Our diversified client base includes public funds, jointly trusteed plans, endowments and corporations. The firm is 100% employee-owned, with approximately 91% held by minority and women partners and is certified as a MBE firm.

GH&A employs a top-down approach in its fixed income portfolio construction. A broad fundamental analysis of duration, yield curve, and sectors results in a defined set of parameters for the individual issues that fit the portfolio. The portfolios are dominated by treasuries, agencies and agency guaranteed mortgage pass-through securities. As an internal rule, all corporate bonds must be rated a minimum of single or better. The high quality bias of the issues utilized reduces credit risk while ensuring ample liquidity. In addition, GH&A does not invest in non-dollar bonds, Yankees, high yield securities, zero coupon bonds, nor derivatives in its strategies. Likewise, the strategy does not utilize any leverage.

Klausner, Kaufman, Jensen & Levinson
At the law firm of Klausner, Kaufman, Jensen & Levinson, a Partnership of Professional Associations, we devote our practice exclusively to the representation of retirement and benefit systems and related labor and employment relations matters. Today, we are among the most highly regarded firms in North America in the increasingly crucial area of pension issues.

As a major player on the national level in public employee retirement matters, we often call upon a comprehensive research system capable of accessing virtually all relevant legislation at the federal level and across the 50 states. In so doing, we are able to monitor – and in some cases anticipate – changing trends in the law to a degree that most general practitioners would consider a luxury to be funded by their clients. To us, it’s simply part of being a responsible and pro-active advocate.

In addition, we frequently furnish state and local governments throughout the United States with background information on many of the newest and most complex issues involving public retirement systems. No matter how much proficiency we develop, though, our relationship with those we represent can still be summed up in one sentence: As important as it is to know the laws, it is even more important to know our clients.
