Asset Manager OCIOs Face Conflict Questions from Search Consultants

by Sam Heller | FundFire April 17, 2023 [Manager Analysis Services strongly prefers conflict-free OCIO models] – OCIOs are not blind to the concerns around their investment strategies, said President of Manager Analysis Services Chris Cutler. Many of the coverage teams at OCIOs will work with clients to avoid these conflicts altogether, he added.

“There are many very high-quality coverage teams at those firms,… and they proactively avoid any conflicts,” he said. “I’ve seen these cases where they have already avoided all the internal products just because they don’t want these conflicts.”
