Funston Advisory Services LLC (FAS) is recognized as one of the nation's preeminent advisors to public retirement systems in the areas of governance, operations and risk intelligence. We are distinguished by the caliber and experience of our team and the quality and pragmatism of our advice. Our approach is based on leading practices, tempered with decades of practical experience based upon what actually works in specific circumstances.

Over the past ten years, FAS has assisted a growing number of public retirement systems and sovereign wealth funds in evaluating their fiduciary performance and identifying governance, regulatory, risk, policy, and operational process improvement priorities.
We wrote the book - literally - on helping public pension trustees better understand their responsibilities, the unique world of public retirement system governance, and how their system compares to leading practices at peer systems.
