The TB Opie Street Funds have been launched first and foremost for the benefit of our existing clients, and specifically, those within our Fund Portfolio Service.
The Funds are invested in a number of different asset classes including fixed interest (gilts and bonds), equities (shares) and alternatives (including infrastructure and real estate). Exposure to these asset classes is achieved via investment in collective investments (including other funds and investment trusts).
Given the highly diversified nature of the Funds, they are designed to provide a ‘one-stop’ investment solution for clients. This is particularly relevant for smaller portfolios, where achieving sufficient diversification has become increasingly challenging and consequently more costly for clients.
The Funds are differentiated by risk profile, with the Growth Fund suitable for our ‘Medium-High Risk’ clients, whilst the Balanced Fund and Income Funds are suitable for our ‘Medium Risk’ clients (as defined by Barratt & Cooke’s risk policy). This differentiation is achieved via the asset allocation of the Funds, with implications on expected volatility.
The Funds are also differentiated by objective, with the Growth Fund suitable for clients for whom seeking long-term capital growth is their primary motivation, and the Balanced Fund suitable for clients for whom an attractive level of income is an important consideration, alongside seeking long-term capital growth. The Income Fund is suitable for those for whom income is their primary motivation.
The Funds are available for investment in clients’ own names, joint names, ISAs, JISAs, SIPPs and also on behalf of Trusts, Charities and other entities.

The KIIDs and Prospectus provide full details on the risks associated with the Funds.
Quarterly factsheets for the three Funds are published in January, April, July and October.
Quarterly factsheets for both Funds will be made available from October, ensuring that investors are kept abreast of developments within the Funds.
