Outsourced Chief Investment Officer Services

If your RIA is seeking additional expertise and leverage, Wealthspire Advisors’ Outsourced CIO solution was designed to provide key deliverables that free up advisors to spend more time with clients while keeping your firm connected to the ultimate investment process they employ.

Designed for Independent Advisors

As an independent advisor ourselves, we understand your clients and the important interplay between financial planning and investments. RIAs serve a sophisticated array of clients in an environment that is constantly evolving in complexity, risk, and the speed and agility required to respond to markets.

Rather than a subscription service that is one-size-fits-all, we build a customized relationship with firms to create deliverables they need most, freeing up their time to engage with clients on the more personal side of investing.

Why Choose Outsourced Investing?

investment processes that take

practice management.

key areas such as manager
selection, due diligence, and
deliverable preparation, advisors
