Your Institutional Investing Partner in Asset Management

Commonfund is an asset management firm founded in 1971. As one of the pioneers of investing long-term portfolios for nonprofits and other institutions, we’ve been helping investors achieve their goals for five decades. Our two-part mission is to enhance the financial resources of our clients and to help them improve their investment management practices. As a nonprofit organization ourselves, we’re able to align our interests with our clients and provide institutional quality investment programs and services that are uniquely designed to fit their needs.
