Program Features

  • Simple process: A three-step process includes an initial evaluation of your needs and preferences, a draft portfolio design for consideration, and a finalized suite of custom models.
  • Flexible design: Start building from your own model portfolios or home office models, or use strategic allocation models based on the insights of our world-class Multi-Asset Division.
  • Key documentation: Record your model construction process—design and manager preferences, decisions, and outcomes—in a convenient journal format.
  • Ongoing support: Refresh your custom suite of models with regular in-depth reviews to help ensure they remain appropriately aligned to the needs of your business.

Many financial professionals look beyond their home office for portfolio construction support.
