Investing internationally can help reduce fluctuations in your portfolio’s value because of the differences in economic and market cycles among countries around the globe. International investments also allow access to high-potential sectors not well represented in the local equity market, such as technology and industrials.
Local investors are able to buy and sell listed international equities in the same way they execute trades on the local market. Our international equity trader can buy and sell overseas-listed equities on most major exchanges, on your behalf, on an execution-only basis. Your international trading account also offers an automatic money market sweep feature and online access through a secured internet service where you can not only view balances but also execute your own trades.
Clearing through Pershing LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Bank of New York Mellon Corporation (BNY Mellon) and a member of Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), and Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC), we offer superior safekeeping and execution services. As a client, you will enjoy the best of both worlds: our personalized service and high level of attention to your needs, together with the safety, back-office efficiency and excellent execution capabilities provided by Pershing.

The Customised Investment Portfolios are three (3) investment portfolios comprising USD-denominated exchange traded funds (ETFs) traded on U.S. stock exchanges.
The assets in each portfolio consist primarily of ETFs as a viable option to gain exposure to a diversified index or sub-index. An ETF is an investment vehicle that combines key features of traditional mutual funds and individual stocks. ETFs represent diversified portfolios of securities that track specific indices. Like stocks, they can be bought and sold on an exchange throughout the trading day. While an ETF trades like a stock, the ETF itself may be invested in any asset class such as stocks, bonds, commodities, derivatives or Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs).
Each portfolio has a unique investment objective and the investment advisor employs a strategic asset allocation approach, determining the appropriate asset mix within broad pre-established guidelines for each asset class as set out below:
|Balanced – Income Focus||Balanced – Growth Focus||Growth|
|Objective||Generate a return primarily
through Interest and Dividends
|Generate a return through security
