CleverMPS Features

The building blocks of our service

Created to help deliver the very best experience and outcomes for investors, our quantitative fund selection and monitoring system has been powering investment portfolios for more than a decade. Known as the CleverEngine, the system is continually reviewed and refined by a uniquely qualified team of financial professionals, datascientists, and software developers.

Each month, the CleverEngine analyses each of the 4,000+ UK domiciled investment funds using powerful algorithms and hundreds of thousands of data points to measure each against a range of carefully selected criteria, then
score and rank them accordingly. This process is robust, academic, and evidence based.

Scoring and ranking funds

Fund scores calculated with systematically selected criteria

Fund scores are calculated monthly using criteria like R-squared, Alpha, or average 1, 3, or 5-year performance, that’s weighted in order of their influence on performance in each sector.

These scores are used to rank funds and identify top performers (as well as those no longer scoring so well). The CleverMPS portfolio managers at Marlborough use this information to help determine the most suitable funds for inclusion in the portfolios.

Multi-award winning DFM

Introducing Marlborough, the multi-award winning discretionary fund manager

Marlborough is the FCA authorised and regulated DFM for the CleverMPS (ref: 115231). A multi-award-winning investment specialist, they manage circa £5billion for 200,000+ private, corporate, and institutional clients.

As CleverMPS portfolio managers, they oversee the day-to-day operations of the portfolios – reviewing the output of the CleverEngine, actioning trades, and working with Dynamic Planner on strategic asset allocation and risk-target-management.

Dynamic Planner risk target management asset allocation

Dynamic Planner is a multi-award-winning risk profiling and asset allocation service – the most widely used in the UK.
Each of our models were built to align with the corresponding Dynamic Planner risk profile.

To ensure that fund switches and market conditions won’t alter the overall risk ratings of our models, asset allocation data is submitted to Dynamic Planner for review quarterly. Any adjustments to the models are actioned accordingly by the CleverMPS portfolio managers.

Ongoing volatility analysis

Market shift detection

The Market Shift Detection System (MSDS) works alongside the CleverEngine to identify periods of heightened market volatility.

When a shift in market behaviour is detected, the MSDS indicates that a change in strategy may be appropriate – from ‘high-return’ to ‘low-risk’ in turbulent market conditions, or back to a ‘high-return’ strategy in periods of growth.

Award winning independent research house

ESG ratings from MSCI

For our Sustainable models, we combine the same data-led investment process with stringent exclusion criteria based on MSCI’s ESG fund ratings.

A leader in the field, they use relevant data from over 10,500 companies and 760,000+ equity and fixed income securities to create ESG scores and metrics for approximately 56,000 multi-asset class mutual funds and ETFs globally.

These ESG ratings provide fund-level transparency and allow measurement of ESG characteristics for a total portfolio, as well as screening individual funds based on set ESG exposure categories.
