Ascendia's Portfolio Managment Values
No exotic instruments, complex strategies, leverage, or illiquid assets
Unlike other investment management companies, our financial consulting firm simply does not believe financial portfolio management needs to use complex trading strategies, leverage, or exotic instruments to derive a good solid investment outcome. It is just not necessary.
Our investment portfolios use a combination of traditional ASX listed assets and other liquid managed assets. This means you retain liquidity and transparency, and you are able to implement asset allocation changes with ease. Even in times of market stress, this will mean that you retain access to capital.
The vast majority of the portfolio consists of direct assets for the cost, transparency and liquidity benefits that these provide. As part of our investment and portfolio management, we will however, also use a small number of managed investments that provide us with access to a very specific investment manager skill that is very difficult or impossible to replicate directly, or access to wholesale markets that our firm cannot access directly.
Direct Ownership & Portability
All the underlying investments are held in the name of you, the investor. This enables individual investors to participate in plans such as shareholder discount schemes or shareholder purchase offers etc. This direct ownership also means that you retain the flexibility to move your share portfolio at some time in the future without selling down your holdings and crystallizing capital gains. This means you have portability of your investment assets.
