As we ramped up our portfolio consulting services a few years back, we noticed the opportunity advisors had if they were able to integrate individual securities into portfolios. Limited by SMA fees and trading costs, these were generally exceptions for larger prospects who wanted something beyond a simple ETF/Mutual Fund model.

Fast forward to today, and we have a team of CFAs managing an entire suite of managed equity sleeves. “Compounders” was the first, and we’ve added “Value” and “Growth” sleeves that can all work together to deliver a “Core” equity exposure.

While we think our team does great work applying our Yield + Growth framework to these baskets, what can be even more beneficial is the client experience. Clients wanting to really know what they own can get comfortable. Prospects with wirehouse portfolios can be more easily transitioned. And chances to generate tax alpha can be expanded.

We try communicating regularly on the quality tilt behind our approach, and the sleeve updates we make along the way. Here is a more detailed presentation on the work going on behind the scenes:

Don’t be shy about asking for more info, we’ve assisted on some great wins by helping advisors work individual securities into a set of high-net-worth model portfolios. Additionally, there are case studies behind every stock included in the portfolios. Enjoy!
