Industry recognition

We’re also very proud when our clients and industry peers recognise our achievements with awards and high ratings. These are some of the most recent.

Defaqto 5 star ratings for DFM Bespoke, DFM MPS Direct and DFM MPS on Platform

Defaqto is a financial information and technology company that provides ratings and analysis of financial products and services. Its discretionary fund manager (DFM) ratings provide clients with an independent evaluation of different DFMs in the market. These ratings are based on a variety of factors, such as the DFM's investment approach, performance track record, cost structure, client service, and risk management capabilities. By assessing these factors, Defaqto aims to help clients make more informed decisions when selecting a DFM that aligns with their objectives.

This is the twelfth year in a row that we have achieved 5 Star Ratings for our bespoke service and our direct managed portfolio service (MPS), and the ninth year running for our MPS on Platform service (including ratings achieved by Psigma Investment Management).

These ratings outline our services as some of the highest quality offerings on the market. We are proud that the high quality and comprehensive propositions that we offer our clients have been recognised by Defaqto.
