Investment Management & Consulting

Since 1984 our experience working with many different types of retirement plans have given us valuable insights into best practices for asset allocation, manager selection, and ongoing oversight and management. Using a proven process developed over the last 30 years we will apply this knowledge to produce a globally diversified, custom strategy that fits your goals and objectives.

Strategic Allocation

We will design a long term strategy that best fits your preferences for return and risk, and that is fully integrated with your expected cash flow, goals, and investment time horizon.

Tactical Allocation & Rebalancing

We actively manage short term expectations for the economy and the markets, using data from various free and paid sources to ensure your long term success. As needed, we will proactively update your portfolio(s) and the weighting between global fixed income, global equity, and alternative strategies.

Manager Search & Selection

We believe the best results can be achieved by using mainly active and in some cases passive investment strategies. We have developed a time tested and proven process for selection of investment managers that includes both quantitative and qualitative analysis, and the final selection or removal overseen by our Investment Committee.

Institutional Focus & Fee-only Platform

As a result of our independence and fee-only compensation structure, Talley Financial has access to thousands of funds from hundreds of different investment managers. This process allows us to look and screen through this universe of investment managers to identify and select only those that appear most suitable to meeting the needs of our clients’ portfolios.

Investment Consulting Services
