With an intense client focus and the commitment to calibrate every decision with client success in mind, NEPC possesses distinctive strengths. Independent and therefore impartial by design, our firm consists of seasoned experts — curious and engaged thought leaders who know their areas of specialization, know their clients, and have clear, well-founded opinions.
NEPC is an independent, employee-owned, full-service investment consulting firm. We don’t manage assets, we have no proprietary products, and we are not affiliated with any investment funds. Consequently, we provide advice that is unbiased, free of conflicts, and tailored to one objective — meeting your goals.
At NEPC, questioning leads to clarity, and clarity fosters breakthroughs. We respect conventional wisdom — when it’s wise. Following a traditional path can be entirely appropriate in building a particular portfolio. That said, we don’t shrink from breaking with standard methods when we think that a new direction offers a better approach. Expect our analysis to be thorough and our recommendations to be made with conviction.
Our clients demand more, and so do we. Each client is unique and, as a result, has unique investment goals. We listen closely and customize our solutions to pursue your goals with intelligence and rigor. In fact, customization is an aspect of collaboration, as we see it, and it’s a hallmark of who we are. From investment policy development and risk control to asset allocation, investment manager searches and beyond, we tailor every step of the process to you.
A consulting firm has one key asset: its people. Our consultants have to earn client confidence, and ideally, enduring relationships develop. NEPC has cultivated and recruited exceptional professionals with diverse strengths — seasoned experts who understand the complexities you face and how to help you navigate them successfully.
Superior advice is grounded in superior research. With one of the largest dedicated research teams in the industry and an increasing focus on innovative strategies, our expertise spans asset allocation, traditional investments, and alternative strategies. Our research professionals specialize in particular asset classes and excel in assessing asset managers and their investment capabilities as well as market trends and new products.
We are proud to disclose the results achieved by our clients. Our innovative, research-driven recommendations, delivered by an experienced staff, have resulted in 23 out of 26 years of outperforming the national averages and a high level of confidence in NEPC.*
