What We Offer

Outsourced CIO (Discretionary Management)

As an investment partner to some of the most sophisticated investors in the world for the last five decades, we have learned firsthand which practices are most likely to lead to investment success—and which practices can create the biggest roadblocks.

That’s why we built a different kind of OCIO business. One that is purposely designed to focus on what we believe are the key drivers of long-term investment success: building a portfolio uniquely calibrated for your goals, finding and accessing best-in-class global managers, and maximizing the long-term stability of your portfolio.

Advisory Services

We provide customisable advisory portfolio management. This tailored model works well if you prefer to be actively involved in investment decisions or need additional resources and expertise to support internal investment staff.

You’ll benefit from the full strength of Cambridge Associates’ knowledge, research capabilities, and investment platform. Working with a dedicated team focused on your goals, you’ll retain final approval on investment decisions.

Asset Class Mandates

For clients who want to outsource their alternative assets portfolios or other niche strategies, we can apply our investment expertise and robust investment network to a select part of your portfolio.
