VanEck has partnered with Lonsec Investment Solutions to launch a range of exchange-traded fund (ETF) model portfolios to assist in the construction of cost-effective diversified portfolios for adviser clients.

The model portfolios would use Lonsec research to provide recommended strategic asset allocations tailored to three risk-return profiles – balanced, growth and high growth.

The research company would provide ongoing independent oversight and quarterly reporting around the portfolios, each of which had a minimum recommended rating from Lonsec.

Asset classes covered in the portfolios include Australian and global equities, property, and Australian and international fixed income.

VanEck Australia managing director Arian Neiron said the group was delighted to partner with such an experienced name in investment research and asset allocation.

“We believe the new VanEck ETF Model Portfolios will provide financial advisers with a set of tools to build cost-effective and diversified investment portfolios to help meet the needs of their clients across a range of risk profiles,” Neiron said.

“Over the past decade, the investment industry has experienced a rapidly changing environment, with turbulent markets, changes in regulation and evolving technology.

“As a result, clients are scrutinising their investments more closely in search of performance, value and transparency in an increasingly cost-conscious world.

“Our ETF model portfolios are designed to address these factors and provide a reliable, low-cost investment framework for investors.”

Lonsec chief investment officer Lukasz de Pourbaix added the company was pleased to be able to provide the new range of diversified portfolios.

“The model portfolios leverage Lonsec’s strategic asset allocation and research expertise, providing advisers with a range of relatively low-cost portfolio solutions across various risk profiles,” de Pourbaix said.
