Our services

SAA Consulting

For over 20 years, we have been advising our clients with regards to their strategic asset allocation (SAA). We analyse the current situation and optimise the distribution of asset classes to create a robust and above all, efficient portfolio. Consideration is given to individual risk/return requirements and, if applicable, regulatory requirements. We use the most advanced analytical methods, considering realistic assumptions of the underlying distribution functions and subjecting each input parameter to a critical evaluation process.

As part of our implementation services, we also support you in the selection of suitable asset managers, in setting up a suitable investment infrastructure (e.g. setting up a segregated account) and integrating ESG criteria into your SAA.

Risk Management Consulting

Berenberg has many years of in-depth risk management expertise. As part of our risk analysis, we critically assess different risk methodologies, their measurement and show how individual risk budgets can be derived from them. In addition, we model how different risk management strategies affect an underlying portfolio.

On this basis, we determine your individual risk tolerance and risk capacity, considering your return targets. Based on this, we derive the type and scope of the appropriate risk management strategy with optional integration into the SAA that may have been prepared in advance. In this context, our advisory expertise includes dynamic hedging strategies (risk overlay), tail risk hedging strategies and value protection concepts.

ESG Consulting

The market for sustainable investments is growing steadily and has reached a size whereby  there is a significant need for professional ESG advisory services. Institutional investors are confronted with complex challenges. Examples include the transfer of a personal understanding of sustainability into an overall ESG policy, the definition of corresponding investment guidelines to the selection of suitable ESG investment strategies and the selection of appropriate investment instruments. The implementation of a holistic ESG investment reporting framework and the consideration of regulatory requirements are also becoming increasingly important.

As part of our dedicated ESG consulting, we advise you individually on the key issues relevant to you and provide answers - in personal dialogue or in the form of a comprehensive workshop.

In focus: alternatives for liquidity investment

Berenberg Liquidity Solutions

Berenberg Consulting develops customised solutions for the complex challenges faced by institutional investors regarding the problem of negative interest rates. To this end, the team has developed an investment solution that makes it possible to generate a return above Euro money market rates with comparable risks. Our Liquidity Solution can be individually tailored to bespoke investment horizons and risk tolerance. We thus offer an attractive alternative to traditional overnight and term deposits, but without the associated guaranteed of negative interest rates.
