The Regulator and market forces have combined to place total accountability with Advisers for the investment recommendations they make to their Clients.
Financial Advisers have always been well aware of their responsibilities to Clients and have done as much as possible to ensure the integrity and suitability of their recommendations.
The difficulty today, with the proliferation of investment options, is that it is difficult to access all the information necessary to fulfil our responsibilities to our Clients. For Consumers acting on their own behalf the challenge is even greater because they will usually not have the experience of an Adviser nor their supporting resources.
CAERUS Capital is managing this concern for both Advisers and Consumers in regard to our Fund range.
All Advisers and Consumers who use our Funds can be certain that they are accurately risk rated and that the Investment Managers will stick to their mandates. We will monitor the Investment Managers and ensure that they are in line with Adviser's and Client's expectations. Moreover, we will impose on all our Investment Managers the requirement for complete transparency. Finally, we will use our influence to drive down the costs of investment management to the Consumer.
Introduction to CAERUS Portfolio Management Limited
Established in 2010, CAERUS Portfolio Management Limited (CPML), a new FSA regulated Fund Management Company is part of CAERUS Capital Group Limited (CAERUS). CAERUS was established to combine fund management with advice for the benefit of both Advisers and Consumers.
CPML's goal is to deliver an innovative investment proposition for Consumers whether they require bespoke solutions or low cost investments. We are approaching things differently; our investment proposition seeks to meet Consumers expectations, in terms of the level of risk in their portfolios, the return they can expect and the fees they pay.
We examine the UK investment market and select renowned Investment Managers to manage a specific Fund or range of Funds on our behalf. These Investment Managers are carefully selected, have a particular specialism and proven track record. Each Investment Manager is given a mandate, a contractual agreement which specifies how each Fund or range of Funds should be managed.
This mandate specifies the level of risk they can take and their budget. We want our Investment Managers to use their expertise but not with the consequence of putting Consumers' money at greater risk. The CAERUS Investment Committee, made up of industry professionals, is responsible for monitoring each Investment Manager and how they perform to that mandate.
