Independence and objectivity underpin the fiduciary investment consulting services
Alan Biller and Associates provides US institutional investors.

An employee-owned firm focused exclusively on investment consulting since 1982, we are today one of the largest discretionary consultants in the US. For each of our clients, our seasoned professionals bring fiduciary responsibility, strategic risk oversight, an informed perspective, straightforward communication, and impeccable execution. 


Plan sponsors hire us to advise them on decisions about increasingly complex investments. We can act in both a traditional and discretionary (Outsourced CIO, or OCIO) consulting capacity.

As a non-discretionary consultant we:

  • Advise on investment and asset allocation policies

  • Conduct manager searches

  • Negotiate manager contracts and fees

  • Draft account investment guidelines

  • Monitor managers over time

  • Provide comprehensive performance reporting

  • Provide client education

As a discretionary OCIO, we may also:

  • Determine investment and asset allocation policies

  • Rebalance portfolios

  • Select and dismiss managers

  • Manage the portfolio according to its investment policies
