Overview of IWIinvestor approach to Investment

As a licenced Financial Service Provider, IWIinvestor provides the means for its clients to grow their wealth by accessing appropriate investment opportunities cost-effectively.
This is achieved by providing investment advice and portfolio management.
IWIinvestor’s approach is to provide its clients with low cost, independent, socially responsible and highly diversified portfolios that acknowledge the client’s risk profile.
IWIinvestor has seven multi-asset class portfolios ranging from low to high risk. This comprehensive range of portfolios enables clients of varying risk profiles to access portfolios that best match their appetite to risk. All investments are held in managed funds, there are no direct securities in the portfolios.

IWIinvestor investment process
IWIinvestor’s Investment Committee is responsible for model portfolio design and monitoring.
While IWIinvestor retains the governance responsibility for investment activity, we have outsourced research, due diligence and portfolio design to MyFiduciary.
Their recommendations are reviewed by the IWIinvestor Investment Committee and, if accepted, then ratified by the IWIinvestor Board.
IWIinvestor does not hold any client money or client property, it uses a Wrap Service Provider FNZ Limited (FNZ), to administer all client funds and securities. FNZ is completely independent of IWIinvestor and holds the client’s investments in its name with the client being the beneficial owner.
