For more than 20 years, Brown Advisory has partnered with charities, endowments and foundations to help them achieve their investment goals.
Many charities seek our multi-asset investment capabilities where we design a bespoke portfolio that will meet their income and other long-term requirements. We build portfolios using individual equities and bonds alongside our own strategies and specialist external managers.
Some clients also come to Brown Advisory looking for exposure to a single asset class. We have a broad range of equity and fixed income expertise, including global and regional strategies as well as those with a sustainable focus. More information on our proprietary strategies can be found here.
In addition, we can support our clients with investment policy review, strategic advice, and specific guidance on mission-aligned investing.

Our dedicated investment teams are supported by Brown Advisory’s robust research capabilities. We use a combination of internally and externally managed strategies and leverage Brown Advisory’s equity, fixed income, private equity and alternatives research teams to source high-conviction ideas across the investable universe and construct portfolios that can deliver over the long term.
We appreciate the differences between the charities we look after and all of our multi-asset portfolios are bespoke. We spend time learning about our clients to ensure they receive the highest level of service and advice.
Brown Advisory believes that a thoughtful, sustainable investment approach can bridge the gap between these objectives and help organisations achieve both their financial and mission-related goals within a unified portfolio strategy.
For decades, Brown Advisory has worked with clients, both religious and secular, to develop value-centric, mission-based and sustainable investing portfolios. To do so, we use ESG research as a source of opportunity for driving investment returns, a mechanism for measuring investment risk and a way to help clients reflect their values and generate impact with their capital.
As stewards of our clients’ capital, we believe that it is important to draw from a wide range of sources to inform our understanding of various ESG issues affecting the investments we make. Brown Advisory is a member of a number of industry groups that help us to develop our understanding of issues either through providing access to subject matter experts or through helping to facilitate opportunities for us to engage with our investments to further our understanding of the company or other issuer.
Brown Advisory is a signatory of the U.K. Stewardship Code, reflecting our deep commitment to our clients, colleagues and communities. To read more about our stewardship efforts, including examples of engagement activity, please see our report.
We think about making an impact broadly—we use the term 'raise the future' to refer to how we view our purpose for our clients, colleagues and communities.
Brown Advisory is distinctive in many ways. Our ownership structure—where every full-time colleague is an equity owner—creates a remarkably entrepreneurial, accountable culture. This accountability serves our clients and our broader communities. We intentionally recruit colleagues who share our values around making an impact. In fact, one of our criteria for promotion to Principal and Partner is the energy and leadership that colleagues demonstrate in their communities. At last count, Brown Advisory colleagues served over 400 charities and nonprofits globally.
