Welcome to the new blog of NexTier Companies, LLC. We will be writing about a number of topics within the investment management industry, but first I want to introduce you to our firm. 

Jim Casselberry and I started this firm because we felt there was a need in the institutional investment management space for a talented and experienced team to provide consulting solutions to the industry. In particular, we feel we can assist emerging managers to understand the institutional landscape, to prepare for institutional investment manager search scrutiny and to capitalize on access to the institutional marketplace.

As we have begun talking with other participants in this industry ecosystem, it has affirmed our belief that our business offering can make, both traditional and alternative, investment managers more effective and successful.

Our senior consultants, including Jim and I, average 25 years of business experience working at traditional and alternative investment managers leading their investment process, serving as consultants to many of the largest institutional investors and working at institutional investors allocating and selecting Managers, across all asset classes. This experience makes us uniquely qualified to assist emerging managers in finding, developing and implementing best business practices to achieve success.

Our staff has worked with or for an array of different organizations, including JP Morgan Chase, Northern Trust Company, BlackRock, Inc., PIMCO, the City of Chicago, General Motors and a myriad of other corporations, endowments and foundations, investment advisors and consultants, public pension plans and federal, state and local governments
