Investment consultancy from Buzzacott

Investment and risk strategy

Investment and risk strategy

It’s important to regularly review the overall strategy for your organisation’s assets. Changes to trustees, your organisation’s circumstances or objectives, are all prompts for risk and strategy reviews. We review your organisation’s circumstances, objectives and any existing investments, assess the associated risks, and suggest any changes required to align your investment strategy with your goals and agreed approach to risk. Where appropriate, this may also include reviewing ethical or sustainable investment approaches. Our understanding of ethical, environmental, social and governance factors, and how these can be integrated into charity investments, is unrivalled.

Investment Policy Statements

Investment Policy Statements

Suitable approaches to risk, agreement of any constraints on investments, ensuring your objectives and views are accurately recorded, and using relevant benchmarks for comparison, are all crucial to managing your assets. We review and draft policy statements and mandates that align your investment strategy with your desired outcomes.

Investment manager selection

Investment manager selection

There are many reasons why you may need to create an investment portfolio or appoint or replace an investment manager. We construct investment strategies and find, negotiate with, and advice on appointment of the most suitable investment firm(s) to understand and deliver your requirements. This provides peace of mind that a rigorous process has been followed and an appropriate solution implemented.

Investment monitoring and review

Investment monitoring and review

When assets are invested, it’s important for them to be monitored and reviewed regularly to ensure they remain suitable. We track and benchmark portfolio performance, scrutinise your investments and manager(s) on your behalf, and help you assess risk taken versus return achieved. Rely on our help and expertise to make sure your chosen investment manager is delivering against your objectives.

Cash and treasury advice

Cash and treasury advice

What works for a long-term portfolio is very different from what’s needed to manage liquid assets. Whether it be cash funds, corporate or government bonds, or deposit accounts, we evaluate the full range of risks to help you decide on the best cash and treasury policy, mitigating risks, matching objectives or liabilities and maximising return. We can also access Foreign Exchange (FX) services to help you manage the impact of FX costs to your organisation.

Why appoint an investment adviser?

Why appoint an investment adviser?

Appointing an investment adviser will ensure that your organisation receives professional consultancy on its assets. Performance can be presented in a reassuring way, but having an independent adviser, who can take on the burden of ensuring suitability and investment manager accountability, provides trustees with confidence that their investments are being managed in the best interests of their organisation.
