Partner David Jumper and CIO Ben Pace Check share insights on Cerity Partners’ investment process with CityWire.

CityWire USA, “On the Road” – Whether you’re in the bustling streets of New York City or the quiet suburbs of Minnesota, RIAs and broker-dealers have much on their minds when it comes to asset allocation shifts, the hunt for alts and where model initiatives are headed this fall.

Starting off my local meetings, I took the 7 line to Grand Central Station, where Cerity Partners’ office is conveniently located. Cerity Partners is a private equity-backed RIA that was founded in 2009. With 10 offices serving high-net-worth individuals, businesses and nonprofit organizations across the US, it has over $21 billion in assets under administration.
