CINCINNATI—December 8, 2016—Fund Evaluation Group, LLC (FEG) was recognized by Chief Investment Officer as one of three asset management finalists in the category of Investment Outsourcing.1 The nomination recognizes the best in institutional investing. The winner will be announced as part of Chief Investment Officer’s seventh annual innovation gala, to be held on December 12, 2016 in NYC.
“We are honored by this recognition, and we pay tribute to our many OCIO clients who have entrusted us as partners in investment and growth of their portfolios,” FEG managing principal Gary R. Price, Head of FEG’s Investment Solutions, said. “With the majority of our clients in the nonprofit sector, we are especially proud to be partnering in the stewardship of critical investments that fund their meaningful missions.”
Price, who founded FEG’s OCIO division 13 years ago, said the faith of FEG’s OCIO clients has allowed the firm to grow and strengthen its OCIO operations with dedicated advisors and investment resources.
Industry research anticipates continued growth in the OCIO sector2, as smaller clients favor the benefits of outsourcing, including an investment approach with more discipline, continuity, and accountability. “Research indicates continued growth for OCIO, as clients realize the benefits of hiring an outsourced investment team and back office, versus dedicating greater internal resources to build their own team,” Kathryn E. Mawer, CFA, FEG’s leading expert on the OCIO industry, said.
Price said, “We will continue to provide expand our OCIO expertise and resources to meet the growing client needs.”
