10+ Years of Actively Managing Structured Note Portfolios

Choosing and managing individual structured investment securities can present challenges, particularly across multiple client accounts. Outcome Driven Strategies (“ODS”), offered in partnership with Cornerstone Advisory, provide the benefits of structured investments through professionally managed separate accounts, relieving advisors of the operational and investment burdens that may come with individual Structured Investment purchases.

Why Consider a Separately Managed Account Structure?

Enhanced Yield

• Enhanced Yield in a Low-Yield Environment
• Coupons can be paid in bullish, neutral, or moderately bearish markets
• Net returns above comparable investment grade investments

Operational Efficiency

• Maturities
• Coupon reinvestment
• Protection monitoring
• Event projections
• All managed by ODS rather than the advisor

Better Execution

• Better product terms negotiated with pooled capital compared to individual investment
• Drive competition within issuer network to improve terms and lower structuring cost
• No additional wholesaling fees

Risk Diversification

• Multiple investment banks utilized in each strategy
• Laddered approach to diversify risk
• Optimized maturities based on each bank’s unique funding grid


Outcome Driven Strategies separately managed accounts leverage the expertise of two industry leaders, iCapital and Cornerstone Advisory, to provide best-in-class structured investment management services for financial advisors. Both companies have been at the forefront of structured notes investing and portfolio allocation for over 10 years.
