King & Shaxson Ethical Investing is a division of King & Shaxson which is part of the Phillip Group, a global company that employs over 3,000 people worldwide. The company dates back to 1866, with clients including well-known building societies and local authorities. Today King & Shaxson has evolved into a specialist investment firm focused on securities dealing, asset management, and treasury consultancy.

The ethical team is personally committed to ethical investment. Strictly an investment management business, we do not advise clients and therefore conduct the majority of our business through independent financial advisers. The King & Shaxson Ethical Investing discretionary managed portfolios provide professional investment management for those individuals who would like their investments to reflect their core beliefs and principles. We can enable advisers and clients to articulate and document what ethical means to the individual.

Management of the portfolios includes asset allocation, investment selection, and ongoing monitoring. We manage and review all holdings, and make changes where necessary.

Ethical Model Portfolios

Our ethical model portfolios were launched in February 2010 following demand from our IFA clients for a discretionary ethical product that could be accessed through wraps and platforms. Many IFAs have chosen to play to their strengths of advising customers on the financial needs and providing solutions to these needs, leaving the management of the underlying investments to discretionary fund managers with the capacity and experience to do so.

At King & Shaxson we have partnered with Succession to design five ethical model portfolios tailored to address the ethical concerns raised by clients, each with their own asset allocation and risk profile. As simple as investing into a single fund with the benefit of active management across all asset classes. Our service makes it much easier to look after ethically minded clients. We conduct research into funds on a stock-by-stock basis. We also manage individual equities and bonds and therefore have both the experience and knowledge in a specialist area. We use the services of an ethical researcher to ensure the ethical integrity of our investments. We monitor our model portfolios on a daily basis – being focusing on this one specialist area we can give it the attention that it needs. We also use a broad range of asset classes enabling us to run portfolios across the risk spectrum.
