Capabilities & Resources

Designed specifically to meet the needs of long-term institutional investors.

Socially Responsible Investing

Our investment programs are designed to enhance the financial resources of long-term institutional investors and we recognizes that environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) factors may have a material impact on long-term investment performance. Consistent with this belief, Commonfund considers ESG factors as part of its fundamental investment analysis and is a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).

Relationship Management

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 advice and 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 Account 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 a representative office in San Francisco, California.

Portfolio Analytics

We believe that successful investing requires a blend of quantitative and qualitative analysis. Our commingled funds and separate accounts are constructed with investment rigor. We utilize both internally and externally-developed tools and models that enable us to monitor client portfolios. Principal among these tools are:

  • The Commonfund Allocation Planning Model® (APM)
  • WIndham Portfolio Advisor (WPA)
  • RiskMetrics

Risk Management

Our approach to risk management is directed by 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. The two key elements of our risk management framework are our overall risk philosophy and our approach to risk coverage.
