Who we help

Read about our approach with registered investment advisors (“RIAs”), accounting firms, banks and more. 

Registered investment advisors (“RIAs”)

The growth in RIAs over the last decade has been substantial and will certainly continue. Along with that growth, competition for your client relationships has never been more fierce, as other RIAs, private banks and multi-family offices have all added resources, enhanced their client offerings and moved aggressively to differentiate their practices. To remain competitive, RIAs are faced with the task of adding specialized staff or exploring other options to broaden and deepen their service offerings.

Our dedicated Advisor Solutions professionals have decades of experience working both with and for RIAs, so they understand the unique demands required for firms to succeed in this rapidly changing marketplace. We provide a broad array of services that will support and expand an RIA’s capabilities, including guidance on portfolio construction and asset allocation, investment manager due diligence, intellectual capital/client-ready collaterals, practice management insights and support for retaining and winning new business. Our research and consulting teams understand the unique operating rhythm of RIAs and we structure our teams to ensure we are always available to meet your needs. Both our research and consulting teams function as an extension of your staff as we provide customized services and solutions specific to your requirements. Our institutional approach to investment solutions and client service provides the rigor, transparency and responsiveness needed by RIAs to elevate their practices and differentiate the services provided in this competitive environment.

Accounting firms

As a trusted advisor that provides essential guidance to their clients across tax and investment planning, accounting firms have to navigate the complexity of today’s investment landscape to provide compelling and fully vetted solutions to their clients, which can be a significant task.

The services provided by our Advisor Solutions Group allows accounting firms to more seamlessly provide institutional-quality investment solutions to their clients, which are demanding more sophisticated investment guidance today than ever before.  Our team can provide your staff with an array of carefully selected investment options across all asset classes, including alternatives, such as private equity, real estate and infrastructure at attractively negotiated minimums. We serve as a point of leverage for your firm that provides your clients with the solutions they need and your staff with the access they require to our research expertise, insights and content to grow your investment practice.

Banks

Providing comprehensive investment guidance and solutions can be a challenge for any bank, as your non-investment business requires substantial resources and oversight in their own right. However, as the central piece in the financial lives of your customers, banks are uniquely positioned to provide trusted investment services to a wide variety of investors, which can present many obstacles.

Our Advisor Solutions team has worked with banks since 2003 and our experience partnering with banks can further refine your investment practice and provide the rigor and transparency required in a highly regulated environment. Our institutional approach to investment due diligence and asset allocation provides the documentation and process welcomed by our bank clients as our team serves as an extension of your staff. Our flexible approach allows you to select which services we provide, serving either as a complement to your existing investment practice or as a fully outsourced research provider. We provide customized services to each client based on your needs and share our insights for how your practice compares to peers. Creating ongoing content for your clients can be time-consuming, which is why we provide client-ready communications and the ability for you to co-brand or private label these documents as needed.

Our flexible approach, rigorous institutional processes and experience team can help differentiate your investment practice.

Broker dealers

Broker Dealers are faced with managing significant complexity, from integrating new advisors, retaining outstanding advisors and managing the myriad of investment choices on their investment platforms. The regulatory and compliance requirements of broker dealers provides additional challenges that need be managed as each firm strives to run a profitable business.

Our Advisor Solutions practice is experienced working with broker dealers and have helped build and evaluate model portfolios, perform due diligence on investment platforms and provide recommendations for platform structure and strategy rationalization. As your research partner, our team provides the full breadth of our investment capabilities and experience to identify the most appropriate solutions for your advisors and clients. Leverage all of our communications, including white papers, market reviews and blogs to better inform your advisors and increase the content you can share with clients.
Our decades of experience, flexible approach and rigorous process can provide you with solutions to help your existing advisors and ease the integration of new advisors into your practice.

Multi-family offices

Our Advisor Solution Group is experienced serving the varied, demanding and evolving needs of the highly competitive Multi-Family Office (MFO) industry segment. The holistic approach employed by MFOs to oversee all aspects of a client’s financial affairs can benefit from our perspective on both the global markets and investment opportunity set.

Our services are tailored specifically to both supplement and complement the existing capabilities of the MFO investment office and support the seasoned investment professionals and client portfolio managers that staff it. We act as an extension of investment staff and a multiplier of investment office capacity. Our Advisor Solution Group extends substantial internal resources and leverages our experience working with institutions, taxable investors, and multi-generational family offices in active collaboration with investment staff. Ultimately, we seek to support the ongoing development and maintenance of tools, standards and practices necessary for effective top-down and bottom-up portfolio implementation decision-making. Our approach places a strong emphasis on practical, readily implementable and scalable investment solutions and our investment recommendations are highly customized to reflect each organization’s unique mix of clients. Due to our experience of working with Family Offices, clients can elect to have our team take on additional responsibilities and functions to allow the MFO staff to focus on areas where they possess a competitive advantage.

Insurance companies

The varied challenges faced by insurance companies can be significant, ranging from due diligence needs on hundreds of strategies to helping staff identify appropriate managers and investment structure for the general account.

Our Advisor Solutions team has worked directly and extensively with the product management and investment staff responsible for general account portfolio implementation, fixed and variable annuity program construction and wealth management platform maintenance. We are experienced and well versed in satisfying the unique needs and requirements in such areas as customized manager/sub-advisor search, manager operational due diligence, investment structure portfolio design and manager/sub-advisor monitoring programs. Serving as an extension of staff, our team brings an experienced approach, due diligence rigor and flexibility to assist staff in sourcing creative solutions to complex issues.
