Our Endowment Heritage

Verdis Investment Management was founded in 2004 to serve the needs of small and mid-size institutions by helping them access and implement alternative investment strategies. The firm began managing real assets investments in 2007 and today specializes in constructing investment portfolios in real estate and energy and resources.


At the core of Verdis Investment Management is our endowment heritage. At the Firm’s founding, chief investment officers from well-known university endowments and foundations provided insight, recommendations and references for building a best-in-class investment office. These chief investment officers are equity holders in the Firm and serve as an extension of the Verdis network to provide perspective and insight into the Firm’s investment strategies. Their early influence and insight helped shaped our beliefs, investment strategies, philosophies and processes.


Members of the Verdis Investment Management team bring together previous experience as investors, decision-makers and administrators at real estate developers, private equity firms, endowments, and other financial institutions. We take pride in our collaborative, team-oriented environment. Our culture fosters a supportive atmosphere where ideas are respected, candor is encouraged and assumptions are challenged.
