Investment process
The process behind our range of Select DFM portfolios uses a combination of passive and active management. We passively allocate to major asset classes such as gilts, corporate bonds and equities and apply an element of active management to a portion of this through a risk on and risk off approach. In addition to this we also use a small allocation to our absolute return funds to add an extra degree of risk management, diversification and drawdown protection.
