Outsourced Chief Investment Officer Services

Our OCIO Services

If you are seeking additional expertise and leverage, our 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.

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.

What is an OCIO?

An Outsourced Chief Investment Officer (OCIO) acts as a full-service third-party provider to wealth management, investment management, or consulting firms and takes on the investment related responsibilities of those organizations. That typically includes setting the strategic asset allocation, selecting managers to oversee day-to-day portfolio management, and providing guidance on the overall direction of clients’ investment portfolios.

What are the benefits of an OCIO?

For many firms, partnering with an OCIO provides additional expertise, leverage, and allows advisors time to focus on other elements of their business. There are other benefits to this relationship as well, like more efficient time management, reduction of costs, customized financial solutions, streamlined decision-making, and working with a network of trusted professionals.

What does an OCIO provide?

There’s a reason why investment outsourcing is on the rise, and one of the best things about using an OCIO is that the relationship is customized to exactly what you want and need. Wealthspire provides many routine, quarterly, and annual services.
