How can Investment outsourcing help you?

What are the ways outsourced investment management helps get you closer to achieving your goals?

Enhanced governance

If your board meets quarterly, you may have as little as 16 hours per YEAR to collectively make investment decisions. Best-in-class implemented consulting will help you delegate effectively, ensuring your governance structure is robust and aligned to your needs. You can focus on the decisions that matter and maintain oversight across your entire investment program.

Tailoring the solution to your needs

Every organisation is unique - with their own goals, circumstances, values and beliefs. That’s why leading implemented consultants must have the flexibility and tools to precisely align to these needs - improving the likelihood of achieving your goals, without compromising your values or beliefs.

Lower costs

Global investment managers can help reduce your overall costs, using their scale to negotiate more competitive rates with sub-managers and pooling your assets with other organisations. Outsourced investment management can further optimise your portfolio to your fee budget - drawing on active, factor-based and passive strategies for a holistic solution.

Reduced strain on your resources

Keeping pace with continually evolving markets, regulatory obligations, multiple providers and endless administrative tasks can place a significant strain on you and your team. The right partner adds additional depth to your team, providing the support you need within a level of discretion that suits you.
