SOLUTIONS AND SERVICES
Maximise the performance of assets in transition by reducing unnecessary cost and risk.
Organisations invest tremendous effort 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.
Our comprehensive transition management strategy and dedicated resources have the expertise to help you:
- Minimise unnecessary costs
- Mitigate unrewarded risk
- Reduce administrative workload
- Eliminate performance holidays and maintain accountability
Our suite of transition management services
We have the experience and the expertise to help clients manage their risks and maintain the value of investments through periods of portfolio restructuring. With a dedicated portfolio manager, you get accountability and daily interaction as well as robust reporting including customised daily transition updates, post-transition reporting, transaction reporting and attribution coupled with all necessary regulatory and board reporting.
As an interim portfolio manager, we can assume responsibility for the portfolio’s exposure and performance upon manager termination. Trading strategies and risk management techniques exercised throughout the assignment can significantly reduce the toll the transition might have on portfolio value. Just as importantly, we assume the workload from the asset owner, preventing vital resources in the organisation from becoming overly burdened by non-core administrative tasks. As a result, the asset owner often receives active management with reduced risk without paying the active management fees.
