About us
Independent. Collaborative. Open architecture.
BY THE NUMBERS
OUR MISSION

SpringTide exists to provide efficient, collaborative investment solutions to family offices, advisors, foundations and trust banks. 

Our goal is to complement our clients' existing resources, strengthen their underlying client relationships and help them scale by delivering differentiated research through an accountable and collaborative open-architecture platform.

OUR SERVICES
OUTSOURCED RESEARCH & OCIO
Our clients leverage us for some of the more labor-intensive aspects of the investment process, allowing them to focus their time and energy on the areas of their business or allocation process where they are most effective.
ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENT CONSULTING
For clients looking for more tailored portfolio solutions either for large single accounts or globally across multiple accounts, we collaboratively design and create single or multi-asset strategies optimized for their unique needs.
PRACTICE SUPPORT
We partner with clients small and large to lay or refine the foundations of an effective investment process. From developing a global IPS, structuring investment committees and benchmarking roadmaps to ensure fair and accurate reporting, we help our clients plan for lasting success.
 
OUR TEAM
Independent. By design.

The SpringTide Investment Team has more than 30 years of investment experience, including 14 years as an asset allocation and manager research team.  We have conducted over 7,000 manager meetings and performed hundreds of site visits with both public and private asset managers. As a team, we have deployed more than $1 billion across private real estate, private equity, venture capital, private credit and other alternative investments.
