GW&K was founded in 1974 to offer innovative investment solutions consistent with our clients' objectives. We first achieved recognition for our municipal bond portfolio management and it remains one of the cornerstones of our investment offerings. Over the last four decades we have grown into a nationally respected manager for a diverse client base. In addition to our municipal bond strategies, we are also known for our small cap and small/mid cap equity and core fixed income investment capabilities. One of the keys to our success is our accessibility to our clients and our commitment to helping them grow their investments over the long term through our thoughtfully conceived and managed strategies.
In 2008 we partnered with Affiliated Managers Group (AMG). This partnership allows us to maintain our client oriented culture and our focus on delivering highly personalized investment management services. We continue to operate independently and expand our business to benefit our clients. Our philosophy remains the same: rigorous research, disciplined management, an eye for unexpected opportunity, and a client-driven culture.
