Suggestus

At Suggestus, we don’t run or manage money; we do what we say and mean what we say; we like new ideas; we like learning, analysing, informing, and data. Lots of data.

Suggestus was launched in 2011 to meet the needs of professional wealth advisers and their clients, who make use of discretionary investment managers. In partnership with the investment management community, we are striving to address the issues of transparency in our industry.

Suggestus for Investors

Suggestus is home to the ARC Private Client Indices, an industry leading performance guide. Gain a unique insight into the actual returns being generated by investment managers for their discretionary private client portfolios.

Private Client Indices

The four PCI performance series are based on real performance numbers provided by participating investment managers.

The PCI provide an accurate reflection of the actual returns that a private client should expect for a given risk appetite. This approach leaves investment managers free to use any and all investment strategies, vehicles and structures in the pursuit of the maximum return per unit of realised volatility.

Private Client Indices

For £25, you can securely enter your data and receive a report within seconds that tells you if your performance has been good, bad or indifferent compared to an appropriate peer group.

Generate a comprehensive report (Portfolio Peer Review or PPR) based on your portfolio compared to thousands of professionally managed portfolios from over 50 investment management firms. From the information you give us, we will work out the appropriate risk profile for the portfolio.

Risk means many things but in this case, we are looking at the volatility, or how much the value of a portfolio fluctuates over time. This measure is essential in making sure you are comparing your portfolio with the right peer group.
