Finding Value


Weary of managing multiple service providers, an endowment began its search for a full-service, outsourced chief investment officer (OCIO).


By choosing Abbot Downing, our clients can access a complete, turn-key service: an outsourced chief investment officer (OCIO), strategic and tactical asset allocation, active fund manager search and selection, custody statements, online reporting, grant administration, institutional performance reporting, a team to help with day-to-day work, and banking services that coordinate with endowment management.


The endowment realizes even more savings through Abbot Downing's ability to aggregate managers across all our clients. The exact amount depends on the manager, but our relationships with outside managers let's us offer clients significant discounts on the fees they might otherwise pay.
