A client’s financial + psychological position typically points to an optimal risk / reward exposure. Models represent that exposure through a diversified approach to the best strategies and managers in our view. It allows us to allocate efficiently and focus much of our time on reviewing and enhancing our model holdings and providing you with a solid understanding of how your client is invested.
Satellite investments provide the opportunity to further diversify and fine tune a client’s risk / reward objectives. Typically, there is some feature of a satellite investment that makes it not appropriate for a model. For example, they may have a lack of liquidity or a high minimum investment level. At the same time, it provides that opportunity for a client touch with a unique offering that is generally not accessible directly for the client.
Holistic Investment Alignment
Clients are almost never a blank slate. They have insurance products, existing investments, distinct goals – some unique story. Simply sticking them in a model may exacerbate a concentrated position as an example. The more information we have in regards to the client, the better we can tailor to their true needs using both the tools mentioned above as well as other approaches and strategies as necessary.
All necessary client information at your fingertips. Cash positions, systematics, models, account setup, and other relevant details are updated and provided continuously on your client dashboard.
