The Armytage AAM
The Armytage AAM wealth management service is an established and successful service that has been managing money on a private client basis for over 10 years. While your financial advisor is there to advise you on areas of your personal finances, it is the responsibility of a wealth manager to solely manage your portfolio of investments. It is therefore extremely important that the person managing your money is a ‘money manager’ with the correct level of knowledge and experience along with the right qualifications to do so.
360 Financial have recognized the importance of having portfolios managed by money management professionals and have thus established a relationship with Armytage AAM in a bid to offer their clients access to top portfolio management advice. Through the established strategic relationship between 360 Financial and Armytage AAM, 360 have managed to package a unique service offering that combines diligent financial advice with professional top level portfolio management.
The Armytage AAM Methodology & Philosophy
Armytage AAM manage money across a wide range of investment styles for clients who have different tolerances to risk. In each case we believe our role is not to avoid risk altogether, but rather to understand the relationship between risk and reward and to manage risk appropriately, relative to the objectives of the portfolio and the client. It is because of this that our whole methodology starts with the client’s objectives, understanding those objectives, and then tailoring the portfolio accordingly. We select investments and construct our portfolios in a disciplined manner, with an emphasis on identifying and controlling risk, avoiding speculation and by ensuring our portfolios are appropriately diversified. By using an active management approach and reviewing client portfolios on an ongoing basis we make sure that the methodology ends just as it started, with the client’s objectives in mind.
Actively Managed Portfolio Construction
Once the overall client investment objective & risk profile have been determined the approach used to determine the suggested allocation of a portfolio between the various asset classes is essentially a “top down” approach using “tactical asset allocation”. The philosophy is firmly grounded in the belief that asset allocation is the most important factor in overall portfolio performance. Through individual country macro economic analysis (looking at economic growth, money supply, growth, inflation, unemployment, interest rates etc) the most attractive asset classes and regions are selected. The final fund selection stage involves quantitative and qualitative analysis of the funds within the best asset classes and regions already determined, leaving us with a selection of the best performing funds in the regions and asset classes offering the best opportunities.

Jupiter was established in 1985 as a specialist boutique and has since grown to be one of the most successful and respected investment management groups in the UK. We currently manage more than US$ 31.9bn* worth of assets,
spread across a wide range of UK and offshore mutual funds, multi-manager products, hedge funds, institutional
mandates and investment trusts.
For more than 25 years, Jupiter has maintained a reputation
for achieving outperformance across a broad variety of
portfolios specialising in specific markets such as the UK,
Europe, Asia and Emerging Europe, as well as specialist asset
classes such as Socially Responsible Investments (SRI) and
Global Financial Equities.
It is this consistency of performance which has earned Jupiter
over 100 awards** since 2005, including the What Investment
Best Group Award for 2009 and 2010, and the OBSR
Outstanding Investment House Honour for 2009.
In October 2008, Jupiter Unit Trust Managers topped the
prestigious Alpha league table created by business school
EDHEC in conjunction with Europerfomance. The school runs
an annual survey of outperformance for asset management
firms. The company that produces the most ‘alpha’ in a given
year (the excess return of a fund relative to the return of its
benchmark) wins the award. Jupiter came top of the Alpha
League, moving up from second position in 2007. British asset
managers dominated the rankings in the year to June 2008, with
an average alpha frequency of 52% compared to less than 40%
by European counterparts.
In 2007 Jupiter became majority owned by its employees and in
June 2010 Jupiter’s holding company, Jupiter Fund Management
plc, was listed on the London Stock Exchange. At listing a
substantial proportion of our employees owned shares in
Jupiter. We also actively encourage fund managers to invest
their own money into our funds; this means our fund managers’
interests are aligned with those of our clients.
We believe that the key to our continued success is our ability
to attract and retain some of the most talented fund managers
in the business by creating the right culture for them to operate
in, and offering an ownership stake in the business.
With one of the lowest turnovers of key staff in the industry,
we have managed to ensure stability throughout our different
stages of growth. The added benefit of such continuity is a
highly cohesive and stable business culture and team approach
which we believe is intrinsic to maintaining our corporate
identity and of course, creating the fund management stars
of the future.
