Recognising the growing demand for outsourcing to Discretionary Fund Managers, the platform allows access to any FCA-registered DFM and has a trading system that allows advisers, clients, DFMs and Wealthtime to work directly together.
We recognise that there is a strong and growing demand in the investment market to outsource the portfolio management process to specialist third party DFMs.
This allows your clients to benefit from expert portfolio management and investment research capabilities enabling you to focus on financial planning and understanding your client’s needs and aspirations.
The choice of DFM and charges paid to them remains an agreement between the client and yourself. However Wealthtime enables advisers and DFMs to use the service in full to the benefit of clients. Our proposition enables DFMs to view a client’s investments online at any time, make investment decisions and carry out transactions for these clients quickly and efficiently, use model portfolios to tailor investment solutions to suit clients and be remunerated in a fair and transparent way directly from the Cash Facility

See below to find out more about our recommended providers.

Wealthtime can work with any FCA authorised DFM that you may wish to appoint, however we have partnered with a number of DFMs who you may wish to use. Click on the drop down sections below to find out more information and further details on the services they can provide.

Investment risk information

The value of investments, and the income from them, may fall or rise and investors may get back less than they invested.

Some funds invest in emerging markets which can be more volatile than more established markets. As a result the value of your investment may rise or fall.

Investments in smaller companies may be more volatile than investments in well-established blue chip companies.

The Vanguard LifeStrategy® Funds may invest in Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) shares.

ETF shares can be bought or sold only through a broker. Investing in ETFs entails stockbroker commission and a bid- offer spread which should be considered fully before investing.

Funds investing in fixed interest securities carry the risk of default on repayment and erosion of the capital value of your investment and the level of income may fluctuate. Movements in interest rates are likely to affect the capital value of fixed interest securities. Corporate bonds may provide higher yields but as such may carry greater credit risk increasing the risk of default on repayment and erosion of the capital value of your investment. The level of income may fluctuate and movements in interest rates are likely to affect the capital value of bonds.

The Funds may use derivatives in order to reduce risk or cost and/or generate extra income or growth. The use of derivatives could increase or reduce exposure to underlying assets and result in greater fluctuations of the Fund’s net asset value. A derivative is a financial contract whose value is based on the value of a financial asset (such as a share, bond, or currency) or a market index.
