Our origin story, in many ways, begins with our name. ’PineBridge’ was chosen to reflect the firm’s roots, which developed as the former asset management division of AIG, headquartered on ’Pine’ Street in New York’s financial district, and its aspirations for the future: ’Bridge’ was the name of the project to transition AIG’s money management business into an independent entity. Employees embraced the name and the idea it conveyed of a bridge to the future with roots in the past.
Independent since 2010, the firm continues to draw from its decades of investment experience across asset classes, a network of global offices with talented and highly rated investment teams, and a world-class infrastructure.
Today, our clients include pension plans, insurance companies, official institutions, private banks, advisors and intermediaries, supported by offices and staff in 21 locations2. Our footprint enables us to deliver the firm’s full capabilities to investors at a local level, working closely to understand investor objectives, meet their needs, and help to solve their challenges.
PineBridge is majority-owned by a subsidiary of Pacific Century Group (PCG), an Asia-based private investment group. PineBridge employees have a meaningful share in the success of PineBridge through equity ownership and other rights to profits of the business. Asset management is our only line of business, ensuring that our interests are fully aligned with those of our clients.
