Wealth Management by Austyn Smith

Each year the banks and investment houses are asked for their predictions for the FTSE 100 or the S&P 500. These ‘expert predictions’ have been far from accurate!

At Austyn Smith we have a different view. We believe that no one can predict markets, which is why we plan ‘in advance’, to protect your downside.

Austyn’s work on risk reduction strategies has been highlighted by the prestigious CityWire Wealth Management magazine in July 2010, where Austyn Smith was featured on the front cover.

Managing risk is more important than just chasing the next big thing, and asset allocation in itself has been attributed to giving over 90% of returns.

Therefore successful investing starts and ends with successful asset allocation.

If asset allocation is too concentrated, even if it’s the so called ‘best fund in the world’, everything in the portfolio does the same thing. When you are managing risk you don’t want that to happen, you want there to be a buffer, a safety valve, with offsetting themes that bring true balance.

Clients say that ‘the difference’ we make is;

  • Relationship. We get to know you well and many clients have become friends.
  • Consistency. We follow through on what we say we will do.
  • Stability. We provide peace of mind through wealth preservation.


The value of your investment can fall as well as rise and you may get back less than your original investment. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
