About Us
The MitonOptimal Group is an owner managed business that specialises in providing a range of investment management solutions for financial advisors and
fiduciary professionals. Our business has steadily grown, since its establishment in 2002, to approximately US$750m in assets under management.

As a team of highly experienced investment professionals, we understand the complex financial landscapes that financial advisors manage for their clients and are
cognisant of the level of care and attention that is required when considering the suitability of appointing a discretionary fund manager.

With over 50 staff across offices in Guernsey, the Isle of Man, Singapore and South Africa we offer a global perspective and appreciate the importance of cultural as
well as financial aspects of managing wealth.
Whether your clients are seeking wealth preservation for legacy planning purposes, capital growth or income generating portfolios you will have direct access to the
key decision makers that sit on our Investment Management Committee (IMC).

We take a long-term approach to managing portfolios and invest time and care into building long-lasting relationships with our partners and clients through face-to-
face meetings, regular correspondence and open lines of communication.

Risk Rated Models
Low Risk the lowest risk portfolio option that is available, is designed for investors that are primarily concerned with
MMP preserving capital with the investment objective of achieving growth of CPI +2% in the long term. MMP 1 is a suitable
1 solution for clients wishing to minimise risk.
Current Asset Allocation: 8% Cash; 30% Fixed Interest; 35% Alternative Strategies; 17% Equities; and 10% Property.

Low to Moderate Risk the portfolio has been developed for conservative investors who are seeking risk adjusted long
MMP term returns of CPI +3% . MMP 2 is ideally suited for risk adverse investors and is a useful model for trustees to utilise.
2 Current Asset Allocation: 6% Cash; 25% Fixed Interest; 30% Alternative Strategies; 29% Equities; and 10% Property.

MMP Moderate Risk the portfolio has been built for investors that wish to gain exposure to a broad range of assets targeting
returns of CPI +4%. MMP 3 is appropriate for investors that are looking for a balanced approach to risk management.
Current Asset Allocation: 5% Cash; 20% Fixed Interest; 20% Alternative Strategies; 45% Equities; and 10% Property.

MMP Moderate to High Risk the portfolio has been established for clients with a moderate appetite for risk with a target return
of CPI +5%. MMP 4 is a suitable option for investors that are searching for higher levels of capital growth.
4 Current Asset Allocation: 4% Cash; 13% Fixed Interest; 15% Alternative Strategies; 55% Equities; and 13% Property.

MMP High Risk this portfolio is for risk seeking investors looking to maximise returns at a level of CPI +6%. MMP 5 is our
5 most aggressive strategy with a higher allocation to equities market conditions may have a significant impact on returns.
Current Asset Allocation: 2% Cash; 8% Fixed Interest; 10% Alternative Strategies; 70% Equities; and 10% Property.

In some instances advisors may wish to consider a blend of portfolios, for example allocating a proportion of funds to MMP 1 and MMP 4 could
provide additional wealth planning options for clients with multiple objectives.

The MitonOptimal IMC determines and reviews the asset allocations for each model on a monthly basis.
