BofA Recognized as the Leading Provider of Outsourced Chief Investment Office Services for Foundations and Endowments
NEW YORK, NY – Bank of America has been named the largest provider of outsourced chief investment office (OCIO) services for foundations and endowments in the U.S by Pensions & Investments.1 The firm’s differentiated OCIO offering features a unique combination of portfolio management, strategic consulting and administrative solutions. Delivered through local offices across the country, nonprofit clients receive customized solutions that leverage the size and scale of Bank of America.
“Bank of America has a long history of serving foundations and endowments. This is an important and growing business, which has increased significantly in recent years,” said Jennifer Chandler, head of Philanthropic Solutions at Bank of America Private Bank. “This growth can be attributed to our team’s ability to address the increasing demands placed on nonprofit leaders by going beyond investment management to offer strategic consulting and advisory services.”
The firm has deep experience working with both nonprofit institutions and the philanthropic families and individuals who create and sustain them. Bank of America was recently recognized as the Best Private Bank Philanthropy Offering or Initiative in the Americas by WealthBriefing Wealth for Good Awards 2023.2
Bernard Reidy, National Endowment and Foundation Executive at Bank of America Private Bank, added, “While the core of our offering continues to be customized portfolio construction, asset allocation and portfolio management, the demand is increasing for holistic partners who can address broader challenges. We call the new approach OCIO 2.0 and it is shaping the future of the industry.”
Highlighted in a new article, OCIO 2.0 is when an OCIO provider goes beyond day-to-day investment management, becoming a valuable partner for a wide range of needs such as: strategic planning, finance and budgeting, governance & risk policies, leadership development, fundraising strategies and more.
