An Outsourced Chief Investment Officer (OCIO) model enables an organization to delegate responsibility for the day-to-day management of its investment program. Speciﬁcally, it involves shifting discretionary investment responsibility for some or all investment functions from the asset owner to an investment advisor.
Markets can be inefficient, and investment opportunities are ever changing. A thorough understanding of the past, combined with rigorous analysis of the present offers insight into the most probable path forward.
The first step is understanding each client’s specific needs and objectives.
Each portfolio is custom built and tailored to each client’s unique investment needs, restrictions, and values.
The right combination of robust, quantitative analyses and deep, qualitative research enables the creation of the optimal solution for each client.
Client portfolios adjust as markets evolve to generate superior, risk-adjusted returns.
Being a patient investor lends to capitalizing on long-term trends even as markets evolve.
Helping clients receive the best value means identifying undervalued or mispriced investment options.
Validating that clients receive our best thinking through every investment decision, the strategy, manager research and portfolio management teams work closely together.
Clients can benefit from both active and passive managers, we believe that skilled active managers exist and that in certain times and sectors passive managers are optimal.
Clients need to invest with knowledge of what and why they own to have a greater conviction in their portfolio. A stronger conviction typically means staying the course when markets are stressed, which leads to better results. So that you have confidence in what you own, we strive to be clear and set expectations upfront.
