MitonOptimal CI can help you decide which type of service meets those needs and expectations you may have through offering the following services.  All investment decisions are made by the MitonOptimal CI Investment Management Committee (“IMC”), which is made up of professional investment people from a range of disciplines.  The IMC ensures that all decisions are well thought out and appropriate.

  • The IMC meets on a monthly basis and review all aspects of the market and our investment models and strategies

MitonOptimal CI offer the following Service Promise to all of its clients:

Service Promise

The three main tenets of our service promise to our clients are:

  1. communication
  2. continuity
  3. flexibility

MitonOptimal CI is able to deliver exceptional personal service based on these three tenets, which form a cornerstone of our business strategy and also reflect the character and philosophy of our company and its approach to offering professional investment services.

1. Communication

MitonOptimal CI has regular meetings with all clients’, private or institutional, throughout the year, aiming to suit the preferences of each individual client where possible.  This ensures that our clients are always fully aware of the status of their managed portfolio and are also able to speak directly to investment decision makers within MitonOptimal CI.

2. Continuity

MitonOptimal CI’s philosophy towards client relationships has, to a large extent, been shaped by its Principals’ experience of our industry’s shortcomings. Foremost amongst our clients’ needs is continuity of contact with someone whom they know and who is familiar with their affairs. Yet this most basic of requirements – a familiar voice on the end of the ‘phone or a friendly face in a meeting – is something that is so often missing with many investment organisations. As owners of the business, our principals are committed to MitonOptimal for the long term and recognize that this continuity will be key to maintaining lasting relationships with our clients.

3. Flexibility

MitonOptimal CI has the flexibility to deliver to our clients wealth management solutions and standards of service that go beyond industry norms. Key to this is our independence and our policy of out-sourcing day-to-day strategy execution and stock selection decisions to proven specialists through the use of collective vehicles such as offshore funds and unit trusts. Free from the constraints that are inherent in larger organisations, our “magpie approach” means that we are able to draw upon a pool of investment talent that is broader, yet at the same time more focused, than any single investment provider can offer. Furthermore, our size means that we can respond to change quickly and implement ideas effectively: not for us the endless machinations of the typical investment committee. These factors, combined with research and data sources, manager selection criteria and due diligence processes that are at least the equal of our peers, mean that MitonOptimal CI holds its own in terms of investment expertise.


MitonOptimal’s fee structure is designed to offer clients a fair and equitable range of costs that are charged quarterly in arrears.   MitonOptimal CI offers a competitive fee schedule for their services.  We also maintain a fair system that includes rebating introductory commissions where possible for our Discretionary and Advisory Management Services.  Contact us for a no obligation portfolio management proposal tailored to your specific requirements.
