How we work with you

The Investment Committee Collective is a group of independent asset consultants who share common beliefs on how markets work, the need for clearly documented investment philosophies, processes and the importance of objective decision making to meet defined performance goals.

We meet weekly to discuss

  • the long-term investment outlook
  • the key assumptions and settings which form the basis of Asset Allocation advice
  • discuss emerging trends and investment opportunities identified through our networks.

One of us will be your primary point of contact, but we are all available to clients of the ICC  from time to time, either as a back up or as a source of specialist knowledge.
