Foundations and Endowments

Your Institutional Fiduciary Partner

Trustees are increasingly challenged by the complexity of asset management, fiduciary responsibilities, and their organization’s operational needs. Our approach frees board members and staff to focus on their mission by combining an institutional investment platform with specialized services designed to help meet philanthropic and administrative needs.

Partnering with an Outsourced Chief Investment Officer (OCIO) strengthens board governance. We serve as an extension of the organization, much like an internal investment department.
