Cambridge Associates was founded 40 years ago to assist nonprofit institutions with the investment of their endowment assets. Today, we are a Global organization that provides investment planning, research and management to over 990 clients including nonprofit institutions, private clients (families) sovereign wealth funds and pension plans. The firm advises on the full range of assets and strategies, including equities, bonds, real estate, venture capital, hedge funds, leveraged buyout funds, oil and gas partnerships, and many other types of investments. We monitor the performance of nearly all major institutional investment managers and conduct in depth research on those we believe have potential to add value to our clients after fees. Our clients were amongst the earliest to invest in alternative strategies such as hedge funds and private equity so we have unparalleled depth of knowledge in these areas as well as substantial committed research resources and data.
Cambridge Associates has a staff of more than 1,100 professionals, including 200 Investment Directors and 150 Investment Associates, based in nine offices located in Arlington, Beijing, Boston, Dallas, London, Menlo Park, San Francisco, Singapore and Sydney. Ours is a long term business with long term client relationships. Accordingly, we take great care in selecting employees with both the aptitude and the willingness to build a long term career in a collegial, hard-working and intellectually challenging team.
