Hands-on guidance Focused on your goals

Our process begins the moment you engage us. Right from the start, we focus on learning everything we can about you and your organization. Our approach is high-touch and responsive because that's the only way to provide you with customized solutions. And because we're backed by the vast resources of UBS, we offer you a viewpoint grounded in a global perspective.

Investment planning

Before you can determine how to pursue your goals, you need to understand where you are today. We can:

  • Assess your current situation and make appropriate  recommendations for the future
  • Evaluate your risk and reward profile to come up with a plan that meets your investment objectives
  • Assist in creating an Investment Policy Statement (IPS) that we can regularly review and amend to reflect any changes in your outlook  or circumstances

Asset allocation

Your organization has a unique set of values and goals, and your asset allocation should reflect that. We can:

  • Compare expected risk, return and correlation across traditional asset classes by using parameters identified in your Investment Policy Statement (IPS)
  • Assist in developing a strategy we can adjust over time to manage your risk exposure
  • Structure your portfolio to reflect the philosophy of your organization
  • Analyze alternative strategies using portfolio optimization models, economic forecasts and proprietary capital markets assumptions developed by UBS
  • Recommend strategic rebalancing of your portfolio to maintain the appropriate risk/return profile

Manager and strategy alignment

Making sure your managers and investment strategies are aligned is important to your plan's success. We can:

  • Identify and recommend appropriate investment vehicles, both active and passive, that match your organization's philosophy
  • Analyze current manager performance to determine if adjustments are needed
  • Screen and identify prospective managers who better reflect your organization's investment philosophy, risk management and style adherence
  • Monitor managers for adherence with qualitative and quantitative criteria

Ongoing advisory services

Institutional consulting requires depth and insight. Once we've established a relationship with you, we're there for the long term. We will:

  • Review your portfolio performance to determine if strategy changes are needed
  • Discuss portfolio adjustments based on objective analysis of strategies and types of investments
  • Share information on global and domestic economic outlooks, as well as capital market trends
  • Educate your fiduciaries on current market trends to help them make more informed decisions
