Because Clients Deserve Better

Betafolio is the UK’s premier turnkey asset management provider (TAMP) offering flat fee, low-cost, evidence-based, discretionary model portfolio service exclusive to financial planning firms. 

We use technology to cut out unnecessary costs, inefficiencies and anxiety for advisers, while improving the long term investment returns for their clients.

TAMP > MPS

Managed Portfolio Service (MPS) on platforms are befitting of a bygone era. Time to fix the broken model.

With typically cost of 0.36%, MPS charge the equivalent of a third (and as much as half) of advice and planning fees. This flies in the face of reality in the digital age.

Thanks to technology, investment management is now a commodity. Personalised financial planning is where the real value for clients lie. MPS providers seem not to have acknowledged this in their charging structure and business model.

What separates Betafolio’s turnkey asset management programme (TAMP) from traditional MPS is that we use technology and our deep collaboration with financial planners to provide a comprehensive range of services that extend beyond managing money, at a significantly lower cost.

With Betafolio, financial planning firms can access a wide range of services that enable them to focus on delivering core financial planning and behavioural coaching to clients, while delegating time-consuming tasks such as portfolio construction, due-diligence, rebalancing and tax optimisation to us.

Simple, low cost, flat fee

We charge a flat fee for discretionary model portfolio management. The typical cost for the underlying funds in the portfolios is 0.25%. This gives clients the best possible chances of meeting their goals, at the least possible cost.

 

Powered by technology

Betafolio Control Centre is our one-stop digital portal for everything you need to manage your centralised investment proposition. This includes investment process documents, perfomance data and branded portfolio factsheets.

Driven by empirical evidence

We design portfolios that capture capital market return based on decades of empirical data and research by Nobel-Prize economists. We don’t chase fads, engage in market-timing and other behaviours that damages return.

Puts the adviser in control

Investment management is a commodity. Financial planning is where the real value to clients lie. That’s why we create portfolios that exist only in service of the financial plan. The plan leads, the portfolio follows.

Summary TableStart Date of the ScenarioTerminal value of the balanceCumulative Fees

This calculator demonstrates the impact of discretionary management fee on the client assets of adviser firms. The table above shows how the Betafolio's flat fee proposition compares with a typical discretionary investment. The calculator uses extensive monthly historical return of asset classes to reflect the true impact of cost under a wide range of market conditions.

Past performance is no guarantee of future return. The value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up. You may get back less than you invest. Transaction costs, taxes and inflation reduce investment returns.

1996 LETTER TO BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY SHAREHOLDERS

Investment management is a commodity whose market price has dropped close to zero, whereas the advice and judgment of a good financial planner can do wonders for your net worth.

JASON ZWEIG

INVESTMENT COLUMNIST @ WSJ

Beta appeals to the intellect, alpha is emotional. Everybody has the ability to find beta; nearly no one has the ability to find alpha. Beta is a humble approach to markets, a more honest recognition of the limits of your talent and personality type. Alpha ignores the probabilities, assuming they will beat those odds to obtain the holy grail.
