Star Managers' Portfolio

The Star Managers' Portfolio

In the investment arena, as in any other walk of life, some people are more successful than others. Why not, therefore, invest with fund managers whose long-term performance record is better than most?

In order to invest online into this portfolio or any of the funds described simply click on “Invest Now” above, or if you wish to invest via an application form these can be downloaded from our “Request Literature” page.

NO INITIAL CHARGES on our recommendations.

A client investing a lump sum in the Star Managers' Portfolio, via ISA Ltd, will pay no initial charge. Information correct as at 31st December 2016.

We can also offer no initial charge on over 1000 funds. Please see our Discounts page for a full list of funds available at no initial charge. Contact us by email or telephone if you need help finding a fund.

By investing in concentrated holding investors lose the opportunity for risk reduction which a diversified spread traditionally confers. Anyone who follows a narrow approach therefore is likely to be motivated primarily by a sense of adventure rather than the orthodox one of portfolio discipline.

Investec Cautious Managed I Discount Final Charge Launch Date Fund Type View KIID

The remainder of the portfolio is invested in hard commodities such as Gold, Silver and inflation linked bonds. This fund is for the nervous investor.

N/A 0% December 2009 Acc

The fund seeks to generate an absolute return over a 3 year rolling period, independent of market conditions, by investing on a global basis.

Marlborough Special Situations P Discount Final Charge Launch Date Fund Type View KIID
N/A 0% July 1995 Acc

The Marlborough Special Situations fund is based on a very simple premise: smaller companies tend to grow quicker than large ones. This fund continues its success in the UK smaller companies sector with the very knowledgeable Giles Hargreave at its helm. The main focus of special situations is emphasised by investing in companies going through a difficult period with good recovery prospects, restructurings or takeovers.

All statistics are quoted “bid to bid”, or its OEIC equivalent (with net dividends reinvested) to 31st December 2016. Where funds have less than a five year record the periods quoted are those in respect of complete calendar years only. Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance and may not be repeated. The value of an investment, and any income from it, can fall as well as rise as a result of market and currency fluctuations and you may not get back the original amount invested. Some of the funds listed above invest in emerging markets or Pacific Rim economies. These investments are more volatile and as such they expose the investor to greater risks than mature markets such as the UK. These risks include currency movements and exchange control restrictions, as well as political and economic instability in the countries concerned. In addition, under certain circumstances investors may suffer if the underlying investments become illiquid, or experience other problems due to the underdeveloped nature of the securities markets in some emerging countries. Where funds invest in relatively few individual assets the performance of the fund is significantly influenced by a small number of companies. Where fund managers use derivatives this may increase the funds volatility and may restrict growth in a rising market. Previously we have always used the bundled share class when presenting performance statistics as these included all costs. As the bundled share class is no longer available all performance figures are representative of the new 'clean' share class that do not include any of the administration charges detailed in our terms of business.
