Independent Global Investment Research
We publish Investment Ideas that are generated by the Enigma Investment Radar Regular. We cover asset allocation, equity regions, sectors, industries, stocks, currencies and commodities. All the Investment Ideas are backed up with the data-driven reasons (fundamental value and/or market trends).
We provide equity-only and multi-asset Model Portfolios which can be used by clients as a framework for implementing their own portfolios, using their own choice of stocks and funds. Alternatively, we can advise on the selection of Exchange Traded Funds to implement Model Portfolios.
