Canaccord Genuity rebrands REMAPs as GPS Optimized Portfolios


Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management has rebranded its range of volatility-capped portfolios as GPS Optimized Portfolios, as part of the firm's Global Portfolio Solutions (GPS) investment range.

Previously known as REMAP, the portfolios offer a unique investment solution by providing a powerful tool for managing volatility and risk, which can complement any wealth strategy.
The investment process underpinning GPS Optimised Portfolios provides investors with access to global investment ideas and opportunities, including direct equity investments. Equity selection is supported by Quest® and incorporates expertise from Canaccord Genuity Global Strategists Robert Jukes (UK) and Tony Dwyer (US). The proprietary Market Stress Indicator (MSI) helps to identify periods where markets might be vulnerable to meaningful declines and endeavours to cap risk whilst continuing to deliver to a smoother more confident path toward achieving client investment objectives.  
This process has been recognised as a best-in-class investing discipline and the portfolios are only available from Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management in the UK and Canada. The successful investment strategy received the Gold Standard Award for Discretionary Portfolio Management in 2012 and 2013, as well as a five-star rating by independent research firm Defaqto in 2014 and 2015.
Since inception, GPS Optimized Portfolio 5 (previously known as REMAP 5) has outperformed the ARC GBP Balanced PCI by 8.4 per cent. For the most recent 1 and 3 year periods, the portfolio has outperformed the ARC GBP Balanced PCI by 3.0 per cent and 4.4 per cent respectively.
David Esfandi (pictured), CEO of Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management in the UK, says: "Our GPS Optimized Portfolios have been providing clients with both steadier returns and consistent outperformance. Now with the added advantage of input from our global investment experts and the inclusion of direct equities in the models, we are confident that this service will continue to deliver measured returns with limited volatility."
