Transition management

Maximise the performance of assets in transition by reducing unnecessary cost and risk.

The challenge

Organisations invest tremendous efforts in setting asset allocation policy, designing asset class structure, and researching and selecting investment managers. However, even the most innovative investment ideas can fail to meet expectations if they are implemented poorly.

A well-planned transition strategy and the right resources can help you to:

  • Minimise unnecessary costs
  • Mitigate unrewarded risk
  • Reduce administrative workload
  • Eliminate performance holidays and maintain accountability
