A perception that you are "too small" to get the attention you deserve
Many non-profit institutions in the so-called “small” market (from start-up to upwards of $100 million) struggle to adequately manage their portfolios, whether those portfolios are endowments or other pools of money.
Often these institutions have not yet created a fully effective investment committee on their board. And they typically get a confusing array of information that does not adequately allow them to fulfill their fiduciary duty to the institution to oversee and steward these funds.
These institutions are often served with less attention than they deserve because of their status as “small.” The board chair of an institution with over $100 million once asked us at a proposal meeting, “Is our account large enough to keep your attention? Our current provider keeps changing advisors on us, and we have a hard time getting a return call.” Although we were initially surprised, we have since found this issue a common one.
We provide guidance to investment committees to create and/or follow appropriate procedures, implement and utilize a well-crafted investment policy statement, educate those on the committee who are not sophisticated about investments, and act as an overall resource for the committee and the larger boards they serve.
We simplify and present performance information to the investment committee to arm it with the information it needs to steward the portfolio properly and make informed decisions for the organization.
