Discretionary or Non-Discretionary Management

Portfolios are managed on either a Discretionary or a Non-Discretionary basis.

Discretionary management means we make decisions and take action without first referring to you.

Non-Discretionary management means that portfolio recommendations and changes are first referred to you for your approval before action is taken. You maintain control.

Whether Discretionary or Non-Discretionary, we invest and manage in terms of an overall investment mandate approved by you.
