“I believe there will be a big shift to OCIO in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.” – Andrew H. McCollum, managing director of investment management at investment industry researcher Greenwich Associates.
In a time of increased and prolonged market volatility, some institutional investors are looking outside of their firm for the right partner to achieve their investment objectives. According to recent reporting by Pensions & Investments, OCIO managers and industry observers agree that assets under management are likely to continue accelerating this year: “We’ve been interviewing asset owners during the COVID-19 outbreak and asking, ‘what keeps you up at night?’ In response, we’ve heard a lot of their rationale for moving to OCIO in what is likely to be a prolonged, challenging, uncertain market environment that makes it harder for internal staff to meet their fund’s long-term objectives,” Mr. McCollum said.
Each institutional investors’ investment objectives are unique, and finding the right OCIO partner who understands and can help reach them requires extensive research and due diligence.
That’s why Alpha Capital Management has partnered with Nasdaq to deliver the industry’s first suite of OCIO indices. The Alpha Nasdaq OCIO Indices are aimed at creating transparency for the OCIO industry and are designed to give investors and OCIO firms the ability to objectively measure OCIO performance against peers.
