BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)– NEPC, a leading research-driven investment consultant with $1.5 trillion in assets under advisement, has expanded its Corporate Consulting practice group by acquiring a team from Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM). The additions include three new Principals – Alison Lonstein, Matt Maleri, and Joe Nankof – and a new Senior Consultant, Emma O’Brien, all of whom will support clients across NEPC’s business.

Prior to joining NEPC, Lonstein, Maleri, O’Brien, and Nankof served as Consultants and Lead Portfolio Managers at GSAM. The team formed while at Rocaton Investment Advisors, which was acquired by GSAM in 2019.

“Bringing this team on board is a direct reflection that the best consultants in the industry continue to choose NEPC as a place to grow,” said Craig Svendsen, Partner and Corporate Practice Director at NEPC. “This team’s experience and skillset strengthens our position as an industry-leading strategic partner capable of helping our clients weather volatile markets.”

Today’s news is part of a broader trend of former executives from Aon, Mercer, and Meketa recently joining NEPC’s leadership team.

Lonstein and O’Brien will join NEPC’s Defined Contribution practice group, while Maleri and Nankof will join NEPC’s Corporate Defined Benefit practice group. The new team members will also help support NEPC’s healthcare and insurance clients.

“We’ve had the utmost respect for NEPC’s leadership for years and are excited about joining at such a critical time for clients,” said Nankof. “As we began considering our next step, we wanted to find an independent firm with a close-knit, client-first culture. NEPC provides that culture and is an excellent fit on many different levels.”
