WRAP FUNDS

MANAGING CLIENT’S UNIT TRUST INVESTMENTS AT THE CLICK OF A BUTTON



Today’s ever-changing investment landscape requires active management of clients’ investments. This is made possible by the introduction of the Warwick suite of Wrap Funds.

WHAT IS A WRAP FUND?

A wrap fund is a collection of underlying investments, such as unit trusts, that are administrated as a single offering to our clients.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A WRAP FUND FOR OUR CLIENTS?

ADMINISTRATIVE SIMPLICITY

Whenever Accorn makes allocation changes to the Wrap Fund models, the client’s investment will be automatically changed without action or instruction from the client, ensuring that all clients invested into Wrap Funds are aligned to the most recent house view of Accorn Investment Management and that the client’s investments remain within their predetermined risk profile and objectives.

OWNERSHIP

The investor remains the unit holder of each underlying unit trust included in the Wrap Fund model.

COST EFFICIENCY

No switching fees will apply when Accorn makes allocation changes to the Wrap Fund model.

WHAT ARE THE LEGAL AND PRACTICAL ASPECTS OF A WRAP FUND?

Wrap Funds are not unit trust funds and are not unitised. They are simply collections of unit trust funds managed as a collective.

Where any changes are made to the underlying funds included in our discretionary Wrap Funds, this may result in a Capital Gains Tax (CGT) liability for the investor, Accorn always seeks to minimise the impact.

Changes to the models are limited to the least number deemed necessary to achieve the long-term objective of the client. There is no CGT liability on retirement funds held in Wrap Funds.

The investor can, therefore, see from their investment statement which underlying unit trusts their investments are exposed to.
