The PPS Fund range offers appropriate standalone solutions suitable to your individual requirements. Our multi-managed approach aims to increase the consistency of the returns you can expect from our funds by ensuring we appoint outstanding asset managers, combine them sensibly and monitor them diligently.
We partner with exceptional managers
PPS Multi-Managers partner with proven asset managers with demonstrable track records to construct robust investment strategies. We understand being exceptional sometimes means being different from the crowd, and our investment process is deliberately geared to accommodating such managers in robust portfolios.
We play to their strengths
No asset manager is good at everything. We give our managers bespoke mandates that play to their strengths, and make sure they remain focused on what they're good at. We also understand they may go through periods where their style is out of favour, but because we've deliberately combined different managers, we can accommodate such performance provided we're convinced the manager is sticking to what they are good at, and following their process.
At PPS Investments we have been successfully managing multi-manager funds for close to a decade. Our investment team follows a disciplined monthly process to ensure the asset managers in the portfolio are all doing the job they are meant to be doing. An independent investment policy committee has oversight on all investment decisions proposed by the investment team, and reports directly to the PPSI Board. This structure deliberately forces consistency and rigour on the investment process.
PPS Multi-Managers offers a focused range of funds suitable to most investors' needs. Please select from the range of funds targeting inflation, funds maximising outperformance, or funds tracking a benchmark, or contact your financial advisor who will gladly assist you. Our funds are all Collective Investment Schemes (C.I.S.) and regulated by the Financial Services Board (FSB).
