The search for technology to support model portfolio management and portfolio construction services is increasing as companies look to centralise and scale their model portfolio management and compete in a rapidly growing market.

BRISBANE, Australia, June 26, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — The utilisation of model portfolios among financial advisers has emerged as a transformative force, with staggering growth in model portfolios projected to continue over the next decade. And with good reason, they offer an efficient method for diversification, risk management, and portfolio construction, with personalisation features to match the unique financial goals and risk tolerances of clients.

Financial advisers are also increasingly turning to asset managers for assistance in managing the model portfolios they build and maintain for clients.  Jacobi’s model management technology enables asset managers to scale the portfolio construction services they offer financial professionals. The technology enables a platform that can centralise performance and risk analytics, integrate investment workflows, and produce professional reports to share with clients.
