Suggestus is funded by the investment management community to enable you to make more informed decisions more quickly and more easily, backed by a leading investment consultancy practice with over 20 years of experience with private clients, charities and their advisers.
If you are not professional wealth adviser (an independent financial adviser, wealth planner, lawyer, accountant or professional trustee), we cannot allow public access to manager specific data for regulatory reasons, i.e. we cannot give investment advice without a formal contractual arrangement. If you are an investment manager, you can by all means become part of the community but we cannot let you see other manager’s information for obvious reasons, industrial espionage is generally frowned upon!
Yes, we collect the performance data net of investment manager’s fees & charges so you can see the true average client experience. We only use actual client portfolio returns in the calculation of the Indices.
We can't tell you the exact asset allocation because the Indices are risk-based i.e. how much return has a manager given you for a given level of risk (volatility). We don’t collect the details of precisely where managers invest for each portfolio purely because average asset allocation, or currency allocation for that matter is effectively meaningless. It implies that every portfolio invests in a bit of everything from cash, equities and bonds, to more alternative things like commodities, gold, property, derivatives, fine wine, art etc., when this is far from reality.
What we can tell you is the asset allocation we have inferred using optimisation techniques. This shows what you potentially could have invested in to replicate the performance of the PCI.
Unfortunately not. We do not publish manager league tables, or release individual managers PCI or ACI numbers. The main reason is that we have merely undertaken some analysis on some data; it is not “ours” to distribute. You can find contact details for each contributing manager in the respective Contributing Managers pages after logging in to Suggestus. Details can also be found at the back of the quarterly published reports.
An excellent question! We love data and meeting new people of course. Email us at email@example.com and we can have a chat. As a general guide, submitting your Due Diligence information and client/model/fund/etc. performance data is free; getting our analysis typically attracts a (modest) fee.
We could, but it depends on your requirements, objectives, restrictions, situations, preferences, and a whole host of other factors, not least what you consider “best”. Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see if we can help.

The IMI (Investment Management Industry) love these TLAs (Three Letter Acronyms), we’ve jotted down a non-exhaustive glossary beginning with our favourites:
