Aberdeen Standard Capital extends its Managed Portfolio Service

08 January 2015

Aberdeen Standard Capital, the discretionary fund manager, today announces the addition of five new Conventional portfolios to its Managed Portfolio Service (MPS) on the new Aberdeen Standard Investments Hub. The MPS enables advisers and their clients to access the same investment approach as the Aberdeen Standard Capital full discretionary service.

The new Conventional portfolios extend the Aberdeen Standard Capital range and will complement the existing Target Return portfolios, in terms of the client needs they seek to fulfil.

Conventional MPS portfolios 1, 2 and 3 may suit clients who would like to draw an income from their portfolio, while Conventional MPS portfolios 4 and 5 may suit clients seeking capital growth with a higher attitude to risk.

Key benefits of the range include:

  • Access to the expertise and research capabilities of Aberdeen Standard Capital and Aberdeen Standard Investments
  • Independent Strategic Asset Allocation advice from Moody's Analytics (previously Barrie & Hibbert)
  • A risk-based approach to portfolio construction that is designed to fit easily with adviser suitability processes

Richard Charnock, CEO, Aberdeen Standard Capital said:

"With the five new Conventional portfolios joining the existing Target Return portfolios, we can now offer one of the most comprehensive MPS solutions in the market."

"We can support advisers by helping them meet a much wider range of client needs. This is a clear demonstration of leveraging the expertise of Aberdeen Standard Capital and Aberdeen Standard Investments to provide positive solutions for advisers, their clients and their businesses."


Investment involves risk. - The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up and an investor may get back less than the amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future results.
