The proposition is fully integrated into FE Analytics and is designed to empower advisers by providing clear jargon free reporting that can be passed onto the end investor.

Countless advisers know Morningstar as a leading provider of independent investment research, but less realise Morningstar Investment Management Group manages more than US$207 billion in assets under management and advisement (at 30 September 2018).

In fact, Morningstar Investment Management Europe, through its Managed Portfolio unit, creates investment solutions that combine award-winning research and global resources with proprietary Morningstar data.

Drawing from their global resources, Morningstar use objective research from Morningstar to create a range of portfolio options for clearly defined risk profiles. Each portfolio is built for the long term and managed with a keen eye on risk. Morningstar combine risk profiling, renowned asset-allocation research, shrewd investment selection and professional investment expertise in their Morningstar Managed Portfolios.

  • Active portfolios use a valuation-driven asset allocation and active management to deliver outcomes. They span equities, fixed-income and alternative investments, providing exposure to a broad range of return drivers that can be weighted according to Morningstar’s expectations for risk and returns.
  • Income portfolios are intended to provide a stable income in the context of attractive risk-adjusted returns. By focusing on income stability (not just the current yield), Morningstar’s service can provide realistic and risk-aligned income portfolios you can use as part of a long-term investment plan for your clients.
  • Passive portfolios are the purest reflection of Morningstar’s asset-allocation strategy. Because of their straightforward composition, passive investments do not face the same possibility of investment style drift as vehicles under active management. Morningstar’s passive series features exact expressions of their asset-allocation targets for each risk level.

Morningstar also support financial advisers in a myriad of ways. Together, Morningstar’s platform-based discretionary portfolios can help enhance your investment offerings, strengthen client relationships and streamline your business. Morningstar’s ambition is to bring your clients the best of both worlds: a plan that you’ve tailored to their goals with the advantages of professional portfolio management.

Finally, Morningstar’s portfolios are supported by access to Morningstar’s risk tolerance questionnaire, regular detailed reports and a dedicated adviser support team.
