CHICAGO, MINNEAPOLIS, May 2, 2018 – Pavilion Advisory Group Inc. (Pavilion) has been named a Greenwich Quality LeaderSM for Overall U.S. Investment Consulting for the third year in a row, the only firm to win every year since its inception. The 2017 award, announced yesterday by Greenwich Associates (Greenwich), includes Pavilion among large U.S. investment consultants, similar to 2016.

This award is based on an annual research study with over 1,000 institutional investors conducted by Greenwich Associates, a leading provider of advisory services to the financial services industry. Every year, Greenwich conducts interviews with senior professionals at some of the largest tax-exempt funds in the United States and asks study participants to provide quantitative and qualitative evaluations of their investment consulting providers.
“In the last few years, the role of investment consultants has evolved tremendously to adapt to the new challenges clients are facing. Our strategy to grow and develop our firm’s consulting expertise, research coverage, and performance reporting capabilities has allowed us to better respond to clients’ evolving needs and we are happy to see that our work is being recognized.“ said Keith Mote, President & Managing Director of Pavilion.
In a news release issued May 1, 2018, Greenwich Managing Director Davis Walmsley noted that “Institutions’ need for ideas and solutions and new competition for advisory relationships from sophisticated asset managers are forcing investment consultants to up their game.” The news release also noted that those named 2017 Greenwich Quality Leaders for Overall U.S. Investment Consulting “demonstrated the ability to gain a deep understanding of client needs and deliver high-quality, tailored advice that helps institutions achieve their investment goals.”
Between July and October 2017, Greenwich Associates (Greenwich) conducted interviews with 1,059 senior professionals from 884 U.S. tax-exempt funds with assets greater than $150 million. Study participants were asked to provide quantitative and qualitative evaluations of their asset management and investment consulting providers, including qualitative assessments of those firms soliciting their business and detailed information on important market trends.
