My WealthPartner Bespoke

Discretionary investment, tailored to you

Suited to former Partners who no longer need to maintain their investments within PwC’s independence rules.

The Bespoke service provides a truly personal and customised investment service to help protect and grow your wealth, whilst also accommodating your circumstances, objectives, attitude and capacity for risk. Via your own investment manager, you will have access to a highly qualified and seasoned investment professional with experience of guiding clients and their portfolios through different market conditions. Investment managers are supported by our in-house dedicated global securities research team, and by our experts in tax-efficient and specialist investments.

This service can be used alongside and in addition to the Financial Review and Advice services.

Benefits of the Bespoke service

  • Tailored – your investment portfolio, built entirely for you to meet your needs and to reflect your own preferences towards ethical matters, target income yield, tax crystallisation, trusts and timing commitments when investing from cash

  • Active and responsive – ongoing active investment management via your own highly qualified and seasoned investment professional so your portfolio can respond to market and economic conditions

  • PwC knowledge – your Close Brothers investment manager will understand PwC, Partners, former Partners and your needs
