To truly understand the difference between investment propositions, you need to look at the bigger picture. Our investment reviews look at the people, processes and philosophy behind an investment solution to give you everything you need to know. 

Use them to illuminate your own propositions with credible opinion from a trusted brand. Or to help find the right investments for your clients.

Rigorous methodology

  • We review propositions annually via an in-depth asset manager interview that covers their philosophy, people and processes
  • Information is complemented with a review of the asset manager’s research capability, the resources they have at their disposal and how they manage risk
  • Quantitative and qualitative performance data is updated every six months
  • We align the metrics in our reviews to the research available in Defaqto Engage, to give advisers complete consistency.

Suitable and compliant

  • As our reviews go beyond the information available in fact sheets and Key Investor Information Documents (KIIDs), they’re a great way to engage with advisers…
  • …and to communicate the value of a proposition to customers at the point of recommendation. All our reviews are available in Defaqto Engage, our financial planning software 
  • In fact, 87% of advisers find our ESG Reviews useful, and 89% our Fund Reviews*.

Independent, unbiased and comprehensive reviews of funds, MPS portfolios, investment trusts and ESG

Up to date

We carry out reviews of propositions every year and update qualitative and quantitative performance data every six months.


Our reviews use a mix of quantitative and qualitative data to deliver a well-rounded and detailed report. They also include our Risk, Diamond and Star Ratings where applicable.


They can be used on their own, or alongside other documents to communicate the value of a proposition.
