What is a model portfolio—and what benefits does it offer?

A model portfolio is a mix of investment vehicles that are designed to pursue a particular investment objective, such as enhanced returns or income generation, while targeting a particular risk level. As an advisor, you can use model portfolios to construct and manage your clients' portfolios and help them achieve their goals. Model portfolios may also offer you other advantages, including:

Scale & efficiency

By spending less time on portfolio management, you can instead focus on goal-based planning and having more meaningful conversations with clients.

Investment expertise
