7IM Hand Picked by RSMR Who Launches a New Discretionary Fund Manager Rating Service for Advisers

Seven Investment Management (7IM) is one of just six Discretionary Fund Managers (DFMs) to have been given a prestigious new rating by RSMR as the fund ratings agency launches its new ratings service for advisers.

Robert Poulten, Head of Sales, 7IM said: “With the proliferation of products and services which can now come under the heading “discretionary”, advisers are increasingly looking for additional clarity when it comes to selecting discretionary fund managers. This rigorous, qualitative based new ratings system means RSMR have really got under the bonnet of how we run our portfolios within our various services, so it means a great deal to have been amongst the very first selected.” 

The benefits of 7IMs discretionary service:

  • Advisers can access 7IM through a wide range of discretionary services with active and passive approaches, unitised funds or segregated models all built around the clients’ objectives. 
  • 7IM offer very flexible services, with either client contact and suitability responsibility, updates and commentary or just simply investment execution, reporting and administration.  There are also a range of custody and platform options with the 7IM Model Portfolio Service which are not just ‘products’ but come with a range of supporting insights from 7IM investment professionals.

  • Perhaps unusually for a discretionary fund manager, we also work with other complementary investment managers to reduce risk and enhance portfolio returns where suitable. 

  • Portfolios can be managed within or outside tax wrappers, onshore or offshore custodied with UK or Dublin funds.

  • The value of investments may go up and down and your investors may get back less than they invested originally.
