Fund selection

Selecting funds and building portfolios can be a time consuming and demanding process.

Effective portfolio construction involves understanding a client’s investment goals along with their attitude to risk then choosing the appropriate investments to match. You also need to regularly review the selection to ensure that the portfolio continues to reflect how these needs can be met in changing market conditions. All this requires access to the right investment solutions, with the flexibility to refine the investment choices as the needs of the client change.

With Old Mutual Wealth, you have a choice when it comes to fund selection and portfolio construction. You can choose to either use funds from the range of around 60 funds within our WealthSelect solution with the option to outsource portfolio construction by selecting our Managed Portfolio Service, or select funds and build your own portfolios from the funds available within funds in our SelfSelect range.
