We Are Small Enough
To Think Big
Headquartered in Chicago, PPM embraces the Midwestern mentality of hard work, straight talk and humility. Our success is supported by a team-based culture that encourages debate and collaboration in pursuing new investment opportunities.
As part of one of the world’s leading financial organizations, we have the expertise, reach and resources to provide clients with a diverse set of investment solutions. However, like a smaller shop, we remain nimble and responsive to the opportunities that our teams discover together.
CLIENTS ARE AT THE CORE OF EVERYTHING WE DO
LONG-TENURED TEAMS AND PROVEN PROCESSES
INVESTMENT-LED ORGANIZATION FOCUSED ON PERFORMANCE
ESTABLISHED AS AN INSTITUTIONAL SOLUTIONS PROVIDER
NETWORK AND ACCESS TO ONE OF THE WORLD'S LEADING FINANCIAL SERVICES ORGANIZATIONS
Our history can be traced back more than 170 years to our UK Parent company’s inception in 1848. Our UK Parent and its affiliates have become one of the world’s leading financial services organizations serving over 26 million insurance customers with approximately $876.68 billion of assets under management.3
PPM was founded in 1990 to manage investments for our affiliates. Our first accounts were insurance mandates, which remain some of our largest accounts today. We place deep emphasis on security-level fundamentals and risk measurement—core disciplines that have remained embedded in our approach as we’ve grown.
OUR CONNECTION TO PRUDENCE
The symbol of Prudence has been the face of our UK parent since 1848 when it was part of the first company seal. Prudence dates back further to the writings of classical antiquity, when she was recognized as Prudentia: one of the four cardinal virtues. Today, she is the face of PPM — representing our relentless pursuit of wisdom, knowledge, and insight. She is depicted holding a serpent for wisdom, a mirror for self-revelation, and an arrow for purpose and direction.
