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 121 employees and approximately $50 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, 2015. Assets under Advisement (AUA) 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. AUA 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 $46 billion in non-discretionary assets. Assets under Management (AUM) includes approximately $2.7 billion under discretion and approximately $854 million under discretion in FEG affiliates.
