FIS Group, Inc.
Institutional investors today traverse complex, dynamic, and at-times perilous markets to provide for the essential retirement, health care, arts, and social service needs of their beneficiaries and organizations. The singular skill sets of individual asset managers that have served these funds in the last century may no longer prove capable of achieving the risk and return goals of institutional investors on their own.
FIS Group offers an integrated and comprehensive investment approach. We harness the investment edge, focus, and high conviction portfolio structure of proven entrepreneurial managers in a tested strategic and macro-driven tactical framework. The result is customized client solutions that are flexible, sustainable, and empirically grounded.
Since 1996, our 100% employee-owned organization has been focused steadily on achieving investment success for its clients. Portfolios are tailored to maximize the potential for above-benchmark risk-adjusted performance. We accomplish this through insightful portfolio strategy, precise manager selection, and tactical management that is responsive to market conditions and opportunities.
