Relationship Management

Ranked #1 two years in a row for Relationship Management by a recent Cogent report1, each Commonfund client has the benefit of a dedicated Relationship Officer. Your Relationship Officer can serve as a resource to your investment office, investment committee and board, providing insights on your investments with Commonfund as well as counsel on prospective investment decisions and investment policy considerations, including asset allocation, spending and distribution policies, governance and more.

While each investor has a dedicated Relationship Officer, clients are supported by a team of associates and support staff to ensure that client inquiries are handled quickly.  Further, our Investor Services team, an extension of our Fund Operations Group, supports client needs for investment subscriptions and redemption requests.  Plus all clients are supported 24x7 via our client reporting portal.

Our Relationship Management team is organized geographically. In addition to our headquarters in Wilton, Connecticut, we maintain representative offices in New York City and in San Francisco, California.

Risk Management

Our approach to risk management is expressed through the Commonfund Risk Management Framework.

This “living” framework was created through a collaborative effort involving all areas of Commonfund as well as input and feedback from our Board of Directors and our clients.
