Working in partnership

PPM works in partnership with financial advisers to provide professional investment management expertise and a proven track record with our Separately Managed Account (SMA) solutions for clients of advisers.

An SMA is an effective way for financial advisers to offer a direct equity portfolio to their clients while gaining significant time and cost savings for their business by outsourcing the investment management, custody and execution. For clients, an SMA provides a hassle-free mode of direct ownership of an equity portfolio that is professionally managed by an established investment manager.

Proven investment record

PPM supports financial advisers by providing detailed regular reporting by the Portfolio Managers not only on individual holdings but on market and investment themes. This keeps our adviser partners up to date on the changes to their client’s portfolios, what securities are included and why. We work with advisers and their dealer groups to attend PD days as well as present at client seminars and in-house functions. We provide access to the portfolio managers through monthly fact sheets, market updates, quarterly insights and our “Meet the Portfolio Manager” events. Advisers are supported by a range of additional market and product related collateral and a dedicated SMA professional contact at PPM can assist you and answer any queries.

PPM’s SMA solutions are accessible through the secure leading online platforms of Hub24, OneVue and Powerwrap, with advisers and their clients benefitting from easy portfolio access and simple consolidated reporting.

As clients invest through a platform, at no time does PPM have your client’s information.
