About Us

Piedmont Investment Advisors, LLC is an institutional money management firm specializing in equity and fixed income management with approximately $5.6 billion in assets under management (as of March 31, 2018). Established in August 2000 and based in Durham, North Carolina, our firm is a minority business enterprise and 100% employee owned. Our “shared effort, shared reward” approach attracts and helps retain a group of entrepreneurial spirits. Their hard work and a commitment to client service has made Piedmont the success it is today.

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.
