The value of investments and any income from them can fall and you may get back less than you invested.


Having succesfully worked with advisers for many years we know that some questions frequently crop up about our Discretionary Fund Management (DFM) solution and Managed Portfolio Service (MPS). We have provided answers to some of them below, but if the information you need is not on this page, our Business Development team will be pleased to talk to you and provide you with our due diligence documents. 

Yes, we can facilitate both initial and ongoing adviser charging payments for advisers, subject to receipt of an adviser charging agreement. For new SIPP and offshore bond accounts, please contact one of our Business Development team to discuss the options available to you. Our quarterly management fees are levied and shown separately from any adviser charges in client statements. The adviser must instruct us as to whether VAT should be applied to any of the adviser charging payments.

We work with various risk profiling firms, such as DT, Finametrica, Evalue and Synpatic to help advisers assess the most suitable portfolio within our Managed Portfolio Service for each client. For our Discretionary Fund Management service, our investment managers will work with you to ensure that the construction of any client portfolio meets your specific risk requirements.

Our Managed Portfolio Service portfolios can be accessed on the following external platforms: Aegon, Ascentric, Aviva, Fusion, James Hay, Novia, Nucleus, Standard Life, Standard Life Elevate, Transact and Zurich.

Our bespoke portfolio service can be used through an extensive range of wrappers, including, but not limited to, those offered by: @SIPP, AJ Bell, AXAWealth, Barnett Waddingham, Capita, James Hay.

We submit portfolio performance data for both our Discretionary Fund Management service and MPS to ARC (Asset Risk Consultants) on a quarterly basis. This enables advisers to assess our investment performance credentials against our peer group, over varying time periods across the complete risk spectrum.

We also provide monthly factsheets for all of our Managed Portfolio Service model portfolios, which include performance data.

Yes, we have an online system called MyBrewin which can be accessed here that enables advisers to view all their clients’ portfolios. For further information on this service, please contact our Business Development team.

For both our Discretionary Fund Management service and our Managed Portfolio Service, we use a clean, simple and transparent fee structure that does not have any transactional commissions or dealing charges. We believe this provides complete transparency to all parties and aligns the aims of both the underlying client and investment manager.

Our continued primary focus is on building strong, long-term strategic relationships with professional intermediary firms. In this regard, our Discretionary Fund Management service charging structure has been devised to benefit those firms that have demonstrated a significant commitment to working with Brewin Dolphin. We have therefore put in place a ‘partnership’ discount mechanism for those firms that have introduced portfolios with a combined total value in excess of £10m. Details of our rate cards can be obtained by contacting your local Business Development Manager.

We do not have a specific minimum investment level for our Discretionary Fund Management service. We believe this is a decision for the adviser in conjunction with their underlying client. However, our charges for the service carry a minimum fee of £1,000 + VAT per annum. The minimum investment levels for our Managed Portfolio Service are determined by the external platforms they are available on and begin at £2,000. For more information please contact your local Business Development Manager.


We are delighted to have already won 20 awards in the last 2 years, voted for by peers, advisers and clients.
