GMO, founded in 1977, is a privately held global investment management firm servicing clients in the corporate, public, endowment, and foundation marketplaces. As of December 31, 2012, we managed $106 billion* in client assets using a blend of traditional judgments with innovative quantitative methods to find undervalued securities and markets. Our success in consistently providing value added performance across a broad range of asset classes is founded on several key factors that include: discipline, value orientation, investment research, and constant innovation (see GMO Qualities below). Our broad-based value added over benchmarks has led many of our clients to request that we allocate assets and advise them on a global scale
