Our Services & Solutions
Your relationship with Harbour can be structured in a variety of ways, depending on your desired level of involvement and strategy for your investment portfolio.
HWM provides you with access to over 100 global exchanges through a single universal account in a low-tax offshore jurisdiction. The Dubai International Financial Centre offers a unique common law offshore booking centre. With our global reach, account consolidation, and a tax-efficient regime, you will be able to achieve true global portfolio diversification at a reasonable cost.
We provide advisory services on products and portfolios to assist you in making informed investment decisions. We also advise on credit with other counterparties. We can provide guidance into your portfolio’s risk exposure and assess its component allocations. We can research a product of your choice and provide you with an independent and informed price and risk assessment.
As a courtesy service to our clients, we stand ready to provide a detailed assessment of your current portfolio. The first step allows you to understand the level of risk you are currently taking in your portfolio. The second step is to answer a 10-minute questionnaire that covers topics such as portfolio size, top financial goals, and what you are willing to risk for potential gains. This helps us pinpoint your exact level of risk tolerance and return expectations, which will subsequently allow us to assess the gaps in your current portfolio.
We build a risk profile of each client by utilizing a state-of-the-art quantitative psychometric analysis based on Prospect Theory. The application is based on decades of academic research, and it quantifies the semantics of subjective terms like “moderately conservative” and “moderately aggressive” with a Risk Budget. This risk profiling models an investor’s utility curve for each additional unit of wealth against the tolerance for additional risk.
We can assist you in building a suitable portfolio aligned with your risk tolerance. This service is offered to our Advisory and Discretionary Portfolio clients. Using cutting-edge risk technology, we ensure that the portfolio is aligned with your investment goals and expectations. To do this, we must start the process by estimating your risk tolerance by conducting a Risk Assessment.
Discretionary Portfolio Management
With a Discretionary Mandate, you will benefit from Harbour’s day-to-day access to the risk systems used to monitor and control clients’ risk level exposures. Value at Risk (VaR) and stress testing models will be made available and can be shared with the clients. A portfolio’s target allocation must be in line with the targeted Risk Budget calculated earlier during the questionnaire process. In this way, we can ensure that investors do not make an emotional decision to liquidate, and allow them to let the markets do their job of taking the portfolios where they are expected to be.
Arranging & Advising on Credit
There are many cases in which it is more economical to arrange a Lombard loan to access liquidity than it is to liquidate a portion of the portfolio: tax efficiency, transaction costs, and opportunity costs. Harbour is licensed to advise you on credit transactions and arrange the borrowing with 3rd parties by pledging the financial assets held in custody with Harbour as collateral for the benefit of the 3rd party creditors.
If you are more inclined to trade global markets using Harbour’s platform, we can set up an execution-only account with access to the same global network of brokers with whom Harbour acts as Introducing Broker.
