Institutional Service Offerings

Beacon Pointe consultants are proactive partners who seek to be an extension of a client’s internal staff. They are dedicated to understanding all aspects of the institution’s investment objectives, conveying knowledgeable guidance, and providing exceptional service to a wide array of clientele.  As a fiduciary, Beacon Pointe utilizes a client-focused approach to investment advice intentionally separating the key duties of consultant, custodian, and asset manager, thereby minimizing conflicts of interest and always making decisions in the best interest of clients.

Hybrid of Services

While Beacon Pointe consultants work with most clients in a discretionary (Outsourced CIO) advisory capacity, we do also offer a hybrid of our services. The service model utilized is entirely dependent upon the level of involvement staff and committee members find ideal, the committee’s preferred decision-making structure and investment knowledge, as well as the availability of staff and resource.
