Investment process

The portfolio is divided into three parts: Market Innovators; Market share gainers; Market Beneficiaries. Career sector analysts pick the stocks, not the named portfolio manager, who simply looks at the risk analysis of the portfolio using the BARRA system. Allocation to each analyst at the amount of money equivalent to the weight of their sector in the benchmark (the Russell 1000). Thereafter the investment process is all about stock picking and individual stock weights within each sector. Target return is +150% over their benchmark stocks' weight. If stocks do not outperform then the analyst is not paid. Maximum is 300% overweight.

About the MRI

Our unique indicator: the Bestinvest Manager Record Index (MRI) measures the likelihood that the fund manager is adding value through their decisions. It is based on their performance record over the course of their career, adjusted for the amount of risk taken. MRI is an important contributor to our fund rating system but it is also vital to take account of qualitative factors. It is also very important to select funds to form a cohesive portfolio with an appropriate overall risk level.
