    visit website Klausner, Kaufman, Jensen & Levinson Board Attorney

    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.

    Founded in 1988, Garcia Hamilton & Associates (GH&A) offers fixed income strategies for institutional investors. We manage only investment quality fixed income across the yield curve using no derivatives or leverage. 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 was named Intermediate-Term Fixed Income Manager of the Year by Institutional Investor in 2016 and 2015, Fixed Income Investment Grade Manager of the Year by Institutional Investor in 2014, and Core Fixed Income Manager of the Year by Emerging Manager Monthly in 2010.

    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 “A” 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.

    visit website Convergex Recapture Agent

    OVERVIEW
    Convergex provides global solutions considered to be among the best in the business—including our commission recapture programs. As one of the pioneers in commission recapture, we are a global leader with a long history of providing value-added execution services to institutional investors.

    RECAPTURE WITH CONVERGEX
      º Commission recapture was originated by a Convergex predecessor in 1986.
      º Client funds include annuities, pension plans, endowments, mutual funds, etc.
      º Customers are supported by an assigned client service representative, a sales person, direct access over the web to their records through our own proprietary accounting system specifically designed for commission recapture.

    Commission recapture is widely recognized as a highly effective way to help control transaction costs. As the U.S. Department of Labor noted in a 1997 report on commission recapture and pension funds, a properly structured commission recapture program can assist investment managers (and) reduce plan costs.

    With a Convergex commission recapture program, a significant portion of commission dollars is returned to your fund, directly benefiting its participants. Our commission recapture programs are easy to start and maintain. They give your investment managers maximum flexibility, are backed by a superb execution environment, are designed to conform to legal and regulatory requirements and are capable of delivering measurable savings for your fund.

    GLOBAL LIQUIDITY
    As a recapture provider, Convergex has always been a leader in finding ways to support our customers' recapture efforts. We were one of the first to expand recapture programs to include international equities. Today we continue to expand recapture opportunities for our customers by providing recapture through electronic execution which includes direct market access and program trading.

    We do not engage in "at risk" proprietary trading or market making. Our mission is to provide our customers with market efficiency and best execution. We aim to improve customers' execution performance by leveraging our global liquidity and lowering their transaction costs, so they have the opportunity to obtain the best execution.

    Our customers also have the option of executing through our Global Trading Network which provides access to over twenty brokers worldwide.
