FE Invest is our range of discretionary model portfolios offering Advisers investment options to suit a range of investor risk profiles and investment objectives.
With AUM surpassing the £1.5billion mark in just over 3 years since launch, FE Invest has been named the fastest growing DFM on platform by independent research from Platforum.
The suite of risk-optimised model portfolios is built using a unique investment process driven by our industry renowned ratings system, comprehensive fund data and cutting-edge technology with the oversight of experienced professionals. This ensures the model portfolios are well optimised for their risk bands and are completely free from bias.
FE's ratings review 20 years' worth of performance history to identify the best of breed funds within the whole of the market. The highest-scoring funds are reviewed by our expert analysts to create the FE Invest Approved Fund List. This shortlist forms the foundation of our range of model portfolios.
Choice and flexibility
The FE Invest Approved Fund List contains funds from across the market from the largest household names to specialist boutiques. This means that our model portfolios include a variety of asset types, active and passive strategies offering Advisers an 'Active Core' range, 'Hybrid' range, a 'Responsibly Managed' range and a dedicated income portfolio. The Active and Hybrid range are available in five risk levels and term weighted in short, medium and long term at each risk level.
Active risk management
At FE, we focus on risk to achieve the right returns for your clients. The FE Invest model portfolios are created using specialist optimising technology built in-house that runs 17 trillion fund combinations from the FE Invest Approved Fund List to select funds that will give each portfolio the appropriate level of volatility and largest diversification benefit.
Once the most diverse model portfolio for each risk level has been identified, additional scenario analysis is conducted to ensure the portfolio behaves as it should in a wide variety of market conditions.
