It has become commonplace for committees to hire investment advisory firms to assist with the oversight and management of their asset portfolios. Although, committees may not have the opportunity to follow a thorough process when selecting an advisory firm.
This process can be simplified if committees conduct proper due diligence to identify, evaluate, and either select or confirm an advisory firm relationship through the request for proposal (RFP) process.
Based on our experience with hundreds of endowment and foundation clients, and our experience with nearly 2,000 RFPs, CAPTRUST will walk through a simple step-by-step process that covers the following:
- What are the proper steps to issuing an effective Advisor RFP?
- What questions should be included in the Advisor RFP?
- How to evaluate responses and conclude the Advisor RFP process.
