At Taiber Kosmala & Associates, LLC, we recognize that in the investment business, you often do well by taking the other side of the trade.

Therefore, while the industry trend across the country has been to launch new business lines, sell to larger organizations, and explore additional means of generating revenue, we are committed to maintaining a conflict free consulting platform so that we can truly place clients’ interests first.

Our core values and business structure allow us the freedom of intellectual integrity in the pursuit of strong results for our clients. We believe the best way to maintain objectivity and provide a client with unbiased advice is to structure our firm in such a way that eliminates all conflicts of interest.

  • We avoid the potential conflicts of interest resulting from offering other products or services to clients such as outsourced CIO services, proprietary fund of funds, brokerage & bank services, and other multi-manager discretionary products.
  • We are privately held, with no affiliates or parent company.
  • We do not charge investment managers to be part of our database or to be eligible for consideration by clients.
  • We do not allow investment managers to sponsor client conferences or institutes.
