London & Capital managed portfolios available on Ascentric Platform


The Adviser Solutions team at independent wealth manager London & Capital has made its popular discretionary Managed Portfolios available via Ascentric, the full service wrap platform and wealth administration service.

Offering access to a wide range of assets available in the UK market, and constructed to spread risk by investing in numerous asset classes, the Portfolios blend traditional funds with ETFs. This multi-asset approach is designed to protect capital by providing clients with sustainable returns within a tightly controlled risk framework.

The actively managed UK Portfolios have delivered solid performance since their inception over 18 months ago. By way of example, Model Portfolio 10 has delivered a 7.94% return and 10.74% volatility since inception, Model Portfolio 5* (the average risk rated Portfolio across the range) returning 6.61%, with a volatility of 6.44%** over the same period.

London & Capital’s Joint Managing Director, Richard Leigh is delighted to have linked up with Ascentric. “We are offering intermediaries a highly competitive product, through one of the top platform providers in the industry," he says . "With our proven track record of delivering strong annualised returns over the course of some twenty years, we always believed the Managed Portfolios would make for a compelling proposition, given their performance, cost and flexibility”.

Ascentric’s Managing Director Hugo Thorman (pictured) is equally pleased to have the London & Capital range on board. “We have seen a notable increase from advisers who use Ascentric to access the services of third party investment managers. As a leading supplier of such services we are very pleased to be launching London & Capital and its Managed Portfolios on the platform."

London & Capital believes the next 18 months will see some of the biggest changes witnessed in the Financial Services industry for more than 20 years, with RDR expected to cause real headaches for some IFAs. However, the firm believes these changes will also introduce greater clarity, and more business for others. “I see really exciting times ahead”, says Leigh.
