Taft-Hartley Plans & Investment Solutions

We help guide Taft-Hartley benefit plans to solutions that meet their unique needs and objectives.

A Specialty Group Dedicated to Unions

The Taft-Hartley Solutions Group seeks to help trustees and their union members address their distinct investment, distribution and benefit plan challenges.

Building on over 160 years of experience in working with trade unions, we can leverage this legacy. For example, the AFL-CIO Building Investment Trust (BIT), a bank collective trust fund offered to tax qualified benefit and retirement plans with union member beneficiaries, may be able to offer such investors an opportunity to invest indirectly in commercial real estate.

Our Taft-Hartley Solutions Group exists to help us better serve our Union clients and their members.

We attend industry conferences, monitor the regulatory environment, and share our knowledge and experience firm-wide. We believe that this helps our group provide a higher degree of comprehensive service to your organization.
