Investment Portfolios

CPN run a series of managed investment portfolios to suit different clients appetite for risk.

Our Portfolios

We have built our reputation as a trustworthy and reliable investment firm as a result of our dedication to diligent analysis, a long-term perspective, and our commitment to the preservation of capital. As a firm, our primary goal is to provide the best risk-adjusted returns we can for our clients. This means that whilst we are always striving to outperform the market, we will never attempt to do so by exposing capital your money to significant downside risk.

We feel that whilst most people invest with the goal of making returns, it is important that they are never subjected to permanent deprivation of capital. We have a commitment to risk management that permeates everything that we do and underlies all of the portfolios that we manage.

Our main line portfolios are built using a blend of the CPN OEIC Fund Range. Our Ethical and Specialist portfolios use a more traditional approach, building the portfolios with an extensively researched range of Ethical and Specialist funds.

Managed Portfolio Service (MPS)

The MPS is an actively managed investment service constructed in response to the need to recognise the different aspirations and goals of our clients and the varying appetites for risk they might have. The MPS is made up of a series of portfolios with different strategies ranging from Very Cautious through to Adventurous.

Each portfolio features a different blend of assets to reflect the trade-off between seeking to maximise returns whilst simultaneously protecting capital and minimising the potential for loss. Each portfolio is constantly monitored, reviewed, and optimised by our dedicated investment team. It is our goal to achieve the best possible returns for each portfolio whilst maintaining a considered and disciplined approach to managing the risk parameters.

Ethical Portfolio Service (EPS)

The EPS is an actively managed investment service constructed in response to the fact many clients now want to ensure that their portfolios match their ethical sensibilities. The EPS range follows broadly the same strategy and allocation as the main Managed Portfolio Service, but it takes into account environmental, social and governmental concerns.

We run three separate EPS portfolios to cater to the different risk categories, from the cautious investor up to the more adventurous. All of the portfolios screen out “unethical” companies like weapons, oil, and countries with questionable governments. A number of our funds also seek to make positive change by not only screening out bad companies but actively investing in companies that do good or promote a better world whilst still achieving good investment returns.
