Investment Advisory Services
DCM provides investment advisory services on a discretionary and non-discretionary basis

to as “Client Accounts”). Our firm provides a broad range of asset allocation, manager
selection and investment advisory services.
DCM provides objective guidance, customized solutions, and benefits of scale through
DCM’s open-architecture asset management platform. The firm’s investment platform has
a broad reach in terms of the regions, asset classes and strategies in which the firm invests,
ranging from traditional equity and fixed income to more sophisticated alternative
investment strategies including hedge funds, private equity, private credit, and real estate.
DCM builds customized portfolios for each client based on return, volatility, risk, liquidity,
and income objectives. DCM uses its broad platform of third-party managers to build
exposures and express its investment views. The firm designs a top-down asset allocation
policy for each portfolio and builds portfolios from the bottom-up using its network of third-
party managers that are selected based on their team, process, strategy, portfolio construction
and performance. DCM uses a combination of low-cost passive ETFs, mutual funds,
separately managed accounts, LLCs, limited partnerships, and individual securities
portfolios and optimize results.
Private Fund and Special Purpose Vehicles
DCM acts as investment advisor to a series of onshore and offshore liquid and drawdown
vehicles to amalgamate clients’ investments (collectively referred to as the “Funds”). These
vehicles are used to facilitate client access and create economies of scale.
Account Aggregation and Consolidated Reporting Services
DCM invests considerable resources to provide consolidated reporting and performance
benchmarking. Our goal is to provide consolidated reporting on a client’s assets across
multiple custodians, accounts, and non-custodial positions. DCM focuses on providing
transparent reports to assist DCM clients in understanding their portfolios, measure, and
frame performance, and make data driven investment decisions.
DCM generates all portfolio reports internally. The firm has a robust operations team that is
responsible for all accounting aspects including fund accounting, family office accounting
and treasury functions. DCM utilizes institutional accounting and performance reporting
software to provide clients with monthly consolidated reporting statements on their portfolio.
Statements report geometrically linked investment returns at the aggregate portfolio level,
asset classification level and individual position level. All calculated investment returns are
referenced to relevant benchmarks.
