IPS ART

IPS ART

For us, protecting the downside is key and to do this, we use a comprehensive risk analysis and management system - IPS Analysis, Risk and Trading (ART). Using IPS ART, we are able to: 1. Apply our risk policy to all clients to ensure that we adhere to their investment requirements. Limits and restrictions are pre-programmed, so any potential conflict or breach can be identified in advance. 2. Stress test portfolios and run potential scenarios, thereby highlighting any possible areas of concern to ensure that our clients are comfortable with their investment strategies. We are in the business of ‘no surprises’, so it is important to us that our clients completely understand the potential risks to their portfolios.

Process

Process

To determine which assets are the most appropriate for our strategies, we use independent investment, economic and market research from respected agencies around the world. This information is assimilated and analysed by the Investment Committee who use their judgement and expertise to decide what and how much to invest in.

Philosophy

Philosophy

Our investment philosophy was formed from the belief that portfolio losses are reduced through diversification. By investing in a range of different asset classes that complement each other, acting independently in different market conditions, it is possible to produce more consistent returns at a lower risk. However, it is important to remember that returns do not come risk-free and therefore understanding our clients’ attitude to risk is fundamental to us.
