About

NexTier is a firm focused on helping investment organizations compete more effectively. Founded in 2012, we are headquartered in Chicago with professionals also located in Atlanta, Denver, New York, Philadelphia and San Francisco.

On average, our team possesses approximately 30 years of business experience and more than 25 years of investment management experience.

We are always looking to recruit additional talented individuals to grow our firm.

By building a robust team of independent contractors, we can draw on a pool of experienced functional experts to work for you without relying on junior personnel.
