Commonfund is an institutional investment firm that delivers solutions for strategic investors within both the nonprofit and pension investment communities. Commonfund was founded in 1969 with a two-part mission, to create investment solutions for nonprofits that previously did not have the scale and access to the best managers. As importantly, our charter was to also create educational programs that would bring the current best investment practices to institutional investors of all sizes and segments. Insight that has helped grow fund values during an increasingly challenging investment environment. Commonfund has changed and grown dramatically since that time--expanding both our investment solution offerings and the client segments we serve. Yet, our mission has remained the same: to enhance the financial resources of our clients and to improve the investment management practices of our clients.
Today, Commonfund manages over $24 billion1 for nearly 1,500 institutions with a focus on three primary activities:
- Outsourced solutions
- Alternative investment strategies
- Private capital
Our only business is investment management and we are active in all sectors of the global capital markets - in both public and private markets.
