INTERNOS manages both funds and segregated accounts, with the latter more suited to those with a larger portfolio or specific investment criteria.
Our approach to segregated accounts always begins with the client. By understanding a client’s risk appetite, tax position, approach to leverage and return requirements, we are able to consider the role any investment may play within a client’s portfolio and advise them accordingly.
Once the criteria are set, a strategy is agreed and investments sourced by our transaction teams. Acquisitions are transferred to our specialist asset managers and the portfolio kept under review by an investment manager.
With segregated accounts, the client often retains control or veto of the transaction decisions, but every key investment decision is subject to the scrutiny of our Investment Committee to ensure best advice to each client.
We were particularly pleased that two of the mandates were awarded to INTERNOS following a market search process and due diligence review by pension fund consultants Mercer and Townsend.
