How it works

How it works graphic how it works ring graphic

Within a multistyle portfolio, institutional investors can choose their preferred managers. The operational activities of opening, closing, trading, and maintaining accounts are centralized between Parametric and the program sponsor, allowing for maximum coordination and customization.

Efficient multimanager implementation

Our CPM approach is designed to solve common multimanager portfolio challenges. Because multiple strategies are held in one account, we can offset trades by each of the underlying managers, reducing custody and trading costs while providing lower turnover and consolidated cash flows to reduce cash drag.
