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.

More About Commonfund
who-we-are

How we execute our mission is the key difference that sets us apart, with three mutually supportive components grounded in a strong financial foundation.

We deliver higher value through the performance, service, and insight that underpin our two complementary investment platforms for institutional investors: Outsourced CIO (OCIO) through Commonfund Asset Management and Private Capital solutions through Commonfund Capital.
