Dahab Associates, Inc. was founded in 1986 on Long Island, NY, by Richard E. Dahab, CFA. The firm's foundation came from Rich's experience working on rocket guidance systems where he performed tracking error analysis on rocket trajectories. He also was co-inventor of the piezoelectric line of sight corrector, one of the precursors for modern image stabilization. Over 30 years later, Dahab Associates has grown to have offices in New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Florida. We help a diverse range of over 80 clients, including public funds, Taft-Hartley funds, corporations, endowments, foundations, and wealthy families, with over $17 billion in assets under advisement.
Using a 64-core computer and a proprietary asset allocation simulator, we will run hundreds of thousands of potential allocations with your cashflow assumptions and needs. Our consultants will then walk you through their recommendations and determine allocations that best reflect what you need and want out of your portfolio.
When you need a new investment manager, custodian, or TPA, we'll put your search out for public bid (protecting the anonymity of private clients). We don't use only a small selection of pre-approved managers, so you get the full range of candidates. Our consultants will give you in-depth analysis of their strategies so that you can select the manager best suited to your needs.
We can help you with all defined benefit, defined contribution, deferred compensation, OPEBs, health and welfare funds, family offices, endowments, and foundations. We'll help provide a complete picture of your investment portfolio's fees, investment strategies, and suitability.
We will help you craft your investment restrictions and investment policy statement to make sure the documents reflect current regulatory restrictions and risk preferences. Our team will help ensure that your managers are complying with these guidelines.
We will provide you with a full analysis of your managers' performance, allocations, attributions, and how they are performing relative to their peers.
There is a wide range of investment options available to instutitions. We'll help your trustees learn about strategies, risks, and potential rewards. Not only will we guide you toward strong choices, we'll also steer you away from potential pitfalls and high-risk strategies.

Instructions for how to submit RFPs are contained in individual RFPs, and include details on naming conventions and addressing requirements.
