• OVERVIEW
    NEBA Model Portfolio Solutions


    Investment Objective
    NEBA’s Model Portfolio Solution will divide your capital investment into a range of building block UCITS Funds. The percentage of your capital suggested for each fund will be in line with your attitude to investing. (CLICK the portfolios to the RIGHT to see what allocation you should have in each Fund)

    These UCITS Funds target cash plus returns, meaning the investment portfolio strategy has an absolute benchmark and objective. Each building block fund brings exposure to different asset classes and strategies meaning overall your portfolio is invested in a wide range of investments to improve diversification and smooth out investment returns. Given that the model portfolio strategy targets cash plus returns over a full market cycle, many of the investments are less correlated to stock markets and their returns are not driven by the same investment conditions.

    These UCITS Funds can also be invested into individually or you can use the recommended allocation to each Fund depending on your investment attitude. e.g. Adventurous, Balanced, Cautious etc…..

  • ADVENTUROUS
    ADVENTUROUS
    Benchmark:
    1M LIBOR +4%
    Target Volatility:
    Global Corporate Bond Index plus 2%
    Stock Market Exposure:
    High
    Suggested Minimum
    Investment Time Horizon:

    7 years

    Suitable for investors willing to accept a much higher level of risk on their investments in return for potentially, higher returns in the longer run. Investors in this strategy are willing to accept what might be significant short-term fluctuations in the value of their investments as a result. They would feel comfortable if their investments fell in value more than 6 months in any one year and might well see this as an ideal time to invest more. This strategy will maintain a higher exposure to more volatile investments, including equities and commodities.

    Investment Time Horizon:

    6 years

    Suitable for investors who are taking income or close to retirement and who seek stable yield and distributions from their portfolio but are willing to forego possible higher returns in interests of preserving capital and less volatility. Returns from this strategy should be slightly better than those available from a high street deposit account over a 5 year period, although the value of the investment could fall as well as rise. Investors in this strategy would feel uncomfortable if their investments rose and fell in value rapidly. This strategy will maintain a broad spread of income-generating investments, including higher exposure to less volatile asset classes such as money market funds, government and index-linked bonds, convertibles, assetbased securities, commercial property etc, to help guard against significant falls in financial markets.

This strategy is designed to balance risk and reward and is appropriate for investors looking for higher returns than those available from a high street over a five year period account and willing to accept a certain amount of fluctuation in the value of their investments as a result. Investors in this strategy would feel uncomfortable if their investments were to fall significantly in value in any one year. This strategy will maintain a broad spread of assets, but with a greater emphasis on equities.

PARALA BALANCED MACRO MULTI ASSET FUND

The Parala Macro Multi-Asset (MMA) portfolio strategies are diversified, actively managed multiasset portfolios, with a focus on providing returns above the industry average benchmark. Parala’s Macro-Alpha Model generates forward-looking rankings for each asset and an optimisation framework to determine optimal weights. Using monthly inputs for both macroeconomic and risk factors it identifies the sensitivity of each asset to changing macro-conditions and their exposure to risk factors. This in turn generates a forward-looking estimate of return, volatility and covariance for each asset allowing the model to determine optimal asset weightings.
