Model Construction

A Customized Portfolio Construction Program for Advisors

As the financial services industry and your practice evolve, you need asset allocation strategies that are designed to keep up with the changing landscape. A targeted suite of model portfolios could provide a scalable means to grow your practice and maximize investment outcomes for your clients.

The Model Construction program from T. Rowe Price combines the strategic design principles of our world-class Multi-Asset Division with our specialized portfolio construction expertise and your personal preferences to build a proprietary suite of customized model portfolios.

Nearly 50 cents of every dollar

managed by financial advisors resides in a model portfolio.*

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 advisors look beyond their home office for portfolio construction support.
