How does our advisory stockbroking service work?

With our advisory stockbroking service, we aim to build a lasting relationship with you in order to provide you with quality investment ideas based firmly on your personal objectives, attitude to risk and level of knowledge. Then, periodically, we will help you assess your investments to make sure they are still suitable for you.

We begin by carrying out a full suitability assessment. Armed with this important information, our stockbrokers can ensure the advice they give you is appropriately tailored to your individual needs and circumstances.

We also use a third-party risk analysis tool to add an extra layer of governance to our risk management framework. Our aim is to give you the peace of mind that comes with working with an experienced stockbroker while allowing you to stay in control of your investments.

How will my stockbroker provide me with ideas?

Our advice is based on top-quality multi-asset research by our industry-leading teams. We use a committee-based approach to drive our investment process, with each committee focusing on a specific asset class.

Our investment process comprises 70 experienced individuals drawn from around the group who monitor and oversee our approved investment lists. They use our latest in-house research as well as other trustworthy external research.

We also have the competitive advantage of using Quest®, Canaccord Genuity’s proprietary analytical tool, which is only licensed to institutional investors.

How can I check my investments?

You will receive a clearly laid-out valuation report each quarter with a market commentary from our Chief Investment Officer, either by post or online, the choice is yours.

You can also view your account online at any time, no matter where you are, through our easy-to-use Wealth Online portal and app, including your investments, statements and historical valuations.

I have worked in the wealth management industry for over 30 years, joining CGWM when they acquired Collins Stewart in 2012. My role predominately consists of advising on and managing various client accounts including charities, trusts and high net worth individuals. I am fortunate to work in a business which is based upon fostering long term relationships built on trust. With a clear understanding of my clients’ investment objectives and risk tolerance, I endeavour to deliver both excellent service and investment performance for my clients. I am a longstanding member of the Closed Ended Fund Committee and am closely involved in the analysis of trusts, their strategy, management and, not least, performance. I am a Senior Investment Director and Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment.
