Endowments and Foundations
For over 30 years, Means Wealth Management has managed assets for non-profit institutions in a variety of sectors including municipal, cemetery associations, churches, women’s health organizations and private foundations. Indirectly, individual team members at Means Wealth also hold positions on non-profit boards, investment committees and are frequently asked for advice by institutions of varying size.
This experience has provided our team with additional insight into the complexities endowments and foundations must navigate in managing their assets. As a fiduciary advisor, Means Wealth truly understands the fundamental concern that private foundations, endowments and not for profits face: Risk. Risk mitigation is at the heart of the portfolio construction process. We partner directly with each institution to understand their unique financial situation and optimize the risk/return characteristics.
Means Wealth will also consult with the board of the organization to ensure they fully understand the most important issues. This provides the board with the opportunity to leverage our deep institutional experience to navigate critical questions in a timely manner.
