they would expect from a bespoke discretionary portfolio.

Benchmark RPI +2%
The SVS Cornelian Managed Income Fund was launched on 20th March 2015.

Focus on Real Value
The primary objective of your client's Managed Portfolio is to provide them with a positive real return over the long term (after inflation). Each of the underlying funds has different targets aiming to exceed RPI by varying amounts, increasing as the risk in the funds increase.
Our funds hold around fifty to sixty underlying investments. This reduces the stock specific risk in your client's portfolio and also increases the potential for returns through the use of a variety of asset classes and investment in a range of geographical regions.
There are no capital gains tax implications when we trade in the assets of the underlying fund in your client's portfolio. This means we can make changes to the holdings on investment grounds without being restricted by tax liabilities.
A crucial part of any investment decision is how much risk an investor can afford and is willing to take. Therefore, we aim to achieve the investment objectives whilst managing the amount of risk taken in each fund. For that reason, we manage all of our funds below different risk limits.
Investment management efficiency
Your client's portfolio is invested in a fund structure. Withdrawals or additions do not disturb the balance of their portfolio and can be made efficiently and cost effectively at any time.
CGT Allowance Management
Should your client opt for this service, we will review their investments and seek to utilise as much of their annual CGT Allowance as is reasonably practicable while maintaining the risk profile of their portfolio.
