STEP Isle of Man is delighted to announce the launch of a new member service which will provide trustees and private client practitioners with an understanding of the level of investment performance they should expect.
Trustee Managed Portfolio Indices (TMPI), produced by the Enhance Group Limited, is now available to all STEP members and to explain the new service further STEP Isle of Man is staging a special presentation at the Claremont Hotel in Douglas on Wednesday 20th March. The event will include speakers Russell Bussey, STEP representative, Enhance MPI Group, and Richard Sayers Chief Executive Officer of Enhance Group Limited. Booking in and refreshments will be available from 12.30pm and the hour-long presentation will start at 1pm.
Chairman of STEP Isle of Man Paul Hotchkiss said: “This new service will be of great benefit to all STEP members and we are delighted to welcome our special guest speakers to explain the Trustee Managed Portfolio Indices in greater detail. As a result of this service trustees will be provided with a standard terminology for communicating their tolerance for investment risk with the investment management industry.
“The Indices will also give investment managers a clearer risk benchmark which does not limit their investment process or options. With wide benefits across the financial services industries, the service aims to improve the level of communication and understanding between investment managers, private client practitioners and trustees both in the United Kingdom and internationally.”
