Your clients have high expectations, your business needs to grow, and you want to expand your research resources. All while keeping costs low. Callan’s Independent Adviser Group (IAG) can help.
We’re focused on helping firms like yours stand out in a crowded marketplace, become more efficient, and grow while focusing on the needs of your clients.
Our dedicated consultants work with a select number of independent investment advisers and middle-market consulting firms. When you partner with us, you’ll get access to the same investment and implementation resources that our Callan investment consultants have. It’s like having a large, deep bench of tenured research specialists without having to hire them.
For independent investment consulting firms, it’s a challenge to:
Conduct thorough manager research
Analyze client portfolios
Keep up with trends

Performance Evaluation Program
Our Performance Evaluation Program (PEP) allows you to better understand the performance and portfolio characteristic patterns of existing or prospective client portfolios. It is powered by Callan’s database, which includes returns and holdings-based characteristics on thousands of investment products, indices, and peer groups.
Giving you efficient access to alternative investments
Callan has partnered with Proteus, an Indianapolis-based alternative investment technology firm, to provide alternatives due diligence expertise to the Proteus platform, which offers a complete private investment solution.
Investment advisers now have efficient access to alternative investments, in ways not previously available, through an enhanced due diligence process and Proteus’ proprietary and highly differentiated access platform.
Our people are our biggest strength and differentiator. We pride ourselves on a collaborative culture that supports a team-based approach to investment consulting, resulting in strong retention rates among our professionals and our clients.
