While our capabilities are as varied as our clients’ needs, we propose only those solutions best suited for your circumstances and objectives.
At Corient Capital Partners, our clients seek to sustain their wealth as a means of enriching their lifestyle and creating a legacy for the next generation. We focus our services and solutions on helping to maintain our clients’ permanent wealth, so that their goals can come to fruition.
The secret to permanent wealth lies in an understanding of the power of investment assets. No other strategy, no matter how sophisticated, does more to maintain and grow wealth than the ownership of investment assets. Research suggests that the wealthiest one-percent of U.S. households put three-fourths of their savings into investment assets. As a result, those assets generate interest that can be compounded, and dividends and capital gains that can be re-invested. These attributes create a profound competitive advantage in sustaining wealth.
The advantages of a thoughtful, well-executed asset allocation cannot be over-emphasized, as research confirms that asset allocation is overwhelmingly the primary driver of portfolio performance.
Research also reveals that the wealthiest one-percent of U.S. households achieve an annual rate of return that is approximately 2.5% higher than the returns of households in the middle three quintiles.
This outperformance is explained by a more effective overall asset allocation and, equally important, a more effective selection of the diversified investments within that asset allocation. By carefully selecting diversified investments based on their correlations to each other, investors can achieve a greater return with less risk.
Wealthy investors benefit the most from such smart diversification as they have an information advantage when it comes to tax efficient, cost efficient investment strategies. They also have access to value added strategies in asset classes like private equity and real estate.
Based on time-tested academic and quantitative research, Corient Capital Partners has developed a dynamic approach to smart diversification. Our proprietary process combines the best features of indexed investments, active managers and value added strategies.
