Increasingly, investment managers offer clients a large menu of external asset managers who have passed the Firm’s due diligence process. This business model is known as “open architecture.” The asset managers are usually selected based on their style and expertise, and then assigned to manage a portion of the portfolio as directed by the underlying asset allocation model. Even when incorporating a UMHA, preferred platforms should still support trust functions such as principal and income management, disbursements and trading restrictions.
FamilyWealth AdvisersTM risk budgeting attempts to address the shortcomings of traditional asset allocation portfolios. Instead of picking a static stock-bond allocation, investors decide how much volatility they are willing to take. Then, they allocate their portfolios to stocks, bonds and other asset classes with the idea of spreading out the sources of volatility.
Austin Capital allocation strategies are top-down investment strategies which are globally diversified, strategically allocated, and tactically managed throughout the investment cycle. The following are key points of our approach:
Global View: Austin Capital managers are not restricted to investing in the U.S. markets, in specified market
caps, or in traditional asset classes. This provides the option to invest in any market anywhere in the world and our strategy of global diversification is unlike that of virtually any of the investment models with which we compete.
Focus on Risk Management: To achieve both diversification and the correlations essential to minimizing the effects of downside market moves, Austin Capital managers allocate to markets that the average investor would not typically consider in their allocation.
Blending Traditional and Non-traditional Investments: Blending traditional asset classes (such as bonds and equities) with nontraditional asset classes (which generally have a low correlation to traditional assets) allows Austin Capital to minimize systematic (global economic) risk.
