We intentionally limit the number of clients we serve so that we can provide the highest level of service.
Investure’s model of serving nonprofits, intentionally limiting the number of clients, and managing clients’ entire portfolios is unique in its focus and intention. Our model is designed to ensure that our senior team concentrates on generating excellent investment returns over the long term and engaging directly with clients.
We are committed to a measured pace of growth in terms of number of clients and assets under management. We add new clients only when we believe (1) we have the capability and capacity to do so without negatively affecting other clients, and (2) adding a new client would extend and deepen our and our clients’ networks.
Our model enables our team to build long-term relationships with clients’ investment committees, boards, administration, and staff. Our clients are a resource and extension of our network, and we believe that regular interaction with committees and staff challenges our thinking and enhances decision making.
