Matchmakers – The value of a Centralised Investment Proposition
By Mark Bradley - July 15, 2020
As written in the Harvard Business review “we’re living in the matchmaker economy. It is a bigger and more pervasive part of our lives than many imagine.”
In the investment management arena, there has long been matchmaking for everyone’s mutual benefit. Matchmaking between advisers and clients, advisers and product providers, and investment managers and platforms.
Unfortunately, what isn’t always evident is when these matches have turned stale or run their course. It is important to pause every so often and re-evaluate who our chosen partners are and whether the investment proposition offered to clients as a result is optimal.
Leading advisers are always looking for ways to future-proof their businesses, improve their service offering and deliver the best proposition and experience they can. A centralised investment proposition (CIP) is one way to tick all of these boxes. A crucial aspect of a CIP is that it must be suitable for clients and not just the adviser firm.
By choosing the right match and implementing a top-class CIP advisers and clients stand to benefit from:
An investment process that is easy for the clients to understand
A more structured and better researched investment solution
The ability to manage wealth in line with the client’s risk profile
The ability to manage risk and return expectations more effectively
Better informed clients via rich reporting
