Creating Exceptional Value Together
We design custom partnership structures that align with the long-term goals of each of our Affiliates. While partnerships are tailored to meet the specific needs of each firm, in all cases we establish a meaningful equity interest in the Affiliate, with the remaining equity distributed among management principals, incenting further success through ongoing superior investment performance and client service.
We evolve our capabilities and solutions with our Affiliates – in some cases, over generations of management – with a flexible and collaborative approach, to create exceptional value together.
Independence and Ownership Mindset
Since our founding, the following fundamentals have been hallmarks of a partnership with AMG:
- Preserving our partners’ unique entrepreneurial and investment cultures. When Affiliates choose AMG as a partner, they are choosing independence. Our Affiliate partners retain cultural, operational, and investment autonomy. Not only do our partners value their independence, but their clients also recognize that an independent firm’s entrepreneurial and investment-centric culture is instrumental to generating differentiated long-term returns.
- Maintaining long-term alignment and wealth creation opportunity through substantial equity ownership. Key management principals retain significant direct equity ownership in their own firm, enabling them to participate in its long-term success and keeping their interests aligned with clients. For many Affiliates, AMG facilitates incentive alignment and leadership transition across generations of principals, enabling subsequent generations to participate in long-term value creation.
