The Investment Committee Framework

The investment committee framework is designed to:

  • Offer you protection from a FAIS perspective
  • Involve you in the portfolio management process

The framework has a strong focus on fund analysis, ensuring a thorough understanding of the drivers of performance in your funds. The result is a range of wrap funds with clearly articulated and documented goals.

How The Portfolio Construction Process Works

It is important to agree to the investment philosophy, process and objectives up front. This helps to maintain the focus on delivering on the contracted mandate. Together we form a partnership, aimed at achieving the investment objectives of the portfolio and the desired investor outcome.

  1. We gain a better understanding of your advice process to establish the guiding principles that underpin the way your portfolio is managed.
  2. We then define and document the investment philosophy and fund objectives.
  3. A consultative process aimed at building a portfolio that is well positioned to meet the objectives of the fund follows, taking into account current and anticipated market conditions.
  4. SMMI’s compliance team reviews the entire investment implementation process every quarter to ensure your funds continue to meet legislative requirements.

Subscribing to this robust process means your funds will meet the portfolio objectives as set out in the investment mandate of each fund over time. Because you are integral to the manager selection process, you also gain understanding and insight into the portfolios that you offer to your clients.
