Wilshire Associates' mission is to provide innovative investment solutions and objective, independent investment advice to investors throughout the world.
Since its founding in 1972, Wilshire Associates has evolved from an investment technology firm into a global advisory company specializing in investment products, consulting services, and technology solutions. We have worked throughout our history to maintain a strong commitment to our clients and to retain a position of leadership in providing innovative ideas to the investment industry.
Wilshire was an early innovator of the integrated asset/liability modeling technique, as well as risk management and portfolio optimization models. These models help plan sponsors and institutional investors arrive at optimal portfolios based on their specific needs. We also produce investment management tools designed to create index funds, optimize portfolios, develop dedicated and immunized bond portfolios, and measure performance. The Wilshire 5000 Total Market IndexSM, and the Wilshire Trust Universe Comparison Service® (Wilshire TUCS®) — two very familiar products in today's investment community — were developed in our first decade.

For over 35 years, Wilshire Consulting has served many of the world’s largest asset owners and taken great pride for its innovations in the areas of performance fees and style mapping in equity management. These capabilities, combined with an established infrastructure and industry-leading technology, have helped Wilshire Consulting effectively deliver full discretionary advisory services or Outsourced Chief Investment Officer (OCIO) Solutions to institutional investors seeking economies of scale for the ultimate benefit of their constituents. As of 12/31/16, Wilshire Consulting has $1 trillion in assets under advisement and $7.5 billion in discretionary assets under management.
