Key provides investment management services to a wide variety of companies, including recent services provided to clients in the following sectors:

  • Corporate and Union Pension Plans
  • Endowments and Foundations
  • Various Public Funds

A portfolio that includes a mix of fixed income and equities investments, a balanced fund is geared toward investors who are looking for a mixture of safety, income and modest capital appreciation. Typically, this approach is ideal for those with total return objectives.

Known for our high-touch client communication approach, our portfolio managers for structured cash relationships seek to realize three primary investment objectives: safety of principal; liquidity; and competitive returns. To achieve liquidity, we typically hold a significant amount of very liquid securities with deep secondary markets.

When we have determined the optimal sectors in which to invest, we then determine the appropriate maturities and credit qualities in which to invest the portfolio. We also invest at points along the yield curve that are expected to generate higher returns, and use carefully researched projections to focus on the most advantageous opportunities.
