An everlasting commitment to fiduciary values

The Glenmede Trust Company was founded in 1956 for one purpose: to serve in perpetuity as Trustee and Administrator of The Pew Memorial Trust, the initial funding source for the nonprofit now known as The Pew Charitable Trusts.

This was a bold objective and demanded two distinct qualities from the newly established Glenmede Trust Company: an everlasting commitment to fiduciary values and the longevity to fulfill its duties.

Over the decades, we have consistently combined these qualities with purposeful innovation to keep our clients one step ahead in this ever-changing world.

1960-70s

In its first years of operation, Glenmede’s primary responsibility was to administer The Pew Memorial Trust and two additional trusts established by the founders. We began to recognize that the investment platform created for The Pew Trusts could be successfully leveraged to serve other individuals, families and institutions.

With that in mind, we expanded our wealth advisory expertise into a comprehensive suite of services to include fiduciary, tax and philanthropic services and financial planning.

1980s

In anticipation of our clients’ need to diversify their growing portfolios, we introduced international investment strategies.

1990s

We began to supplement our suite of proprietary investment products with external managers. This gave clients access to a wider range of investment styles and expertise, while allowing us to focus on our core investment strengths.

We also introduced private equity and hedge fund strategies, and a proprietary venture capital fund, to provide clients with unique opportunities for nontraditional sources of return.

In order to better serve our growing client base, we expanded our presence beyond Philadelphia to include offices in Princeton and Morristown, New Jersey; Wilmington, Delaware; and Cleveland, Ohio.

2000s

Glenmede introduced quantitative investment strategies to give our clients more flexibility in defining and controlling the risk in their portfolios.

Glenmede Investment Management LP was established to make our family of proprietary mutual funds and separately managed accounts available to a broader group of investors, including corporations, public plans, foundations, endowments and not-for-profit clients.

We formalized two long-standing practices, Endowment & Foundation and Individual & Family Wealth, to better serve the unique needs of those clients.

2010s

Our New York City, Washington, DC, and Palm Beach, Florida, offices opened to serve clients and investment partners in these metropolitan areas.

2020s

We established a Private Wealth office in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as part of Glenmede’s targeted regional expansion strategy.
