Our Company Myddleton Croft was established in 2006. Since that time we have received excellent support from professional introducers and combined with solid investment performance have substantially increased our funds under management. We have an experienced team to ensure that we always meet the high standards of service our clients and their advisers expect. Our Approach As discretionary investment managers we believe it is important to ensure that clients portfolios reect their attitude to risk. We place emphasis on the preservation of capital and apply our experience and expertise to achieve returns commensurate with each clients risk tolerance. We begin by taking a long term view on the economic trends inuencing global nancial markets and this frames the strategic core holdings in which we invest. We can then add smaller tactical investments as they arise. Our in-depth research generates ideas which are subject to real-time internal discussions no waiting for an investment committee to meet and make a decision so if we spot an opportunity we can move quickly to take advantage. Similarly if we need to sell a holding we can do so swiftly. We also make full use of the research available to us because whilst we may not always agree with other analysts views we need to know what they are thinking. We have the independence of thought to ensure that we need never follow the herd pursuing trends we dont believe in in the hope of tracking a pre-determined benchmark at the end of the day the only benchmark that really matters is client satisfaction. Bespoke Discretionary Management We will take on the responsibility for all investment decisions taking into consideration the clients attitude to riskcapacity for loss and the objective of the portfolio be it income capital growth or a mix of the two. We will consider the clients tax situation any individual investment preferences they may feel strongly about for example ethical and social issues and ensure that all of this is done in the most cost-eective way possible. We take the view that we are investing for the medium to long term and therefore could hold an investment for up to fourve years. This would vary depending on the investments price valuation and changing economic conditions. Once we have approved an investment we allocate a weighting within the portfolio subject to each clients mandate and risk tolerance. We keep the number of investments down to around 20 holdings which enables us to be exible and means that all holdings make a meaningful contribution to the overall performance. We practice true diversication analysing all asset classes and selecting what best ts our investment outlook at any time. We look at risk and return together and assess whether a new investment brings lownegative correlation to existing assets thereby reducing the portfolios risk level. Once in place the portfolio will be monitored on a daily basis and immediate action taken should circumstances change. We provide a full reporting service to include half-yearly valuations a tax-year end consolidated tax voucher and CGT report where applicable together with regular newsletters.

We oer a range of six risk rated model portfolios on various platforms.
