About Us

Piedmont Investment Advisors is an institutional money management firm specializing in equity and fixed income management with approximately $4.8 billion in assets under management (as of September 30, 2018). Established in August 2000 and based in Durham, North Carolina, our firm is a minority and women-owned business enterprise.

At Piedmont, our clients come first. We believe that our success is dependent on investing ourselves in establishing lasting client relationships. We work to build trust by offering investment products that strike an appropriate balance between risk and return and aim to generate attractive results consistently. Our investment philosophy combines multiple disciplines that seeks to outperform client benchmarks on a risk-managed basis. We don’t rely on just a single source of insights, but rather, our process extracts value from the combination of three investment disciplines: quant, fundamental, and macro. Accordingly, Piedmont employs a collaborative investment process, based on our unified investment platform, where all investment professionals come together in multiple forums to develop a firm-wide macro strategy and to discuss quantitative and fundamental research insights that can be applied across all products.
