BEST JUNIOR ISA PROVIDER BMO

W

BMO paid its first dividend in 1829 and hasn’t missed a payment since. At 190 years, this is the longest-running dividend payout for any Canadian company and means that cash has been returned to shareholders through major crises including World War I, the Great Depression, World War II and the 2008 financial crisis.

ith over 900 hundred branches across Canada, we’re a household name there but are less well known to many of our UK customers. Having officially adopted the BMO name across many of our trusts and savings plans (previously F&C) in 2018 however, that’s changing. BMO officially started doing business in November 1817 and was Canada’s first bank - its pioneering status reflected in its official Canadian bank number, 001. In the subsequent 200+ years we have grown to service the needs of over 12 million customers worldwide.

A global business Today, BMO employs over 45,000 people and alongside personal banking activities offers a diversified range of financial services from investment and corporate banking through wealth and asset management. Alongside our operations in North America, we have a presence in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and South America.

BMO in numbers • 8th largest bank in North America by assets • CAD$774 billion in total assets • 12+ million customers globally • 8+ million personal and commercial customers in Canada

BEST MULTI-MANAGER FUND PROVIDER ARCHITAS

A

rchitas is a multi-manager investment firm that aims to help individuals, financial advisers and institutions meet their investment goals. Our focus is on keeping things simple, aiming to make the process of choosing an investment as straightforward as possible. We do this through our multi-manager funds, which invest in a selection of leading fund managers, who specialise in different asset classes and countries. Diversifying in this way means investors could potentially benefit from the experience of some of the best fund managers in one investment solution.

Your approach When it comes to risk, we understand everyone is different; that is why we offer funds with a range of risk levels. Whether you are more conservative, or able to accept more risk, we may have an investment to suit you. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of an investment, and any income, can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed. Our investments are managed with a long-term view of five years or more and may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money before then.

Why Architas? We believe extensive in-house research is key to helping us pick the best managers around and have established one of the largest UK multi-manager focused investment teams in the industry. Our investment team carries out expert research with the aim of finding the best, most consistent specialist managers and to uncover potentially unique investment opportunities.

Architas operates three legal entities in the UK; Architas Multi-Manager Limited (AMML), Architas Advisory Services Limited (AASL) and Architas Limited. Both AMML and AASL are owned by Architas Limited, which is 100% owned by AXA SA (a company registered in France).
