SaxoSelect is a fully digital and automated investment service that enables clients to invest in a wide variety of investment and trading strategies directly from their trading platform.
When you open a SaxoSelect investment, it is automatically established in a new account in the currency of the portfolio and the investment amount is transferred from your default account. SaxoSelect follows an account managed by an expert trader or fund manager and automatically copies trades on the managed account to your SaxoSelect account with minimum latency.
SaxoSelect offers three types of strategies:
Trading StrategiesTrading Strategies follow the accounts of accomplished traders with a proven trading records and offer high risk/rewards on aggressive trading strategies. The strategies typically follow a theme such as Commodity Focus and Charts & Patterns - following technical trade signals, but are also discretionary following the instincts of the expert trader.
Equity PortfoliosEquity Portfolios contain stocks and are managed by portfolio managers. The Saxo Morningstar MOAT® portfolio is built on Morningstar MOAT® methodology and is managed and implemented by Saxo Bank.
Balanced PortfoliosBalanced Portfoliosfor the long term investors containing portfolio of Stock and Bond ETFs built on BlackRock research. These portfolios offer attractive investment opportunities and are also ideal as repositories of funds used for margin trading, where a percentage of the value of the portfolio’s investments can be used as collateral for trading margin products such as FX, CFDs and futures.
Morningstar Equity Research analysts provide a model portfolio of 30 global stocks which Saxo Bank implements in the Saxo Morningstar MOAT® Portfolio with equal weighting.
The stocks in the portfolio are rigorously vetted from 33 exchanges and rated using the Morningstar Economic Moat® methodology. To qualify, stocks must demonstrate a sustainable competitive advantage and be expected to fend off competitors and earn high returns for at least 20 years (Wide Moat) or 10 years (Narrow Moat). Stocks are then evaluated using fundamental analysis to arrive at a fair value estimate and must be trading at a considerable discount to this estimate. Stocks are also screened to ensure minimum market liquidity.
At the end of each quarter, the portfolio will be reviewed by Morningstar Investment Mangement Europe and rebalanced by Saxo Bank if necessary. To reduce the number of stocks replaced and the associated trading costs, the portfolio only replaces stocks if an alternative can be found which offers a 25% improvement in its price to fair-value. The rebalancing to target weights is also subject to a buffer to minimize transaction costs.
All rebalancing will automatically be reflected in your portfolio.
Economic moats represent sustainable competitive advantages that allow companies to protect their value and lead to excess returns over a long-term investing horizon.
Eligible stocks for the portfolio are further rated using Morningstar Economic Moat® methodology to qualify their competitive advantage based on 5 principles:
Stocks included in the Saxo Morningstar MOAT® Portfolio must have a ‘Wide’ or ‘Narrow’ Moat, demonstrating a sustainable competitive advantage being expected to fend off competitors and earn high returns on capital for at least 20 years (Wide Moat) or 10 years (Narrow Moat).
