Why Marquette

Four values help set Marquette apart from other investment consulting firms. The pragmatism of our people comes from a client service culture grounded in real-world experience — such as work at plan sponsors and investment managers. We place client interests first through the complete independence of our expertise. Our focused service approach helps institutions control the three key factors that lead to successful investing. And our careful research is known for its practical engagement of the most important issues investors face — presented in clear, concise publications.
