Tailored Advice

We have a long standing tradition of offering high quality tailored advice to offshore investors.

Our advisers work in partnership with you to understand your unique requirements and develop an investment strategy and advice that best conforms to your financial situation, investment goals and appetite for risk.

What type of advice do we offer?

Universal Asset Management is committed to providing sound and relevant advice in a professional manner. However it is important for our clients to understand the style and types of advice being provided to them.

Decide your level of participation in creating and managing your share portfolio, receiving as much professional advice and support as you require.

Universal Asset Management’s private client advisory business is primarily based on the giving of General Advice.

General Advice is where:
  • Our advisors provide advice to a client where no personal recommendation is made as to the suitability of a product for the individual client.

  • The advice has been prepared without taking into account the client’s investment objectives, financial situation and particular needs.

Our clients should always consider the appropriateness of such General Advice in relation to their own situation.

When your Universal Asset Management advisor gives one of the following
warnings, or something similar, during your conversation with them:

“Our advice is primarily General Advice – it’s up to you to decide if it’s suitable for you.”

“This advice is general; it may not be right for your current circumstances”

then you are receiving General Advice.

Another type of advice which may be provided to a client by us is Personal Advice

Where our advisor provides advice to a client based on considerations of the client’s particular objectives, financial situation or needs.

If a client has not provided us with their up to date investment objectives, financial situation and particular needs, (ie within the past 12 months, or when ever significant events impact on a client’s personal situation) then any advice given to them by us will be considered to be given as General Advice.

Alternatively, you may place an order with No Advice.

This is where the client gives an instruction to an advisor on an execution only basis, and the order is simply placed straight into the market as directed by them.

Should you have any queries about the giving of advice by Universal Asset Management advisors, please do not hesitate to contact your advisor or our compliance officer.

Getting Started

Your financial goals are our priority. Whether you are a private individual, corporate entity, non-profit or institution, we can help you to build and protect your financial assets. Depending on your preference for involvement and your investment objectives, we offer three styles of portfolio management through our Execution Only, Advisory and Discretionary services.

  • 1.

    A consultation will be arranged with a portfolio manager to discuss your requirements.

  • 2.

    We will talk you through our portfolio strategy and a typical allocation of capital.

  • 3.

    Our investment proposal will then include bespoke portfolio recommendations, estimates of capital at risk and annual income, as well as a detailed explanation of how your investment will be managed.

  • 4.

    You will have online access to view portfolio valuations and transactions and we regularly share key market insights and investment ideas aimed at helping you the make the most informed decisions.

You are presumed to fully understand any investment and the associated risks.

We will implement the agreed investment decisions on your behalf.

You will be required to monitor your own investments on an ongoing basis.


You may have limited knowledge of financial markets and the associated risks involved.

You may not have the time to manage your own investments – so you would prefer a professional investment manager to manage your investment decisions (within agreed parameters).

You will be regularly updated on the performance of your investments, as frequently as required.

Our Discretionary Portfolio Service is designed for the investor who does not wish to be actively involved in the day to day decision making process for their investments. The service is particularly suited to high-net-worth individuals, non-profit organisations and family offices.

An experienced Portfolio Manager will work with you initially to build a portfolio that meets your investment objectives and risk profile. Your Portfolio Manager will always act in your best interests by following your stated objectives and restrictions and report back to you as regularly as you wish.

There are two discretionary offerings with a number of investment strategies to choose from, each with a clear objective driving the decisions throughout the process. There are five key elements to our investment process: risk management, macro economic analysis, technical analysis, valuation analysis and bottom up fundamental analysis.
