Institutional

Netherby’s AdvisorWorks platform provides small- and mid-sized Bank & Trust companies, Family Offices and Registered Investment Advisory firms the ability to offer an institutional-quality investment solution without the challenges and costs associated with building and maintaining a similar capability in-house, significantly enhancing quality, efficiency and time to market.

Netherby can augment existing expertise or provide turnkey investment management.  This structure provides our institutional clients with the time and resources to focus on other mission critical items — building and maintaining stronger client relationships or engaging new prospects.

Netherby Institutional provides comprehensive outsourcing capabilities including Sub-Advisory, Outsourced Chief Investment Officer (OCIO) and Defined Contribution fiduciary and advisory services.  In a recent article in Investment News, approximately one third of advisers outsource investment management activities, including portfolio management, portfolio construction and the management of specialized or alternative investment asset classes (Investment News, January 8, 2018).

With our Institutional Sub-Advisory framework, we make investment management simple – allowing your firm to focus on building and maintaining strong client relationships.  Outsourcing the CIO function provides robust investment expertise without the cost of an internal team.

Private Wealth Services

Netherby Advisors serves as a trusted advisor to our clients.

Our mission is to provide clients with the confidence of knowing what they have and where they are going. Our singular focus is on the financial well-being of our clients. We devote our energies every day to being a trusted partner, empowering our clients with the confidence that their financial plans are organized, comprehensive and efficient, and that their families, their goals and their dreams are well cared for.

Netherby offers discretionary financial planning asset management services for Individuals, families, trusts and estates.

Investing is the process of taking risk in return for potential reward.  The challenge is to take the risks that offer the best potential reward and to construct a portfolio of varied risks and reward opportunities to help manage volatility along the way.  At the same time, we recognize that no two investors are alike, so we develop these bespoke investment allocations based on investment objective, risk tolerance and time horizon.

Netherby provides individual account investment allocation, portfolio management, re-balancing, reporting and account aggregation to clients.
