We have significant experience partnering with Taft-Hartley clients to provide retirement security for working Americans. As a fiduciary, we are committed to delivering tailored client service and investment strategies that help individuals meet their retirement goals.

Our Approach: How We Partner with Clients

We help Taft-Hartley clients identify the opportunities that align with their long-term goals by providing investment solutions in both traditional and non-traditional asset classes. We are committed to outstanding research, disciplined investment processes and robust risk management, with a focus on the following:

Multi-Employer Pension Strategy

Our pension strategists provide analyses on a number of issues relevant to multiemployer plans from plan design and investment strategy to insights on the broader regulatory landscape.

Broad Investing Capabilities

From custom alternative investment partnerships and multi-asset class solutions to traditional fixed income and equity portfolios, our platform enables us to support our clients’ strategy across the investment spectrum.

Dedicated Client Service and Knowledge Transfer

We evaluate each Taft-Hartley plan to understand its unique objectives and provide proactive client engagement. We bring together resources from across the firm to deliver timely insights on global markets and regulatory and industry issues. We also provide education and training for our clients and their investment consultants.
