Transition and Trading Solutions

Our Transition Management Solutions business provides the tools and resources to ensure that transition events are executed smoothly, and the explicit and implicit costs of all portfolio changes are minimised.

Our core belief is that the best outcomes stem from an honest, unconflicted and customised approach to providing advice, oversight and analysis. In so doing, we seek to help our clients make better investment decisions consistent with their fiduciary responsibilities.

Our Trading Solutions business supports independent assessment and selection of Outsourced Buyside Trading.  Recent evolution of markets has impacted trading across both the buy and sell-side, resulting in regulatory and cost constraints.   These constraints have resulted in greater desire to outsource certain asset management functions, including Trading.

Our Transitions team is led by Steve Webster, a seasoned transition management professional with over 20 years’ experience at the ‘coal face’. Steve Webster was featured in The Global Investor Transition Management Guide 2020/21.
