Institutional investors represent the core of our client base. Our service offerings to institutions feature traditional strategic consulting, manager research, and fully-outsourced CIO.
With over 100 employees and approximately $45* billion in assets under advisement, we are large enough to have depth of research and big-firm access to high-minimum managers, but small enough to be nimble, focused on our clients, and offer small-firm access to niche low-maximum managers.
To help ensure our clients' interests come first, we are structured as an independent, privately-owned firm. We have broad equity ownership to further promote stability. For many of our clients, we are the "longest-termed committee member," providing a consistent voice amidst committee turnover.
*As of December 31, 2014. Assets under Advisement include the assets of FEG and its affiliated entities. Some asset values may not be readily available at the most recent quarter end, therefore the previous quarter's values were used for this calculation. The values may be higher or lower, depending on the current market conditions. These accounts are typically non-discretionary only. Assets under Advisement includes both discretionary assets, over which FEG has full trading authority, and non-discretionary assets which we advise and make recommendations on, but may not have authority to execute or facilitate trades on behalf of the client. AUA includes approximately $42 billion in non-discretionary assets. AUM includes approximately $2.6 billion under discretion and approximately $547 million under discretion in FEG affiliates.
