Helping institutional investors select an Outsourced CIO.


Access sample questions to help you in building your own Request for Proposal (RFP)

An effective relationship with an Outsourced CIO (OCIO) provider is a partnership - the firm that you hire ultimately becomes an extension of your organization. Searching for the provider that will bring you the right combination of advice, investments and services and is staffed by people you like and trust, is a daunting task. Not all OCIO providers are created equally.
