Acadian invests on behalf of a wide range of institutional clients across the globe. Client types are broken down into four major groups; public, private, endowment & foundation, and sub-advisory. We take pride in serving a wide range of client types from the largest global corporations, to sovereign wealth funds, to local municipalities and public pension funds. Acadian offers the same level of service and customized investment solutions to institutions large and small.
Domiciled in over 25 different countries, Acadian's geographically diverse client base is spread across Asia, the Middle East, Europe and North America. We strive to customize our service and communication to all clients, regardless of location. Through business affiliates in Asia and Europe, as well as our North American headquarters, Acadian is committed to serving our clients locally and offers regular personal contact with our client service team either on a client's own premises, or in the location of a regional Acadian affiliate.
Acadian serves institutional clients, both large and small, from the corporate world and the public sector, among foundations and endowments, and within various sub-advisory channels. We are proud to work with many of the top 50 Fortune 500 companies who rank among some of the world's most sophisticated institutional investors.
Among public fund clients, Acadian has a long history of working with some of the largest public pension plans in North America, and currently invests on behalf of a number of top 10 plans. Globally, we work with public institutions in the Middle East, Europe and Asia. We partner with all levels of public pensions from large sovereign wealth funds to local municipalities. Each has different needs ranging from Taft-Hartley and ERISA mandates to customized SRI requirements for local unions and governments.
Endowment and foundation clients are another pillar of Acadian's client base, with our global reach helping to build ties with endowment and foundation investors both domestically and abroad. The academic roots of our firm have led to long-term relationships with many of these institutions and help Acadian understand and address the unique needs of endowment and foundation investors.
Partnerships within sub-advisory channels are the means by which Acadian is able to offer institutional-quality asset management to a high net worth client base. This is done through our sub advisory work with some of the largest global financial institutions and private banks, hedge fund of funds structures, as well as traditional mutual fund sub-advisory services.
A broad array of investors are included among Acadian's diverse client base, and exemplify our ability to design and structure investment strategies to meet the unique and diverse needs of all investor types. Acadian is proud of its legacy of offering the same high level of personal service, transparency, communication and collaboration to all clients, regardless of location, investment mandate, institution size, or unique requirements.
