GAM has launched its discretionary fund management proposition for advisers under the command of ex-Quilter duo Charles Hepworth and James McDaid.
The model portfolio service for the UK IFA market comprises five risk-rated models that cover a range of risk-return profiles, covering capital preservation to full equity market participation.
It provides access to its asset allocation and management selection capabilities through a range of channels, including the new personalised collective account (PCA).
The range consists of:
* GAM MPS Defensive Portfolio, with volatility between 5.2% and 7.8% a year
* GAM MPS Cautious (7.8%-10.4%)
* GAM MPS Balanced (volatility 10.4%-13%),
* GAM MPS Growth (13%-15.5%)
* GAM MPS Global Equity (15.6%-18.2%).
Investors can gain access to the models, which are managed within pre-set volatility ranges, through platforms, segregated accounts and PCA.
