Great news for Dimensional fans: Dimensional Model Portfolios now available as a DFM MPS on Parmenion

For financial professionals only

Following Martin’s announcement in November that we’ll be broadening our award-winning Centralised Investment Proposition throughout 2022, we’re delighted to announce the launch of two new discretionary model portfolio solutions.

Dimensional Core Wealth & Dimensional Core Plus Wealth Models – Implemented by Parmenion provides six combinations of equity and fixed income, ranging from 100% fixed income to 100% equity, in 20% increments.

The Core and Core Plus Wealth Models offer a research-driven, systematic framework that emphasises reliable drivers of higher expected returns within equities and fixed income. They are designed by Dimensional Fund Advisors, a leading global systematic asset manager with $679bn assets under management.

The new range reflects Dimensional’s Core Wealth & Core Plus Wealth Models asset allocations with 100% Dimensional funds and carry a competitive annual DFM fee of 6bps.

To date, advisers wanting this option had to implement and manage the models under their own advisory permissions. Now, they are available under Parmenion’s discretionary licence, with our oversight and rebalancing.

That means advisers aligned to the Dimensional approach can now benefit from the efficiency of discretionary management, while our Defaqto Gold rated platform service and 5 star DFM proposition and our proprietary technology significantly reduces time spent on admin.

Past performance is not an indicator of future returns.

There’s no guarantee the models or funds will meet their objectives. The value of an investment can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed. Investors could get back less than they pay in.
