How we’re helping clients achieve operational efficiencies
Seeking cost efficiencies
A global client wanted clarity around the investment strategy of its largest defined benefit (DB) plans and to investigate potential cost efficiencies around its commonly used investment managers within these plans.
We worked with the in-house investment team to identify the most common asset classes and built a global equity asset pool, hosted on an external platform, drawing on our extensive research to give all plans access to a high quality, diversified global equity fund that leveraged the scale of its total assets. The client’s new efficient framework allows them to focus more on their long-term strategies.
