EFFICIENT’S NEW “BEST IN CLASS” STRATEGY

Boutique Investment Partners (BIP), is responsible for selecting appropriate managers for the funds, as well as monitoring the performance of the new fund managers.

As of 1 March 2017, the service charges and performance fees of some of the Efficient portfolios have been reduced, resulting in lower future TERs.
