How it works

Advisors design multimanager portfolios and apply unique client customizations. Parametric aggregates all portfolios and implements a single centralized portfolio to minimize trading costs and taxes. Parametric manages ongoing portfolio activities, streamlining operational efficiency. CPM centralizes tax issues and the operational activities of opening, closing, trading, and maintaining accounts between Parametric and the advisor—where maximum coordination and customization can occur.

  • An advisor selects equity or fixed income managers for inclusion in their asset allocation portfolios.
  • Desired customization options—such as in-kind funding, exclusions, tax management, and responsible investment strategies—are incorporated into allocations.
  • Parametric establishes a direct feed with the advisor’s selected managers and receives model portfolio updates.
  • Client accounts are invested according to investment guidelines.
  • We coordinate all administration, rebalancing, cash-flow management, and customization features.
  • Daily reconciliation is made to the custodian and compliance before and after trading.
  • Clients are provided with consolidated reports.
