International: Dedicated portfolio management

Exchange control relaxation has provided high net worth individuals with far greater flexibility, giving you the opportunity to diversify investment risk and manage your assets on a more global scale.

We have the expertise to help you to meet your offshore investment strategy by providing an end-to-end solution to optimise your foreign investment allowance, obtain the relevant official clearances and achieve your investment objectives in a single, highly professional and seamless process.

International investments can be managed in conjunction with your existing local investment strategy, by the same portfolio manager, to ensure the overall investment strategy is dealt with holistically.

History

A parallel offshore business was established by Melville Douglas in 1998. This was merged with Standard Bank Jersey Stockbroking to form a new entity, Standard Bank International Investments Limited (SBIIL), which is a 100%-owned subsidiary of the Standard Bank Group. It offers customised discretionary portfolio management services via a platform with Standard Bank Jersey. SBIIL is registered with and regulated by the Jersey Financial Services Commission. SBIIL provides international investment management services to mutual funds and Wealth and Investment clients and is one of the core initiatives of Wealth and Investment, a division of Standard Bank.

The combined investment house, operating under the Melville Douglas brand, collectively manages over £2.4 billion of client assets, and blends the skills of over 30 investment professionals.

Our discretionary offering

The client selects the base or reporting currency; we manage portfolios in the key major currencies of United States dollars (USD), Great Britain pound (GBP) and Euro (EUR). Mandates are 'global', providing exposure to assets across a range of countries and regions. Diversification away from the base currency would normally be provided via exposure to high growth (equity) or high yield assets as opposed to low yield/low growth (cash) assets.
