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

The Ford Foundation supports visionary leaders and organizations on the frontlines of social change worldwide. We believe all people should have the opportunity to reach their full potential, contribute to society, and have voice in the decisions that affect them. We believe the best way to achieve these goals is to encourage initiatives by those living and working closest to where problems are located; to promote collaboration among the nonprofit, government and business sectors; and to ensure participation by men and women from diverse communities and all levels of society. In our experience, such activities help build common understanding, enhance excellence, enable people to improve their lives and reinforce their commitment to society. We work mainly by making grants or loans that build knowledge and strengthen organizations and networks. Since our financial resources are modest compared with societal needs, we focus on key problem areas and program strategies. Created with gifts and bequests by Edsel and Henry Ford, the foundation is an independent, nonprofit, nongovernmental organization, with its own board, and is entirely separate from the Ford Motor Company. The trustees of the foundation set policy and delegate authority to the president and senior staff for the foundation’s grant making and operations. Program officers in the United States, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Latin America explore opportunities to pursue the foundation’s goals, formulate strategies and recommend proposals for funding.
