Independent, Unbiased Investment Strategies Driven by Data and Experience

At Taiber Kosmala, we believe that data have a story to tell, but data is incomplete. To interpret that data, you need experience, you need expertise, and you need skepticism to see the herd, not follow the herd.

An Investment Strategy Built on a Solid Foundation

Intelligent, data-driven, experience-based solutions are what we deliver to all our partners. We’d love to use that approach to meet your investment needs.

Actionable Advice Based on Original Research


Too many firms in the industry generate voluminous reports, read numbers back to you, and  balk at offering an opinion.

We do more. We deliver actionable advice based on our experience, our knowledge of your needs, and our insight into the market. Our insights are based on:

  • Over 1,000 meetings per year across a vast network of industry contacts.
  • Independent research.
  • Technology as a tool for enterprise knowledge management.

We won’t hide behind a model on a laptop. You deserve more, and that’s what we’ll deliver.

Independent Strategies: Never Biased, Never Compromised


We’re 100% employee-owned, and our loyalties are to each other and to our clients. We don’t push products, and we aren’t beholden to private equity, banks, brokerage firms, or a large parent organization.

That means you get:

  • Unbiased advice based on your needs.
  • Independent analysis based on the market.
  • Individualized strategies derived from our expertise.
  • The unvarnished truth.

At Taiber Komsala and Associates, we have nothing to sell except our reputation. We have nothing to push except unbiased expertise.

Our belief is that by providing an engaging, rewarding, and collaborative professional environment where talented professionals focus objectively on each unique relationship, we will exceed client expectations and develop the successful long-term partnership all clients desire.”

Technology As a Driver


How does a boutique firm compete against large market big box competitors? What used to take an army of junior level employees days now takes a person a matter of minutes through the use of technology.

The industry no longer competes on headcount and number of pages in a report. It competes on value-added guidance and technology-enabled functionality. We scale through:

  • Real time enterprise level market intelligence.
  • Technology enabled RFPs and DDQs.
  • Industry leading modeling, reporting, and analytics software.

Experienced Consultants Working for You


It is our goal to have the industry’s most well-informed consultants for our clients.

When you meet, they should have the knowledge and expertise to address questions, solve problems, and offer guidance with confidence. That’s what you will encounter when dealing with Taiber Kosmala. This means:

  • A dedicated three-person team assigned to each relationship.
  • Tailored expertise and guidance for your needs
  • A continuous flow of information and insights

We don’t believe in shuffling you through a million intermediaries. Pick up the phone and talk to your senior-level consultant, every time. That’s our pledge to you.

Rethink the Research

The industry gives birth to a new mousetrap every so often with the promise that it’s a better way to operate.

Portfolio engineering, portfolio insurance, risk parity, smart leverage, black boxes, portable alpha, trading algorithms, risk budgeting, etc.  Ultimately, they’re all just wrapping risk and return with a different bow. Our team has institutional experience dating back to 1984. We’ve seen this movie already, and will cut through the marketing spin to help you see more clearly.
