For over 40 years, family offices have trusted Mawer to help them meet their financial goals. Our Investment Counsellors have extensive experience with the specific issues and challenges that face many family offices including:
Asset allocation and portfolio construction
Family and corporate governance
Intergenerational wealth transfer
Collaboration with other professionals
Our family office investment services involve the holistic assessment, custom tailoring and management of discretionary investment portfolios. A dedicated Investment Counsellor works with your family office staff, trustees, and other professional advisors while taking into account tax specifics, asset location, cash flow needs, financial planning strategies and other requirements as necessary when constructing your investment portfolio.
Investment Policy Statement Development
After a detailed discovery process, your Investment Counsellor will incorporate your investment objectives and risk tolerance parameters into an Investment Policy Statement (IPS). The IPS becomes the framework for all future investment decisions.
Discretionary Investment Management
Once your investment policy and asset mix have been established, your Investment Counsellor manages your portfolio on your behalf. This provides peace of mind for our family offices, by freeing them from making day-to-day investment decisions.
Great communication is one of the keys to having a successful client experience. Your Investment Counsellor will communicate regularly with you to review your investment strategy and ensure it remains suitable as your circumstances change.
We believe strongly in education. Our experienced Investment Counsellors can provide educational support to family offices on a variety of investment management topics.
You will receive reporting that is specific to the needs and requirements of family offices. Our comprehensive web-based reporting includes performance, compliance, trading activity, tax, and asset mix summaries.
