Equities Fixed Income Hedge Funds Private Equity, Real Estate and Energy

Equities

We follow a philosophy that low-turnover, concentrated portfolios derived from sound bottom-up fundamental research provide an opportunity for attractive performance results over time. We have a culture and firm equity ownership structure that help us attract and retain professionals who share those beliefs, and we follow a repeatable investment process that helps us stay true to our philosophy.

We construct balanced portfolios for private clients, nonprofits and institutions depending on the needs of the client. We can be 100% open architecture, using third-party managers only, or we can put together a mix of internal and external strategies, whatever is in the client's best interest.

Fixed Income

We follow a philosophy that fixed income strategies built from a foundation of stability coupled with fundamental credit research can seek to generate alpha and control risk. We have a culture and firm equity ownership structure that attract and retain professionals who share those beliefs, and we follow a repeatable investment process that helps us stay true to our philosophy.

We construct balanced portfolios for private clients, nonprofits and institutions depending on the needs of the client. We can be 100% open architecture, using third-party managers only, or we can put together a mix of internal and external strategies, whatever is in the client's best interest.

Private Equity, Real Estate and Energy

Private Equity, Real Estate and Energy

Brown Advisory has incorporated private equity and real estate investments in client portfolios since our founding. Today, we can provide that exposure in three distinct ways.

Feeder Funds and Multimanager Funds
We introduce clients to investment opportunities in early- and late-stage venture capital and buyout funds, as well as select real estate funds. We also construct these feeder funds into multimanager funds to make private equity investing as easy as possible for our clients.

Customized Private Equity Portfolios
For most clients, private equity is one component of a balanced portfolio that we manage. Other clients, however, come to us specifically for custom-built private equity and real estate portfolios.

For more information on private equity please click here or contact Jacob Hodes at 410-537-5315 or jhodes@brownadvisory.com.

Colleague of the Year Lousia Cottrell, Messaging and Events Associate

Every year the firm asks all colleagues to nominate one of their peers to be the Colleague of the Year and therefore winner of the Hopkins Cup, which is named after Brown Advisory’s first president and chief executive officer, David Hopkins.

The winner for 2015 is Louisa Cottrell and here are a few things that her colleagues had to say about her:

"She is the most efficient, hardworking and Brown Advisory-focused person I know."

"Her continuous hard work is exemplary and motivating. She is often the first one to be in
the office and the last one to leave."

"Louisa covers a lot of different areas for the London office. However much she has on her plate she is always ready to help and is extremely approachable."

Thank you Louisa!
