Spectrem Group was founded in 1990 with the vision that companies competing in the trust and investment industry were in need of a consulting and research firm that specialized in their markets. Rather than having to educate our consultants about the investment, trust and retirement industries, our consultants ran businesses in these industries prior to joining Spectrem. Realizing the importance of basing our strategic analysis on fact-based research, Spectrem was able to expand its capabilities by acquisition of key research providers in the areas that touch its businesses. This included the acquisition of Access Research and research studies from the former PSI.

Today Spectrem has increased its research capabilities to focus on a broad range of industries as well as a wide use of multiple methodologies to most effectively meet the needs of our customers.
