Aon Hewitt Investment Consulting, Mercer and Summit Strategies Group have been named as market leaders in the US investment consulting industry by market intelligence firm Greenwich Associates.
Greenwich named CAPTRUST Financial Advisors, Marquette Associates and Pavilion Advisory Group as Quality Leaders for mid-sized consultants.
This is the first time Greenwich Associates has ranked US investment consultants, as well as firms operating in business development among US asset managers, where Artisan Partners, Baillie Gifford, Fidelity Institutional Asset Management, and T. Rowe Price were named as Quality Leaders.
Greenwich Associates managing director Andrew McCollum says: “All the firms recognised as Greenwich Quality Leaders demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the client’s needs, they have the expertise to recommend the right solutions, and they identify the most effective managers to implement and execute these strategies.
“These Greenwich Quality Leaders excel in the many interconnected components of effective new business development, including brand awareness, sales activity, sales effectiveness, and consideration as a viable provider.”
