Piedmont Investment Advisors, Inc. is an institutional money management firm specializing in equity and fixed income management. We are a minority and women-owned business enterprise based in Durham, North Carolina. 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 with a focus on achieving investment success for our clients. Our investment philosophy combines multiple disciplines that seek 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 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.
