Fund Manager Selection
Identifying quality fund managers is at the heart of what we do and is how we clearly identify the best investment programs. As your expert advisor, our role is to consistently monitor your plan’s investment managers on your behalf. We perform this duty as an interactive part of our ongoing investment review process.
We have an in-depth process that focuses on both quantitative and qualitative measures for selecting the right fund managers to match your investment needs and remain consistent with your investment policies.
Our Investment Committee
Central to our comprehensive services is our internal Investment Committee, comprised of the firm’s Senior Consultants, Advisors and Chief Investment Officer, and fully supported by our in-house research team. This team is responsible for all decisions regarding our internal investment processes and the overall advice we provide to each of our clients.
We process all of the relevant investment data and analyze a multitude of metrics to create information that is meaningful to you. We provide detailed reports that our clients depend on to carry out their respective fiduciary duties.
Pacific Portfolio identifies managers that meet certain criteria and exhibit certain characteristics, including: high consistency of absolute & risk-adjusted outperformance relative to benchmark & peers, high consistency of investment style over time, reasonable expenses relative to category peers.
Managers meeting quantitative criteria receive a detailed questionnaire covering such areas as: investment philosophy, Investment process, qualifications of personnel, explanation of periods of substantial over- or under-performance.
PPC Investment Committee Decision
Pacific Portfolio’s Investment Committee reviews and evaluates information obtained from the investment managers to determine which best meet our exacting standards. The Committee vote determines specific investment manager assignments to a specific asset class and investment style.
We believe that the best investors are well informed investors. We are committed to making sure every member of your organization feels informed and supported.
Not everyone is an investment expert. That’s why we are committed to working with your team to ensure they understand the value of the investment opportunities in your plan.
We can speak to your team in clear language to make sure they understand exactly how their program works and how it may truly benefit them.
Let us inspire your participants to self-direct their investments for retirement within the structure of the program that together we have crafted for them.
