Why CEM?

Unique Global Databases

We have been collecting detailed cost and performance data from the world’s top pension and sovereign wealth funds for over 25 years.

Comprehensive Analysis and Reporting

Our reports and insights provide actionable insights and are used strategically as well as to help meet fiduciary responsibilities.

Knowledge Sharing

We work closely with hundreds of expert pension practitioners worldwide and are in a unique position to capture and share this expertise amongst our clients.

Independent and Objective

Benchmarking pension and sovereign wealth funds is all we do. We do not manage assets.


The information that CEM collects is sensitive. We are very careful about how we handle it. We do not disclose individual fund data or results to third parties.
