Strategic advice for endowments & foundations

The team at Woodforest Wealth Strategies is well-versed in the challenges facing endowments and foundations, and has an in-depth understanding of the responsibilities required to manage significant assets, while adhering to organizational mandates.

Through tactical asset allocation, our investment strategists develop portfolios that strive to maximize return for a minimal level of risk. They access extensive resources and analyze objective research to identify and select investment opportunities that align with your values and demonstrate the strong potential to contribute to the sustainability of your organization. The advisors understand the dynamics of wealth and will adjust the portfolios to adapt to changing conditions.

Our team stands ready to serve as an extension of your investment committee and provide critical support in fulfilling fiduciary responsibilities. We help our clients implement strategies to effectively manage their portfolio, stewardship duties and spending policy needs.

More and more today, endowments and foundations want their investment choices to reflect their core values and philosophies. As proponents of socially responsible investing, known also as environmental, social and governance investing, our team can implement an investment strategy to accommodate this important goal.

Our relationship with you and your organization is ongoing, and we are diligent in monitoring and rebalancing portfolios to ensure they stay consistent with long-term goals. Knowing the importance of your work and desire to uphold the foundation’s mission drives all of us at Woodforest Wealth Strategies to serve you.
