Commonfund is an investment management firm serving the institutional market with a particular focus on the nonprofit and public sectors including endowments, foundations, health care organizations and other mid-sized institutions. Commonfund was founded in 1971 with a two-part mission: to create investment solutions for nonprofits that previously did not have the scale and access to the best managers, and to create educational programs that would bring current best investment practices to institutional investors of all sizes and segments. Commonfund has changed and grown dramatically over the years, expanding both its investment solution offerings and the client segments served. Today, Commonfund manages close to $25 billion for over 1,300 institutions with a focus on three primary activities: Outsourced solutions; alternative investment strategies (hedge funds and private capital); and research and advice on a variety of investment and governance topics through the Commonfund Institute. Commonfund’s website, www.commonfund.org/AboutUs/ provides a more detailed overview, including its role and mission statement.
