Opalesque Industry Update - Wilshire Consulting, the institutional investment advisory and outsourced-CIO (OCIO) business unit of Wilshire Associates, today announced the appointment of four company executives, Bradley Baker, Rose Dean, Ali Kazemi, and Ned McGuire, to the position of managing director.

These senior-level promotions are a reflection of Wilshire Consulting's continued progress and development, as the firm works to ensure that the business has a strong leadership structure in place to serve its growing client base.

"Bradley, Rose, Ali, and Ned have each distinguished themselves through thoughtful leadership and exceptional client service, and we are delighted to congratulate them on their new roles," said John Hindman, President of Wilshire Associates. "Wilshire is deeply committed to developing talented leaders and I look forward to watching this group support clients on a new level with Wilshire's meaningful, thoughtful consulting solutions."

She also currently serves on the Fixed Income/LDI and Private Equity/Credit Asset Class Committees. She joined Wilshire in 2015 after running a start-up alternative investment consulting business, where she advised on opportunities focused on alternative investment strategies. She spent the first half of her 16-year career in the financial markets as a fixed income trader and a portfolio manager.

Ali Kazemi provides investment and risk management consulting services to public and corporate pension plans, foundations and endowments, and insurance companies. He joined Wilshire in 2001 and worked for many years in product development and client servicing with Wilshire Analytics' Total Fund Analytic products before joining Wilshire Consulting to help build the risk management team, which he also now heads.
