Open Architecture model with delegated portfolio management

Since 1998, ABN AMRO Investment Solutions has been designing innovative and tailor-made investments solutions by selecting the best-positioned funds from a universe of world-renowned fund houses, including large but also more “niche” asset managers. In 1999, Asset Allocation Advisors, the first French independent multi-management structure, began the first consultant role with an Institutional and launch the first diversified multi-management funds two years later.
The asset management company is specialized in Multi-management through Open Architecture 1.0 and about 300 external funds cover more than 70 asset sub-classes. The signature is to combine own investment management capabilities and ability to select the best specialists in the world through an open architecture platform.
 
Since 2007, ABN AMRO Investment Solutions’ Open Architecture model has evolved towards selecting first-class investment management expertise, not always available through investment funds and on-boarding them on our Luxembourg fund platform: € 15 billion under management delegation and a unique platform with a wide choice of asset classes: 36 delegated portfolio management strategies (mandates): this is the Open Architecture 2.0 through delegated portfolio management.
 
A wide choice: today our offer of UCI delegated to external portfolio managers (more than 30 managers) ranges from US, European, Asia, Global and emerging equity managers, US, Euro, Asia, Global and emerging markets investment grade and high yield bond managers to alternative managers.
 
Quality: our selected  managers have demonstrated their ability to generate outperformance within their specific investment domain.
Serenity: our experts constantly monitor the selected managers and adjust the allocation towards those managers depending upon market conditions.
Transparency: information on portfolio composition is available on a daily basis to enable our clients to benefit from consolidated reports.
 
In total, a team of 12 analysts split between Paris and Amsterdam research, analyse and select the external managers that we put at our clients’ disposal either through existing UCI or tailor-made solutions.
