The Hackett Group is an independent institutional pension consulting firm and a Registered Investment Advisory Firm (RIA), registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The firm provides customized investment counsel and consulting services to retirement plan sponsors. The Hackett Group is the successor firm to Washington Hackett, Smith & Company (WHS)–the groundbreaking organization founded 25 years ago as the nation’s first minority-owned pension consulting firm. The Hackett Group is 100% Woman and Minority owned.
At The Hackett Group we translate and integrate the activities of the investment advisors and money managers, the custodial bank, the transition managers and the actuary into an accessible format enabling trustees and fiduciaries to make properly informed decisions regarding the fund – making such decisions with absolute confidence. The hallmarks of this approach are training and education, building a sound, responsible fiduciary platform for the long-term benefit of plan participants and their beneficiaries.
The principals of The Hackett Group call upon over 80 years of direct, industry experience, relationships and strategic partnerships to assemble “customized” teams for client projects, as needed. These teams may include other consultants, financial analysts, actuaries, and specialized consulting support. Thus, the client benefits from high levels of expertise at low, notably competitive costs.
