The Chestnut Solutions InstituteTM

An independent forum for investment solutions providers and their partners, dedicated to advancing the future of the investment solutions industry

Solutions providers and investors are limited by the industry’s current lack of standards, norms, and transparency. This inhibits investors from understanding the wide range of valuable capabilities available to them and easily selecting the solutions provider who is best aligned with their needs and objectives.

The Chestnut Solutions InstituteTM’s independent market research and thought leadership provides greater clarity to this valuable industry segment, benefiting investors, providers and the solutions ecosystem at large.

The Institute offers Full Membership and Research Membership options to firms across the investment solutions industry.

The Shape of Solutions in 2024

Expectations for the capital markets in 2024 and beyond vary widely. The increasing market complexity and volatility are the primary reasons investors continue to seek investment solutions of all types, from multi-asset products to full portfolio management by OCIOs.
