The Investment Committee

The Investment committee blends fund managers specialising in running multi-manager portfolios with experienced financial advisers representing investor interests.  The committee will review the management of the Sentinel funds on a quarterly basis and are able to switch the management of the individual funds if required.

The advantage of the Sentinel range is that should the management underperform the committee can change the management without investors having to sell their investments and reinvest with a new manager.  In addition, the funds have been set up to offer significant cost savings.
