Psigma to stop applying VAT to its Managed Portfolio Service
We are pleased to announce that we will no longer apply VAT to our range of managed portfolio strategies, including the recently launched SRI MPS range.
Psigma Investment Management is confirming that it will no longer apply VAT on the Managed Portfolio Service (MPS), effective from 1 January 2021. This will apply to MPS, MPS on platforms and the Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) range of MPS.
This change means that we can now offer our adviser partners and their clients our asset allocation expertise and investment management services at a lower overall cost, regardless of which MPS service they choose to invest in.
Andrew Cantouris, Head of Psigma Investment Management, said:
“This is a very positive step, which enables us to offer our highly rated, core model-based investment management services, including our recently launched SRI MPS range, at an even more competitive price, benefiting and doing the right thing for clients.”
Notes to Editor
About MPS and SRI MPS
We offer a range of highly diversified, multi-asset investment strategies known as our Managed Portfolio Service (MPS), and these can be accessed with a minimum investment of £50,000. Our portfolios are built to suit a range of risk and return appetites, ranging from Cautious to Aggressive Growth, including strategies for income seeking clients. Our MPS portfolios can be accessed via a range of different wrappers and consist of six managed portfolios in the MPS range and four in the SRI MPS range.
All feature inflation-plus performance targets and access the same highly rated investment asset allocation expertise as our Bespoke investment service; providing a more cost-efficient route to a traditional discretionary investment service.
Platform Portfolios – MPS on Platform
Platforms are an integral part of our service proposition. We offer managed portfolios through many of the UK’s leading platforms.
These portfolios provide access to six multi-asset strategies designed to replicate those available directly through our Managed Portfolio Service. They invest in a wide range of asset classes from emerging market equities to cash using both passive and active investments.
