Our ESG investment solution


Our TAM ESG service provides investors with a range of environmental, social & governance (ESG) portfolios designed to protect and grow their wealth in a socially responsible manner. TAM ESG clients can select an investment portfolio that most closely reflects their investment return objectives and attitude to risk. We offer five risk-graded portfolios that span the risk spectrum from more defensive, lower risk returns, through to higher risk, equity based investment returns.

Multi-asset investing

With a best of breed approach, TAM creates and manages portfolios diversified not only by underlying investment asset and sector, but also by manager and corporate provider.  This is essential to adding value to client portfolios.  Depending on the risk graded portfolio selected, TAM uses OEICS, unit trusts, exchange traded funds and structured products to access a broad range of assets including equities, fixed income, property, commodities, alternative investment and hedge funds.

Our ESG fund portfolios


Defensive
ESG Defensive seeks to generate modest returns higher than cash in the bank over the medium term with potential for consistent though constrained capital growth.  The portfolio has a more defensive approach to equity exposure compared to ESG Cautious - typically comprising of 15% equity and 85% non-equity - though weightings may deviate within set parameters, allowing our managers to react to market conditions.

Cautious
ESG Cautious seeks to generate modest capital growth higher than bond based returns over the short to medium term by employing a more cautious investment strategy than ESG Balanced.  The portfolio will have a modest approach to equity exposure - typically comprising of 35% equity and 65% non-equity - though weightings may deviate within set parameters, allowing our managers to react to market conditions.

Balanced
ESG Balanced seeks to generate capital growth over the medium to longer term, with the aim of riding out short term fluctuations in value.  The portfolio will have a more balanced approach to equity exposure compared to ESG Growth - typically comprising of 50% equity and 50% non-equity - though weightings may deviate within set parameters, allowing managers to react to market conditions.
 


Growth
ESG Growth seeks to generate higher capital growth over the medium to long-term by employing a more dynamic investment strategy.  The portfolio will have a higher exposure to equities compared to ESG Balanced - typically comprising of 70% equity and 30% non-equity - though weightings may deviate within set parameters, allowing managers to react to market conditions.

Adventurous
ESG Adventurous seeks to generate strong capital growth over the longer term and can experience frequent and higher levels of volatility than ESG Growth.  The portfolio will have a large exposure to equities - typically comprising of 85% equity and 15% non-equity - though weightings may deviate within set parameters, allowing managers to react to market conditions.



The diagram is for illustrative purposes only. The value of investments, and the income from it, may go down as well as up and may fall below the amount initially invested. Weightings may deviate from these levels at the Investment Team's discretion whilst staying within specific guidelines, so the above asset allocation is intended as a guide only.
