Establishing the Drivers

Selecting a strategy

When managing a client’s portfolio, Framont will always implement an investment strategy that is suitable for the particular client in question and in line with client’s (a) investment objectives and risk tolerance, (b) financial situation, and (c) knowledge and experience. Other factors such as asset classes and diversification will also be taken into consideration.

Portfolio composition and optimization

Framont undertakes to make the best asset class selection within a diversified portfolio, according to various investment strategies, achieved through the identification and reduction of specific risks in order to obtain optimal portfolio performance.

Active Portfolio rebalancing

At regular intervals each portfolio is rebalanced according to the structure of its asset allocation target, in order to maintain the right blend of assets. Geographical and sectorial diversity are maintained mindful of the investment objectives on which it was established. The asset allocation is reviewed on a regular basis.

Active management monitoring

Framont performs a regular evaluation of portfolio status, to ensure that the client’s investment objectives are being adhered to. Furthermore, as part of the on-going monitoring process, Framont will re-evaluate the portfolio to ensure it is still in line with the client’s needs. It also monitors and reviews investment strategies so as to ensure that such strategies are still efficient with respect to risk and return.

Revision

The selected strategies are regularly tested to guarantee that they continue to be effective in terms of risk and profit. This can include prompt revision of the portfolio’s composition to ensure its profile remains compatible with its initial objectives.
