How can OCIO help you?
How can a holistic and tailored approach get you closer to achieving your investment goals?
If your board meets quarterly, you may have as little as 16 hours per YEAR to collectively make investment decisions. Best-in-class providers 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 organization is unique—with their own goals, circumstances, values and beliefs. That’s why leading providers should have the flexibility and tools to precisely align to these needs—improving the likelihood of achieving your goals, without compromising your values or beliefs.
Global providers can help reduce your overall costs, using their scale to negotiate more competitive rates with sub-managers and pooling your assets with other organizations. The leading OCIO providers can further optimize 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. Outsourcing CIO will add additional depth to your team, providing the support you need within a level of discretion that suits you.
Markets change daily. That’s why annual or quarterly investment meetings can be seen as inadequate in today’s fast-paced environment. Global providers operate around the clock, dynamically monitoring and managing investments day and night.
Improved access to best opportunities
An outsourced investment provider can help you cost effectively access the specialist investment expertise you need. The very best providers will go well beyond in-house strategies, extensively researching and rating thousands of investment managers and opportunities to find those ideally suited to your portfolio.
