Glenmede Investment Management Investing Philosophy
Glenmede Investment’s strategies span the investment continuum, covering equites, fixed income, liquid alternatives and what it calls “impact.” Equity strategies include large, mid and small cap securities using growth, value and blended styles. Fixed income strategies subdivide into taxable and tax-exempt categories, with varying duration approaches. Liquid alternatives include long/short strategies, secured options strategies and multi-strategies. Finally, impact strategies include models that invest in environmental equity, socially responsible equity, responsible ESG equity and women in leadership equity.
The firm primarily invests in U.S. companies, though it did launch a quantitatively oriented international strategy in 2014. It uses technical, fundamental and charting methods of analysis to evaluate investments, and it may utilize long- and short-term trading, short sales and options trading.
