Why an OCIO?

In a traditional investment model that does not utilize an OCIO, organizations are responsible for all investment management-related functions, often performing them “in-house.” By contrast, in an OCIO model, a third-party provider takes on many of the routine investment decision-making responsibilities typically handled by their investment committees.

Organizations often choose the OCIO model to help cut costs, improve their investment program’s oversight and governance, benefit from their provider’s scale, and free up capacity to be redeployed in other areas of their business.

More investment committees have come to understand that having an investment partner can increase the effectiveness of their investment programs.
