Our unique combination of financial and legal services…
Our portfolio review service is an independent evaluation of the investment strategy and performance of a current investment manager after costs, and how this compares to the industry generally.
With Mifid II legislation in place, fund managers must comply with enhanced transparency on fund and transaction costs, regular client reporting, and disclosures of conflicts which enables us to make meaningful comparisons to ensure the service investors are receiving offers value for money.
Below are some of the due diligence questions our service appraises.
- Are the financial goals well defined?
- Does the portfolio materially match the objectives and tolerance for risk?
- Does the solution meet the investors’ needs?
- How are dealing commissions, fund selections, and fees impacting on the returns?
- Does the Investment Manager offer a choice of tailored solutions?
- What Due Diligence has been undertaken and how is the portfolio monitored?
- Is there a structured process to ensure that the investments remain within their articulated risk appetite, and any changes to their circumstances are met?
- How regularly are investors getting updates on their portfolios?
- Are there regular communications on how the decisions taken meet the objectives?
- Has the overall performance of the portfolio been negatively affected by the costs and charges of the fund manager and investment products?
Progeny charge £500 excluding VAT for a portfolio review which may be rebated against our service agreement.

How are your investments performing?
We know that investors want the best possible service, and that sometimes it can be difficult to effectively and accurately judge the performance, value for money, and governance an investment manager is providing.
Our portfolio review service enables investors to obtain a fully independent analysis including:
Asset allocation is based on the understanding that different types of assets do not move together, and some are more volatile than others. We will measure your portfolio against a risk aligned target asset allocation to show whether it is optimised for your risk/return profile.
Risk assessment is the maximum expected portfolio return for a given amount of portfolio risk. An overall portfolio risk assessment will be undertaken against a risk- aligned target asset allocation.
Stock & Fund Assessment
Stock performance will be undertaken using quantitative ratio analysis to give insight into the liquidity, operational efficiency, and profitability of stocks.
Fund Assessment will be undertaken using a combination of risk adjusted returns and quantitative performance to show the strength of performance trends.
We will perform a performance assessment against the appropriate Progeny composite benchmark, to show the actual returns that a private client should expect for a given risk appetite.
We will prepare a fully compliant cost analysis including: Investment Service Charges, Transaction Costs (Trading Commission, Stamp Duty, PTM Levy), Ongoing Management Fees, Performance Fees, Product ‘Transaction’ Costs, and Ongoing Charges.

If you invest in currencies other than your own, fluctuations in currency value will mean that the value of your investment will move independently of the underlying asset.
