How we manage our investment portfolios

Flying Colours Life (FCL) Investment Management builds discretionary managed portfolios with a clear plan. The industry we work in can sometimes feel like it relies on mystics in cloud covered mountains or secretive geniuses working with complex systems. We believe this mystique is unnecessary and may hide a confusion on the part of the fund managers. What is certain is that it often leads to disappointing outcomes for investors. The 25 years of experience the FCL Investment Management team has in the industry, has proved to us that there is a clear, simple and consistent approach we can take for the benefits of our clients. Of course, we can’t control the ups and downs of the global economy, but we can always tilt the balance in your favour and put you in the best position to do well. 

We invest in a single, core approach...

Our website offers information about investing, but not personal advice or a recommendation to invest in our discretionary managed portfolio service. If you're not sure which investments are right for you, please request advice from a Flying Colours Life financial adviser. It is also important to remember that investing is for the longer term (minimum of 5 years) and that investments can go up and down in value, so you could get back less than you invested.
