The group spans four key sectors: Fee Benchmarking & Negotiation, Enhanced Monitoring, proprietary Risk Analytics and Strategic Asset Allocation and Investment Policy Design, with asset class data supplemented by insight on investment implementation. Tackle specific challenges or combine for fuller Portfolio Health-checks. Each service was initially developed at the request of specific clients who sought clearer, more customised information upon which to base key investment decisions and improve the management of their portfolios.
From sector-specific to full portfolio monitoring, bfinance Monitoring is highly customisable. The service is light-touch when it can be and high-touch when it needs to be. We spend time to understand our clients up front in order to deliver useful information and qualitative insight.
bfinance Risk Solutions enables our clients to track exposures, make more informed investment decisions and improve diversification. The methodology, based on published academic research, has been developed to avoid the pitfalls of purely backward-looking risk analysis, and uses a common library of factors irrespective of asset type or investment style.
Fee Reviews & Negotiation
bfinance fee reviews deliver actionable insights on the charges that investors are paying to external managers across all asset classes and sectors. Detailed, customised assessments are designed to support each client’s specific goals.
Board-ready fee review packs incorporate multiple layers of analysis including client-customised filters and metrics, commentary, identification of key patterns (e.g. variation by mandate size) and insight on relevant trends (e.g. over time).
