PPM launches Global Growth Separately Managed Account (SMA)

PPM launches Global Growth SMA as Adviser demand heats up for an experienced ‘active’ manager of Global equities.

Private Portfolio Managers (PPM) has successfully offered Global equity growth Individually Managed Account (IMA) portfolios for clients since 2007 and now in recognising the limited options advisers and their clients have to access an actively managed global shares, has launched the PPM Global Growth Model on Powerwrap as an SMA in both investment and superannuation options.

The PPM Global Growth Model is a concentrated portfolio of 20 to 25 global stocks in developed markets – principally the US, Europe and UK. Investment opportunities are selected using PPMs stock selection approach which uses three core concepts to identify financially strong, strategically superior and high return verses cost investments. PPM uses a ‘bottom up’ process and has a long term approach as indicated by the low portfolio turnover.

Hugh MacNally, CEO and Founder of PPM, sees the PPM Global Growth SMA model as an ideal solution for financial advisers who themselves do not have the capacity to access global markets and whose clients want access to the advantages of direct equity exposure (transparency, lack of pooled tax consequences and low cost). PPM saw the Powerwrap Smartwrap platform,  with its stockbroking and execution for Australia and Global markets, as a compelling partner for launching their first global SMA.

PPM will be one of only two global SMAs on the Powerwrap approved product list. Richard Carr, Head of Distribution at Powerwrap, is very supportive of the PPM launch commenting that “Advisers have been frustrated with limited direct global investment options and see global markets as key to gaining portfolio diversification.”

PPM’s SMAs enable clients to access their highly experienced team of investment managers, in-depth propriety research and a proven track record of over 20 years of successful management in equities investment solutions.

PPM seek to provide superior returns through their disciplined bottom up approach that does not listen to market sentiment but adheres to fundamental measures of value and risk.
