One-decision investing

The world of investing can seem overwhelming. There are dozens of different products and lots of jargon. But it doesn’t need to be this difficult. We’ve tried to make your life easier by providing a one-decision investment opportunity.
CT Global Managed Portfolio Trust is a fund of funds. That means it allows investors access to a fully diversified global portfolio in one step. But crucially, just one decision from you represents dozens of decisions made by investment professionals. They’ve done all the research, analysis, and evaluation for you. We call it: one-decision investing.

Global diversification

By investing in a fund of funds, you can have global diversification in one step. Why is that important? Well, diversification is a big part of investing, and it’s all about lowering risk. The idea of having a diversified portfolio is that if one area isn’t performing very well, hopefully, another area is. You avoid the whole portfolio moving in the same direction at the same time. It’s about not putting all your eggs in one basket, which could be considered a risky move.
With a fund of funds like CT Global Managed Portfolio Trust, you hold a range of funds, giving you exposure to many different regions, sectors, and asset classes (like bonds and equities). This broad diversification aims to deliver attractive returns at a lower risk than investing in fewer assets. With plenty of different exposure, risk is widely spread. And all in just one decision.

Active management

Markets move all the time. Some areas may go up as others go down. These changes can be hard to anticipate, but it’s the job of investment professionals to try. They analyse economics and markets to understand how any movements could affect their holdings. Then, they may make changes accordingly. This is called active investment management, as someone is actively monitoring the portfolio. The idea is to capture compelling investment opportunities as they arise.
CT Global Managed Portfolio Trust is actively managed by Peter Hewitt and his team. Peter has been actively managing investments since the early 1980s and has developed in-depth knowledge and expertise. By actively monitoring the market, he aims to identify the best opportunities available in any asset class, anywhere in the world, at all times. And investors can access that expertise with just one decision.

A flexible investment strategy

The unique feature of CT Global Managed Portfolio Trust is its ability to allow investors to switch between growth and income once a year. The growth strategy aims to increase the value of the original investment, or capital. The income strategy aims to deliver a regular payment. Investors can make this change tax efficiently too (according to current UK tax legislation). It’s tax efficient because there is no capital gains tax due on the conversion between strategies. That means investors can switch without facing immediate tax consequences.

The ability to switch annually means CT Global Managed Portfolio Trust can serve changing needs and preferences. As your growth or income requirements change, so can your strategy. For example, you may begin in the growth strategy as you build your wealth. But as you get closer to retirement, you may want to switch to the income strategy as you start to wind down at work. With just one decision, you can access a flexible investment strategy which suits your changing needs.

Keeping it simple

CT Global Managed Portfolio Trust offers a globally diversified, actively managed portfolio in one step. It’s a low-hassle, flexible approach to investing, where professionals do all the analysis for you. The ability to switch between income and growth means it can suit changing needs and preferences. This fund of funds offers simplicity, flexibility, and experience, all in just one decision.

Investment Risks

The value of your investments and any income from them can go down as well as up and you may not get back the original amount invested. Gearing is used for investment purposes to obtain, increase or reduce exposure to an asset, index or investment. The use of gearing can enhance returns to investors in a rising market, but if the market falls the losses may be greater.
