The OCIO trend continues to gain traction. In fact, total OCIO assets under management have grown to $1.43 trillion in March of 2017 from $599 billion seven years ago. OCIO assets could even reach $2.7 trillion by Q1 2022 according to the most optimistic growth forecasts by Cerulli Associates. 

Key growth markets include nonprofits, corporate defined benefit plans and healthcare systems with many predicted OCIO opportunities on the horizon.

  4. OCIO have the ability to integrate various assets into one cohesive strategy
