Advance Portfolio report

The Advance Portfolio Report provided by FE shows a valuation of current holdings, an overview of transactions and performance analysis of a client’s portfolio. The report has been designed in partnership with FE, who use their expertise to process and supplement the underlying data. The report is designed to support your review meetings with your client and allows you to select from a range of reporting periods.

The report includes the following sections:

  • Commentary – this is an optional section where free text can be entered if required, e.g. an agenda for an upcoming meeting, a reminder of information required for the meeting, a reminder of action points from a previous meeting, a house view of the market, etc.
  • Portfolio summary – shows an overview of transactions by account and across the portfolio as a whole.
  • Valuation of each account held – this includes a breakdown of each asset held, a valuation vs contribution graph and graphical representation of transactions during the reporting period.
  • Investment Account gains, losses, dividends, interest and costs.
  • Portfolio performance – a graphical representation of time weighted performance vs a benchmark.
  • Portfolio breakdown – shows cash vs invested assets holdings, top ten holdings as well as sector, region and asset allocation holdings.

When produced, the report can be printed and/or saved to your desktop.

To access the report you first select the portfolio. The report can be generated by clicking on the report icon on the portfolio search screen or by clicking on the Advance Portfolio Report link when you are on your client’s Portfolio dashboard.

Further information can found through the Advance platform.

Portfolio Scan

The Portfolio Scan tool can be used to analyse a generic portfolio for research purposes or a client specific portfolio (that may have been ‘pushed’ through automatically from the Advance Platform).

The tool is able to scan (x-ray) any combination of the following asset types and compare these against a selected benchmark over a chosen time period:

  • Life and pension funds
  • Mutual funds (units trusts and OEICs)
  • FCA regulated offshore funds
  • Hedge funds
  • Exchange traded assets
  • Investments trusts
  • Equities

After the relevant percentage weightings have been input, a detailed independent report can be generated to show:

  • Portfolio composition
  • Top 10 holdings across the portfolio
  • Asset, sector and region allocation
  • Portfolio versus benchmark performance (discrete and cumulative)
  • Stock overlap (to help identify which specific stocks are held in more than one asset)

The report can be printed and/or saved to your desktop.

Model Portfolio Analyser

The Model Portfolio Analyser tool provided by FE plots the risk and return of a fund/portfolio of funds and offers the ability to compare this against one or more model portfolios (including your own) that are available for investment on the Advance Platform. This enables you to identify:

  • Whether your client is exposed to too much investment risk for their expected return or
  • If they could achieve a better return for the investment risk they are willing to take

The outcome could support your recommendation to invest into a risk-rated model portfolio, if that was the most appropriate advice for your client.

An independent report can then be generated for printing and/or saving to your desktop.
