Cambridge Associates has been working with pension plans, government agencies and sovereign wealth funds for decades. Recently, many of these investors have sought to adopt a more diversified approach to investing and have begun allocating a significant portion of their portfolios to alternative assets. As their portfolios become more complex and diversified, many of these investors have discovered that our business model and expertise allows for a more customized approach than that of traditional pension consultants or investment firms offering funds-of-funds.
We recognize that corporate and government clients have unique needs and challenges beyond those of endowment clients. Our work with corporate and public pensions, as well as asbestos trusts, uses a liability driven framework when creating an appropriate asset allocation and implementation approach. Our work with sovereign wealth funds has included important investment operations and governance issues such as establishing investment offices and creating an effective decision-making framework, in addition to custom alternative asset programs.
