CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Taiko, a boutique, full-service OCIO solution built for RIAs, national advisory firms, broker dealers and trust companies, today announced the unveiling of its Strategy Gallery feature, a platform upgrade that efficiently sources investment solutions for advisors. This new and evolving functionality provides access to exclusive alternative investments, along with a highly curated gallery of separately managed accounts (SMAs) and custom portfolio strategies.
The new Strategy Gallery supplements and enhances Taiko’s institutional-caliber investing platform, enabling advisors to deliver bespoke investment solutions for clients. Advisors can search and readily access an array of pertinent information regarding investment managers, due diligence, holdings and performance. Each firm’s investment solutions will be unique to their identity, featuring custom managed and approved third-party strategies as an output of Taiko’s collaborative and consultative process. Strategy Galleries give advisors the option to allocate across client accounts to a particular strategy or select a custom combination.
"With technical expertise and an extensive background in institutional investment consulting, Taiko empowers advisors to provide personalized, high-caliber investment strategies to their clients,” said Chris Horvath, Managing Director at Taiko. “This new interface gives advisors an interactive, yet custom, curated gallery of investments, creating a more efficient pathway to source diversified investment solutions in both public and private markets.”
The Strategy Gallery displays clearly outlined and detailed investment strategies in a filterable format, providing advisors with a simplified workflow to streamline the process of identifying investments that meet their desired criteria. Alongside traditional investments, alternative investments are categorized by hedge funds, private equity, private credit, real assets, and other private market strategies. Advisors receive access to customized messaging and strategy updates for each investment opportunity, empowering them to communicate effectively and educate clients about new opportunities and allocations.
“Taiko’s Strategy Gallery is an intuitive and easily navigable feature that provides our advisors with valuable insight when sourcing investment strategies,” said Brian Vendig, CPA, AIF®, President of MJP Wealth Advisors, an independent RIA with approximately $1 billion in assets under management. “It represents the ideal blend of simplicity and completeness of information, affording advisors greater confidence throughout the investment selection process.”
