A Decade of Recognition as a
Quality Leader!

NISA was again named a 2023 Greenwich Quality Leader for Overall U.S. Institutional Management Service Quality on February 14, 2024 – an honor attained for the last ten years. The award highlights asset managers who distinguish themselves from competitors by delivering superior levels of client service that help institutional investors achieve their investment goals and objectives.


Source: 2023 Greenwich Awards were announced by Coalition Greenwich on February 14, 2024. Between February and November of 2023, Coalition Greenwich conducted interviews with 708 institutional investors from 575 of the largest tax-exempt funds in the United States. These U.S.-based institutional investors are corporate, public, union, and endowment and foundation funds, with either pension or investment pool assets greater than $150 million. No compensation was paid by NISA in connection with obtaining or using this ranking. NISA was one of three 2023 recipients. Rankings do not represent any one client’s experience because they reflect an average of experiences of clients who chose to participate.
