The Self Select option allows you to choose whichever managers you like in order to build a tailor-made investment portfolio. You can switch managers and funds anytime you wish. Their Skandia Investment Management option involves their sister company Skandia Investment Management Limited choosing the funds for you, monitoring and replacing them when necessary.
