Standard Life Investments

The team behind MyFolio

At Standard Life Investments, we are committed to a team approach which, in our opinion, provides potential for the best outcomes.

At the heart of MyFolio, we believe our fund solutions team, which is responsible for fund selection, offers us a real competitive advantage. It is comprised of highly experienced portfolio managers and fund analysts. The team operates a robust framework in its approach to fund selection based on “the five P’s” – philosophy, process, people, performance and price. The team is headed by Bambos Hambi who has been managing fund-of-fund and discretionary portfolios since 1978.

In addition to the fund solutions team, tactical asset allocation (where we look to take advantage of short-term investment opportunities) within the funds is undertaken by Standard Life Investments’ multi-asset investing team. The team is more than 30 strong and offers expertise in economics, fundamental, thematic and quantitative analysis, actuarial insight, risk management and fund management.

We also engage Moody's Analytics – a world-leading expert in risk-modelling solutions in the financial services industry – to help select the mix of asset classes that we believe will generate the highest expected investment return over the longer term within the given level of risk in each fund.
