QUOVO
Quovo provides endowments, foundations, and advisors with an elegant web dashboard that aggregates their investment accounts – across custodians, portfolios, and managers – and generates a suite of tracking and interactive analysis modules on top of the data. This easily configurable, modular Quovo portal empowers staff, CIOs, boards and advisors to get real-time answers to key portfolio questions that once required considerable paperwork and coordination.

Quovo empowers non-profit stakeholders to:

  • Get an-at-a-glance view of their allocation across asset classes, institutions, and managers. Find out where your money really is.
  • Easily track performance and risk, as well as view “worst-case” and “what if” scenarios.
  • Visually assess how well they, or their managers, are tracking to expectations and investing policy statements .
  • Check in on how they’re doing, and if investments are going off track versus goals or policies - at any time, for any time period, and all online

Quovo is used by foundations who:

  • Are juggling multiple external managers or have assets at multiple institutions/accounts and want to keep tabs on their portfolios 
  • Want to reduce the effort and overhead of coordinating across multiple managers, accounts, and institutions when it comes to examining and reporting on their investment portfolios
  • Are looking to give their advisors an easy access to point to examine and review their whole portfolios (or any part) over time

New Quovo clients who are AGM members receive 20% discounted off the first two years of their Quovo subscription. (For a new Quovo client to qualify for the terms of this Partnership, the client must have first heard of Quovo or initiated contact as a direct result of Forum or AGM communications promoting Quovo, including but not limited to e-mails or online posting on the Forum or AGM website.)
