Aligned With Your Mission

As a fiduciary, we have been honored to help not-for-profit organizations, fully aligning the investment portfolios to help support each organization's mission, for nearly 30 years.



We serve as a comprehensive outsourced investment department for our not-for-profit clients. We are an extension of our clients' team, creating a complete investment program that is designed uniquely for each organization. We create customized portfolios and provide a complete list of value-added services.

Comprehensive Investment Framework

Managing portfolios for not-for-profits and charities requires a deep understanding of each client’s needs and constraints, as well as capabilities across all asset classes. A not-for-profit board takes their fiduciary duty seriously and needs to be confident their portfolio will help them invest into perpetuity while also meeting annual gifting and operating needs.  


We provide this experience, as well as broad investment capabilities and guidance across all asset classes.

Our Objectives-Based Asset Allocation® process is a leading-edge, proprietary approach to asset allocation. It is designed to address the shortcomings of other asset allocation methodologies and more effectively align the portfolio with organizational goals. Whether a not-for-profit's goals are to outpace standard benchmarks or to achieve a distribution level over inflation, we can help.

And, we deliver our asset allocation solutions through our broad asset class capabilities:

•    Fixed Income
•    Equity
•    Alternatives


  • Charitable Organizations & Trusts

  • Religious Organizations

  • Educational Endowments

  • Private Charities

  • Fraternal Associations

  • Business Leagues

  • Social Welfare
