Nonprofit Organizations

Prudent Stewardship That Seeks to Optimize The Resources That Support Your Mission

Like many leaders of nonprofit organizations, you face a growing list of challenges such as managing your operating budget and funding sources. For charitable entities, new donations can be hard to nurture year after year and market volatility can take a toll on existing investments.

The management of institutional portfolios has never been a simple matter, and today, investment and fiduciary responsibilities are more demanding than ever before. You need an investment consultant who not only understands these sensitivities, but has the knowledge and experience to execute your investment strategy within your risk parameters - while supporting the long-term mission and strategic goals of your organization.

For more than 25 years, The Kelliher Corbett Group has provided full-scale, customized solutions for a wide range of institutional clients. We offer a unique client experience: the close relationship you expect from an investment boutique, backed by the industry leading analysis and fiduciary oversight of a global leader.

Like you, we care deeply about the work we do. At the heart of our practice is our pledge to earn your trust through prudent stewardship of your assets.

For decades, we have helped institutional trustees, directors and investment committee members to manage and meet their fiduciary responsibility. We are guided by a set of core principles that include acting in the best interest of our clients, providing objective investment recommendations tailored to each client's needs and maintaining the highest level of ethical and professional standards.

Your dedicated team's top priority is to understand and consult on the specific needs of your organization in a collaborative, professional and educational manner — one that places your goals at the center of our relationship.
