Transition Audit

Preserving assets and providing guidance for over 40 years

Our industry leading analytics provide the transparency needed to evaluate all aspects of portfolio transitions.

Pre and Post-Trade Transition Analytics

In today’s environment, there is heightened pressure to ensure prudent and cost-efficient manager transitions. Inefficient transitions can result in millions of dollars in unnecessary costs. Implementing portfolio transitions is one of the few instances where plan sponsors have a direct impact on fund performance. This entails a level of oversight, investment expertise, and fiduciary responsibility that is different from typical plan sponsor oversight duties.

Our leading TCA and compliance analytics can provide you with the critical transparency, substantive due diligence, and insight into how your managers are handling fund assets. Not only do we provide you with customized metrics so you can control excessive trade costs, often the single largest expense of a fund, we give you the reporting and archiving necessary to mitigate investment and fiduciary risk.

Pre-transition Analytics establish realistic cost expectations, help identify problematic and risky areas of the transition, and provide the information necessary to craft prudent transition strategies.

Post-transition analytics provide a comprehensive post-mortem review of a transition manager’s execution efficiency and performance for the aggregate portfolio, as well as individual stocks.
