Adviser says...

Paul Coffin, wealth manager at London-based Capital Financial Markets, said: “The performance of the Income fund has not been great over the past six months, but the three- and five-year performance is good. The fees are reasonable and the dividend is in line with what would be expected for an income fund. You may find higher, but this portfolio does also have a good proportion of international holdings, and these often have lower yields.

“The Growth fund has been a good performer over three and five years, and since inception has significantly outperformed the benchmark. Again, fees are reasonable, and it has a good asset allocation in that a significant proportion is committed to global funds where future growth is likely to come from. The list of holdings, at 25, is focused.”
