What is OCIO?

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.

How We Invest

Focused on Goals
Our process begins by understanding each client’s unique needs and objectives.

We seek to build portfolios tailored to each client’s particular investment needs, restrictions, and values.

Deep Analysis
Robust quantitative analyses combined with strong qualitative research can generate meaningful insight not attainable by either method on its own, so we employ both to help derive the preferred portfolio solutions for our clients.

Our Approach to Markets

Markets evolve and portfolios need to adjust accordingly to generate competitive returns.

Long-Term View
While markets are ever-changing, we believe patient investors can capitalize on proven long-term trends.

We seek to identify investment opportunities that are undervalued and/or mispriced by the market.

How We Construct Portfolios

Our strategy, manager research, and portfolio management teams work closely together to incorporate our best thinking in investment decisions.

Open Architecture
Our skilled due diligence team seeks opportunities in active and passive vehicles wherever they may be found – including investment offered by highly rated third parties, as well as targeted/customized in-house solutions where applicable.


Investors who know what they own and why they own it have greater conviction in their portfolios and tend to stay the course when markets are stressed.

We strive to be clear and set expectations up front so that investors have confidence in what they own.

Always with an Eye on Risk
There are many risks to worry about when investing: shortfall, volatility, unintended exposure, liquidity, and operational risks.

We employ a rigorous risk management framework monitoring all of these risks to enhance the probability of reaching your goals.

Enterprise Financial Modeling

Enterprise financial modeling integrates financial decisions with investment decisions in a holistic way that leads to improved outcomes for institutions.
