  • The unique features and differences of the OASISTM model from other asset allocation models
  • How the OASISTM framework could be useful to investors in times of market volatility and uncertainty
  • The ability of the framework to allow customization of assumptions and explicitly integrate scenario analysis
  • Areas where the model could be further enhanced, including its extension to other private market asset classes
