OMAHA, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Orion Advisor Solutions, the premier provider of transformative wealthtech solutions for fiduciary advisors, announced today a new advisory solution through boutique investment management firm City National Rochdale (CNR). The relationship will bring CNR’s Intelligently Personalized SM portfolios for high-net-worth individuals, families and foundations with more than $1 million in investable assets to the Orion Portfolio Solutions (OPS) platform. These tailored, proprietary solutions are designed for advisors serving investors who desire personalized portfolio management strategies that address their unique situation relative to investment objectives, tax sensitivities, income needs, or existing holdings with low cost basis or concentrated positions.
“We’re excited to add City National Rochdale to the Orion Portfolio Solutions platform,” said Ryan Beach, president of Orion Wealth Management. He added, “City National Rochdale is known for its highly tailored portfolios and unique client blueprinting process that fits each investor’s individual needs. They have set the standard for customization and personalization, and their resources and expertise will be a tremendous benefit to independent advisors looking to provide a new level of service and opportunity for high-net-worth investors.”
Peter Green, National Head of Sales and Business Development at City National Rochdale, added, “We are excited to offer our highly personalized wealth management services on Orion’s platform. Orion offers robust wealthtech capabilities for advisors which will be further enhanced by the addition of City National Rochdale’s deeply personalized investment strategies.”
Each investor’s portfolio is built from the ground up, with CNR serving as a “holistic” manager, meaning it manages client assets using a broad spectrum of asset classes. Specialized and core strategies include: Equities; Core Fixed Income; Opportunistic Income; and Alternative Investments and Real Assets. CNR works with an investor’s existing holdings and develops a tax-sensitive transition plan to fit individual needs. OPS advisors will also have the capability through CNR to build portfolios to complement non- portable assets (e.g., current 401(k)s, company stock, other managers, etc.).
Portfolios will be actively managed by dedicated portfolio managers that work side-by-side with independent advisors. More than 80% of CNR’s investment team members are Chartered Financial Analysts®, and the firm enjoys a 90%+ client retention rate—a testament to their superior service, personalized benchmarking and research-driven portfolio design.
“A research study from PWC® shows that two-thirds of high-net-worth individuals say they want more personalization in their wealth management relationships, particularly in financial planning and investment strategy,1” Beach continued. “The addition of City National Rochdale is part of Orion’s ongoing commitment to provide advisors with a full spectrum of highly personalized and customized offerings and enhances Orion’s suite of solutions designed for high-net-worth investors.”
