Easy and affordable access to alternative investments doesn’t mean compromising on quality or results.
-Jay Clayton, Former SEC Chairman
Q: What does Third Wire do?
A: We are a registered investment advisor (RIA) specializing in managing a diverse range of alternative investment products and service solutions. Our focus is to assist advisors and family offices in seamlessly integrating alternative investments into their client portfolios. It’s important to note that we exclusively serve advisors and family offices, and we do not offer direct access to individual investors. We are here to support your practice, not compete for your clients.
Q: How is Third Wire different from other alternative investment platforms?
A: We manage a variety of multi-strategy and multi-manager funds designed with transparent fees and accessible minimum investments. We provide both liquid and illiquid investment options, covering a diverse spectrum of styles, strategies, and risk profiles. Importantly, we do not engage in ‘pay-to-play’ practices with managers. Our due diligence on underlying managers is thorough and conducted in-house. We take pride in our careful selection of managers and stand behind our decisions. Ask the other platforms if they do the same.
Q: What kind of support does Third Wire offer?
A: We provide comprehensive education and dedicated support throughout the entire investment journey. With a strong background as experienced fiduciaries, specializing exclusively in alternative investments, we focus solely on guiding wealth managers through the intricacies of the alternative investment industry and helping to improve their odds of success.
Q: What are the benefits of using Third Wire?
A: By partnering with us, wealth managers can easily provide a full service alternative investment offering to their clients that is supported by a highly experienced team of industry veterans from leading firms. Additionally, we provide access to the latest industry research and insights. Third Wire supplements this with user-friendly technology and tools that streamline portfolio analysis, the investment process, monitoring, and client management.
Q: Can Third Wire create custom solutions?
A: Yes. We develop alternative investment solutions to help wealth managers enhance their practice, deepen client relationships, and grow their HNW client base. Our capabilities allow you to meet client-specific objectives by tailoring our existing offerings to them or by building something entirely new. We also provide an Outsourced Chief Investment Officer (OCIO) solution for organizations seeking to develop and manage their own alternative investment program.
Q: Is the investment process online?
A: Yes. While it does seem funny to have to ask that question in 2023, we’re constantly surprised by how many platforms still rely on paper at some point in their process. We’re happy to say that Third Wire’s investment process, portfolio analysis, and client management are all digital. Although, if you insist on the old paper way, I’m sure we could begrudgingly find a way to make that work.
