ACE Rated Funds

Continuous independent monitoring of funds for Asset Consistency and Efficiency relative to the Dynamic Planner Asset and Risk Model to ensure ongoing investment suitability

Business partners together to discuss the business plan at the meeting.

The ACE Ratings methodology is a fund classification scheme which allows financial planners to easily identify those funds which offer the best consistency and efficiency to the Dynamic Planner Asset and Risk Model and help them ensure ongoing investment suitability for their clients.

It saves advisers time and improves efficiencies by providing clear, unbiased ratings through independent and rigorous research of the whole of the UK retail fund market by our experienced analysts.

This provides you and your clients with the confidence that your fund recommendations have met a high standard of due diligence and are more likely to provide better outcomes in the longer term.

“Refreshingly the service does not attempt to ‘analyse’ or forecast, nor to identify skill, but rather to reflect the “Consistency” of a fund; how closely it fits the underlying assumptions of the Dynamic Planner Asset & Risk model, ranked against an appropriately defined peer group”

Graham Bentley, Managing Director, gbi²
