AN INDEPENDENT SPIRIT
The Glenmede Difference
Independence and Reliability
We are strong, financially sound and proudly independent. Our independence gives us organizational focus and provides the stability that makes us a reliable partner. Private ownership means our interests directly align with our clients.
Singular Focus and Objective Advice
We focus exclusively on investment and wealth management–we are not distracted by other lines of business and do not have commercial banking, underwrite securities, make loans or sell insurance products. We were founded with a fiduciary mindset in 1956, and place client interests first so they can rely on the objectivity of our advice and recommendations.
Personalized Service and Accessible Expertise
We believe each of our clients deserves solutions tailored to their specific needs and service teams who know how to help them fulfill their goals. Our clients have open access to our best thinking and advice across all levels of our organization.
Innovation and Creativity
Our stability and independence attracts and retains exceptional professionals. We foster a collaborative culture that integrates innovative and diverse perspectives to ensure clients benefit from our best thinking.
Our Unique Position
Glenmede was built to be a sustainable organization with both the scale to provide sophisticated expertise and the client focus to deliver customized services and solutions–a unique position in our industry.
Creating a sustainable and independent wealth and investment management firm is not easy. Small, independent firms are client-centric and responsive, but often lack the solid infrastructure, global perspective and breadth of experience that large, multinational firms offer. Conversely, large global firms have the balance sheet strength to support infrastructure improvements and offer a wide array of services, but they tend to be publicly traded and, as such, must manage to analyst and shareholder demands, making stability and client focus a challenge.
Glenmede provides the best of both–the deep resources of a large firm and the client focus and responsiveness of an independently owned boutique.
