Neuberger Berman’s commitment to investment management has deep roots. In 1939, renowned investor Roy Neuberger founded the firm to manage money for individuals and families. The firm thrived and grew, earning a reputation for excellent performance and integrity. In 1950, Neuberger Berman became one of the first firms to offer a no-load mutual fund to individual investors, and that mutual fund family grew alongside the private client business. In 1971, the firm launched a portfolio for institutions, marking its formal entry into the institutional investment management business. Today, we continue to serve a broad range of investors across traditional equity, fixed income and alternative asset classes, while offering portfolio advice and wealth planning services.
We have operated successfully through many investment and economic cycles, which has helped strengthen and define us as a firm. Today, we are best described as a collective of independent, entrepreneurial-minded investment teams and support groups who are motivated to do well for clients in their respective areas of expertise. This sense of teamwork, accountability and client-focus is shared across our entire organization. We hire and retain employees based on merit, attracting talent with the dedication and creativity needed to foster diverse perspectives and a passion for investing.

Philanthropy and public service are an important part of who we are as a firm.
