Clients with more than £2m to invest can take advantage of our segregated fund management service. We provide clients with two alternatives. The first option is a total fund management mandate under which clients outsource all of their investment needs to OLIM. We work with you to define an appropriate asset allocation mix as well as managing individual holdings. The second option is specialist investment management under which clients appoint OLIM to manage a portion of their assets. Clients choosing this option normally ask for a dedicated UK equity portfolio to gain maximum exposure to our expertise in this area. All segregated clients receive written reports at quarterly intervals. We will also meet you regularly to discuss the progress of your fund and future investment policy. The annual management charge for segregated portfolios is 0.5%.

Value and Income Trust plc currently conducts its affairs so that the shares and debentures issued by it can be recommended by independent financial advisers to ordinary retail investors in accordance with the FCA's rules in relation to non-mainstream investment products and intends to continue to do so for the foreseeable future. The Value and Income Trust's shares and debentures are excluded from the FCA's restrictions which apply to non-mainstream investment products because they are shares and debentures in a UK listed investment trust. A full list of excluded securities can be found on the AIC website.
