If you haven’t already done so, you’ll need to open a Saxo account .and add the  amount you intend to invest, subject to the minimum amount for each portfolio. Then follow these steps:

  1. Open the SaxoTraderGO platform and click the ‘SaxoSelect’ tab
  2. Click the ‘Invest’ button, next to your chosen portfolio
  3. If this is your first time with SaxoSelect, you’ll need to complete a set of suitability questions specifically for managed portfolios (this is different to an appropriateness test, which relates to self-directed investing)
  4. Open the trade ticket and enter the amount you’d like to invest

No, you don’t. Once you’ve invested in a managed portfolio, we will automatically create a sub-account dedicated to that portfolio under your existing Saxo account.

There is no minimum investment period and you can exit at any time for no additional cost. However, it’s important to remember that our managed portfolios are designed for long-term investing and we’d only recommend them if you intend to invest for several years.

Compared to traditional wealth managers we offer a compelling and cost effective way to have your money managed, with some of our portfolio less than half of the cost of an expensive wealth service.

The Costs explianed

Service Fee: This is the fee charged for Saxo to manage your money. It is an annual cost, deducted quarterly on a pro-rata basis. You can find more information on the service fee here

Conversion fee: Some portfolios invest into stocks or ETFs that are denominated in different currencies than the portfolio. For example the Morningstar portfolio range is Euro or USD denominated and purchase stocks from around the world. When buying or selling a GBP stock, for instance, a currency conversion cost is incurred. 

Our fees depend on the managed portfolio you choose to invest in.

As with all investing, there is a relationship between the amount of risk you take and the level of returns you could receive (both positively and negatively). The risk profiles of managed portfolios indicate the potential severity of a loss (of value) during a negative period. As a reference, investing into stocks is considered high risk and during a bad period the stock market could lose around 20%, based on historic events. 

High risk
During a bad period, this portfolio is expected to incur a similar  loss than stock markets. For reference, stocks markets could lose 20% or more in an extreme scenario.

Profile Questionnaire
To help us find the best portfolios for you, we ask that you complete your profile before investing. This is a required step in the investment process and only takes a few minutes.

Investment risk
Investing in financial products always involves risk. As a general rule, you should only invest in financial products if you understand the risks associated with them. Investing in a portfolio with currency that differs from the base currency of your account carries the risk of exposure to changes in the rate of exchange between them. See the full Managed Portfolio Disclaimer for more information.
