  • Process

    Depending on the investment objectives and risk tolerance of each client, IEQ begins its investment process by researching and charting broad, macro-economic trends utilizing external and internal resources. IEQ uses fundamental, technical and cyclical analysis in conducting its macro-economic research. This research allows IEQ to determine which investment themes and broad asset allocations it believes offer the most attractive risk adjusted return potential. IEQ also conducts qualitative and quantitative research and performs extensive due diligence to find and assess private alternative fund managers or alternative fund manager platforms.

    For all third-party managers and underlying fund managers in Access Funds and Direct Investments, IEQ performs initial and ongoing investment and operational due diligence. IEQ employs a multi-phase approach to researching and selecting managers suitable for clients.

    These managers are evaluated on an initial and ongoing basis. A due diligence memorandum outlining the review and recommendation is provided to the Investment Committee for review and acceptance.

  • Strategy

    IEQ’s approach involves creating solutions that can utilise a range of public markets and exclusive private investments. By expanding the options traditionally available to individual investors, the firm is able to better customise portfolios to meet each client’s unique needs. Additionally, IEQ has the ability to dynamically shift amongst a variety of options to capitalise on opportunities created when the market environment changes and to stay on the cutting edge of innovation. This flexibility helps the firm generate predictable cash flow, minimise downside market volatility, maximise the power of compounding returns, and more.

  • Management fees

    IEQ’s management fees will vary depending upon factors such as the type of client account, the size and complexity of assets being managed, and the investment strategies being employed by the firm. Generally, clients will be charged an annual management fee of up to 2%.

  • Performance-based fees

    IEQ does not charge any performance-based fees (fees based on a share of capital gains on, or capital appreciation of, the assets of a client’s account).

    Private alternative investment managers typically charge performance-based fees pursuant to the governing documents of each alternative investment fund. IEQ will not receive any portion of those fees.

  • Ancillary services

    For Ancillary Services, the client shall pay IEQ an annual services fee as outlined in each client’s separate Ancillary Services Agreement. Fees will be determined based upon the nature of the Ancillary Services agreed upon between IEQ and client and will generally be paid quarterly in advance and in accordance with the client’s IMA. Fees paid by the client to IEQ under the Ancillary Services Agreement are solely for the services provided by IEQ with respect to the Ancillary Assets under the Ancillary Services Agreement and will not cover fees and expenses of any third parties.

What sets IEQ Capital apart

The firm has a strong risk management framework in place that helps them to identify, assess and manage risks associated with their investment strategies. This focus on risk management allows IEQ to minimise downside market volatility and generate more predictable returns for their clients.

IEQ’s commitment to transparency and communication is another factor that sets them apart. The firm works closely with clients to ensure that they have a clear understanding of their investment strategies and are kept up-to-date on any changes or developments. This commitment to transparency helps to build trust and long-term relationships with clients.
