London & Capital partners with Alexander Beard to access portfolios on Skandia platform

RELATED TOPICS​

Independently-owned discretionary wealth manager London & Capital has teamed up with Alexander Beard Group to provide access to London & Capital’s suite of managed portfolios – 10 actively managed and risk-graded growth portfolios and three income portfolios – on the Skandia platform.

Richard Leigh (pictured), London & Capital’s co-founder and head of adviser solutions, says: “We are delighted to have reached this arrangement with Alexander Beard Group and Skandia whereby our portfolios can be accessed on the Skandia platform. So far, 2013 has been a fantastic year for the portfolios in terms of performance and uptake from advisers. Skandia is one of the most popular platforms in the market and we hope that this arrangement is the first of many with leading advisers from across the UK on the platform.”
 
London & Capital’s portfolios are constructed to spread risk by investing in numerous asset classes – blending traditional actively managed funds with low-cost tracker funds. This multi-asset approach is designed to protect capital by providing clients with sustainable returns within a tightly controlled risk framework. At 35bps + VAT on the Skandia platform, they are one of the most competitive in the market.
 
Paul Beard, founder and executive chairman, Alexander Beard Group, says: “I am delighted that Skandia have made London & Capital’s ten growth and three income portfolios available on their platform – this provides a ‘best of both’ situation where our group can access Skandia’s platform excellence along with London & Capital’s leading DFM offering. The portfolios offer market-leading fees and an excellent performance track record. This development also helps complete Alexander Beard Group’s desired fund management objectives for its post RDR client proposition.”
