NEPC brings expertise in traditional and alternative investments to a full range of clients including defined benefit and defined contribution employee benefit plans (corporate, public, and Taft-Hartley), endowments, foundations, insurance, and private wealth investment programs.

The goal is to make meaningful, sustainable improvements to the efficiency and overall performance of our clients’ investment programs.

NEPC has experienced consistently strong, controlled growth over time thanks to client referrals. We’ve also continued to receive excellent client ratings in independent national surveys, giving us the confidence to say that our clients regard us as a valuable and attentive partner.


NEPC leverages more than 28-years’ experience and our extensive, ongoing research to help corporate clients make better informed decisions regarding their defined benefit pension plans.

Defined Contribution

Regarded as one of the premier defined contribution consulting practices in the United States, NEPC partners with our clients as a fiduciary to control the business risks associated with operating plans and help deliver the benefits intended.

Endowments & Foundations

With decades of experience consulting to endowments and foundations, we build investment programs that balance the demands of today’s operating budget and long term strategic goals.


The healthcare industry has unique needs, and NEPC is uniquely qualified to meet them. We currently consult to over 35 healthcare organizations representing over $90 billion in plan assets.


We have a thorough understanding of the insurance industry’s complex tax, regulatory, and liability environments and the insight to develop sophisticated, innovative investment programs to meet the needs of this sector.

Private Wealth

Bringing the same kind of rigor and thought leadership to our private wealth clients as to our institutional clients, we offer expert guidance in pursuing investment goals, capital preservation and philanthropic interests, legacy planning, and multigenerational investment education.

Public Funds

With extensive experience and a clear understanding of the opportunities and challenges of defined benefit plans, we help build customized investment programs that meet our clients' unique investment goals and fulfill their fiduciary obligations.


The various factors impacting today’s Taft-Hartley benefit plans make asset allocation, manager selection, and performance measurement more crucial than ever. Our forward thinking process assists clients in meeting their needs and goals.
