Investment Consulting - Managing your investment manager

Greater Transparency

The wave of reforms aimed at making the investment industry fairer and more transparent delivers fresh opportunities and brings new challenges for both investors and investment managers. In an increasingly competitive global marketplace, investment managers are faced with a battle to maintain fee structures and market share. The choice of investments and investment styles are also being adjusted in a bid to preserve assets under management. 

Investors need to shape and govern the relationship with their investment manager to obtain the best possible value and service.  

Knowing what you require and making sure it is delivered

For investors, selecting the right manager is challenging. Once appointed, managing that relationship can be time consuming and will raise further questions - am I paying too much? Am I being exposed to the level of risk I originally intended? Are the managers doing what they said they would? Are the investments performing?

Our team pulls together our extensive knowledge on strategies, performance and costs being experienced by other investors across the industry to assist the degree of effectiveness and efficiency of your chosen portfolio. Here are some of the services we provide to both private and corporate investors:

Setting your investment objectives

  • Designing or reviewing investment strategy and mandates to ensure alignment to your risk/return and/or other objectives
  • Determining an asset allocation consistent with your objectives and risk tolerance
  • Creation of suitable benchmarks that properly reflect your investment objectives

Selecting the right investment manager(s)

  • Optimise portfolio success by identifying the most applicable investment manager(s) to your objectives and assisting in the management of the relationship(s)
  • Participate in fee negotiations with third party investment managers to ensure you obtain the best value-for-money price

Monitoring investment managers’ performance

  • Strengthen risk management practices through regular independent reviews of each manager’s adherence to mandated portfolio risk
