“The hallmark of our organization is its passion for the personalized approach to the asset planning process. No one situation is the same, therefore, no one solution applies.”

-David Wall, Founder & President

Services We Provide

Wall & Associates provides a full range of professional institutional investment advisory and consulting services. Working with our clients, we develop an overall plan for the administration and management of plan assets. We work closely with the client to implement the strategies developed for the plan, and monitor the performance of the plan to measure the progress toward the stated goals and objectives. We will:

Provide trustees with objective information on a broad spectrum of investment decisions. Assist in evaluating the merits of each investment product and money manager, with respect to track record, expenses, management style, and quality

Conduct manager searches as requested by the Board of Trustees, including the responsibility of issuing all requests for proposals, review of said proposals, and attendance at all necessary meetings to interview prospective money managers

Assist in the selection of a custodian for the safekeeping of plan assets, issuing all necessary proposals, review of said proposals and attendance at all necessary meetings to interview prospective custodians

Evaluate and monitor expenses associated with the administration of and management of the plan

Review and develop investment policy guidelines including, but not limited to, asset class choices, asset allocation targets, and risk diversification

Ensure compliance with the stated investment policy, and when appropriate, state statute

Provide quarterly reports summarizing the value of plan assets, current asset allocation, and risk associated with the plan. Additionally, manager and aggregate plan performance reports are prepared. These reports illustrate performance relative to the appropriate Capital Market Index. Peer group comparisons are also provided for plans that retain separate account managers
