Frequently Asked Questions

Does Vestmark take sole discretion on the accounts traded via the Model Trading Service?

No, Vestmark Advisory Solutions (VAS) takes shared discretion, as a sub-advisor, for the purpose of executing trades only. This service trades accounts and sleeves in line with model positions and drift tolerances. The advisor on the account maintains the overall discretion for manager selection, and can implement model changes, set drift tolerances and trade parameters, etc.

Does the Model Trading Service trade only models distributed through Vestmark Manager Marketplace?

No, this service trades models from any approved source, including home office/ internal product teams, third party managers and strategists, individual financial advisors, and branches – in addition to any of the 650 models from over 140 managers on the Vestmark Manager Marketplace.

Does an advisor or firm need to be on the VestmarkONE® platform to utilize the Model Trading Service?

An advisor or firm would NOT have to use the VestmarkONE® platform in-house to outsource the trading of models via the Model Trading Service. For a firm that wants to outsource account opening, administration, trading and rebalancing, we connect to your custodian, you would provide the investment instructions and then leave the rest to Vestmark.
