We will adjust the amount we invest in the core to reflect existing holdings or objectives, always staying within the parameters of the investment mandate agreed with your clients’.


The satellite component is the truly bespoke part of your clients’ portfolio and reflects their specific investment wishes, for example retirement saving or ethical investing. These are called strategies.

Our strategies

Life Stage investing

Clients who want their investments to achieve certain income requirements, such as saving for retirement, or income drawdown in retirement a Life Stage strategy may be appropriate. This strategy is designed to meet income or saving requirements, while accounting for estimated inflation over a rolling six-year period. The aim is to provide comfort that your clients’ income or saving requirements are invested ahead of their need. This reduces the risk of not meeting that objective without considerable capital erosion when markets are volatile.

Ethical investing

This strategy provides clients with a portfolio that is managed under the ethical considerations that matter to them. We combine negative and positive screening BS ESG ratings to give your clients peace of mind that their investments not only align with your client’s principals, but may also generate returns in line with your clients’ risk profiles.

Thematic investing

Certain investment themes, such as infrastructure and healthcare, offer the potential for steady long-term structural returns. This strategy offers diversification across global markets and themes by investing in sectors that can also perform well in an environment of rising inflation.

Charities and foundations

Trustees who look after investments for charities and foundations have a big responsibility. At Tatton, we offer a bespoke investment management strategy designed to generate the best possible investment return for charities and foundations with their chosen level of risk and fully aligned to their investment policy statement.
