Investment Management

Endowments and foundations need much more than sound investment advice. They need an independent partner like AMG National Trust Bank that can help the investment committee understand and explore issues relevant to enhancing return and managing risk.

AMG customizes investment strategies for each organization it serves and takes a disciplined approach to investment management. We emphasize independent, unbiased investment recommendations; well-constructed investment policies; portfolio diversification; the importance of economic analysis in assessing investment opportunities; and frequent interaction between AMG advisors and investment-committee members.

Endowments and foundations bear serious responsibility for prudent asset stewardship. An independent, unbiased investment advisor – one not motivated by commissions or personal gain – is essential to stewardship. AMG is a fee-only, independent firm that does not accept commissions for any recommendations.

Economic Research

Scholarly economic research and data-driven scenario analysis is paramount to successful long-term investing and understanding how different asset classes are likely to perform in the coming years. Quantifying the likely return potential and risk characteristics of various asset classes enhances AMG’s ability to design an asset allocation that has a higher potential to create outsized returns, as compared to investment portfolios built using a historical analysis of asset-class performance. Complimenting the macroeconomic research expertise, AMG utilizes a global approach to understanding tactical and strategic global market behavior.
