ETF model portfolios each have unique characteristics and finding the right strategy can be a challenging task. When using models and managed accounts, remember that you are not just buying an investment solution - you are also selecting a provider to partner with over the long term. As a result, you may want to employ some best practices when conducting due diligence on investment providers.
State Street Global Advisors partnered with Greenwich Associates to conduct a study to better understand what investors are looking for in their model portfolio strategies and providers. From this research, we developed a comprehensive due diligence framework that may help you differentiate between model providers and select the best partner to help you achieve your specific goals.
