Destinations Sub-Advised Funds

In April 2017, Brinker Capital, a leading investment management firm focused on multi-asset class investing, launched the Destinations Funds, a series of 10 multi-manager funds advised by the firm. The Destinations Funds now serve as the building blocks of the Destinations fee-based mutual fund advisory portfolios, which launched in 1995 and currently have $9.3 billion in assets under management (as of 3/31/17). With the Funds being part of the Destinations advisory portfolios, Brinker Capital is able to provide a cost-effective solution to investors and a level fee structure that aligns with the Department of Labor Fiduciary Rule. In making this change, Brinker Capital was able to reduce existing qualified investors ’ overall costs by an average of 21 percent, and lowered the account minimum of the Destinations portfolios to $10,000, making an institutional multi-asset class investment experience more widely available to individual investors. The decision to evolve the operational infrastructure of Destinations has resulted in what Brinker Capital believes are two key benefits to financial advisors and investors: it enables the firm to lower costs and provides financial advisors and investors with greater access to unique investment strategies.
