Renowned Investment Team Brings New Low-Cost Growth Opportunities to Orion Platform 

OMAHA, Neb. (June 23, 2020) —  Orion Advisor Solutions, the premier provider of financial advisor technology and investment solutions, announces a new offering with State Street Global Advisors (State Street), and the availability of a suite of low-cost model portfolios. The partnership provides Orion users, both through Communities, Orion’s model marketplace, and  Orion Portfolio Solutions, a division of Orion Advisor Solutions and leading Turnkey Asset Management Program (TAMP), access to the pedigree and financial acumen of State Street’s Investment Solutions Group, creating value for their clients and cultivating low-cost growth opportunities in the midst of a global crisis. 

The Investment Solutions Group, a 50+ member investment team that manages money for central banks, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, endowments, and other large institutions, designs and manages each newly available portfolio. Situated in major finance hubs around the world, the team averages 15 years of investing experience across a wide swath of disciplines and perspectives. Advisors on Orion’s platform can now draw on Investment Solutions Group’s experience and thought leadership, through a diverse suite of asset allocation, tax-sensitive, and income strategies. 

Creating opportunities with long-term vision and tax sensitivity 

Available on Communities and through Orion Portfolio Solutions, State Street’s Strategic Asset Allocation ETF Portfolios offering includes six model portfolios, spanning from conservative to maximum growth, and representing a distinct mix of SPDR® ETFs. Built from the forecasts of State Street’s Investment Solutions Group, these portfolios provide global diversification based on their target balance of risk and return, helping advisors deliver a consistent investment approach with lower turnover and greater cost efficiency. 

Users of Communities and Orion Portfolio Solutions can also access State Street’s Tax-Sensitive Strategic Asset Allocation ETF Portfolios, spanning from conservative to growth. These portfolios may help advisors capture the federal, state, and local tax advantages and lower default rates of municipal bonds located in the core U.S. bond exposure. 

A time-tested strategy for income value 

Available in Communities, the State Street Income Allocation ETF Portfolio primarily uses State Street’s pioneering SPDR ETFs as a cost-effective foundation of income-producing assets to seek competitive returns. Multiple asset classes comprise the portfolio, including dividend-paying equities, investment-grade and high-yield bonds, hybrid securities, and global REITs. 

A unique, active approach to alpha 

Advisors in search of uncorrelated alpha can access State Street Active Asset Allocation ETF Portfolios through Communities. Helmed by a multi-dimensional team of strategists, the portfolios blend quantitative rigor and qualitative insight to find opportunities in temporary security mispricings. The models articulate risk through the Investment Solutions Group’s proprietary Market Regime Indicator, identifying five distinct patterns within the market cycle to arrive at a portfolio risk target. 

“State Street Global Advisors and the SPDR Family of ETFs are one of the biggest names in asset management, and they bring a great deal of optionality at an extremely low cost at a time when it is critical for our users to show their value to clients,” said Orion Advisor Solutions’ Chief Investment Officer, Rusty Vanneman, CFA, CMT. “By compounding resources and synergies across the brands, advisors can immediately tap into the newfound opportunities these models create, whether through Communities or our full-service TAMP offering.”
