The Hyas Group was formed in 2008 and has a specific and dedicated focus on institutional plan sponsors. The firm benefits from having professionals who have served clients for decades. The vast majority of Hyas Group employees have worked together previously for more than a decade, so the relationships extend beyond the formation of the firm. In fact, one of the key driving factors in the founding of the firm was the desire to produce value by utilizing those years of experience, providing an array of well-executed services that truly fit our clients’ needs.
