Rebalance schedule

The Waverton Asset Allocation Committee meet every six weeks and a rebalance at asset allocation level may follow that meeting if a change in asset allocation is recommended by the Committee.

The portfolio manager may also decide to rebalance the asset allocation on an ad hoc basis to bring the asset class weightings to the Waverton recommended levels.  This will be on an occasional basis and may follow, for example, a period of strong equity markets which have driven our equity weightings significantly above the level recommended by the Waverton Asset allocation Committee.

In terms of the underlying holdings, these are held within the four OEIC structure and are constantly reviewed and, where necessary, sold or rebalanced according to the Waverton outlook and our judgement of the prospects for the underlying holding.


The Waverton annual management charge (AMC) is 0.4% per annum. This is not subject to VAT.
