Since our founding in 1969, we have nurtured a culture defined by its focus on long-term investment performance, client objectives, experience, teamwork, and professional integrity.
FOCUS ON PERFORMANCE
We are singularly focused on providing superior investment returns for our clients. Our focus on the consistency of our investment processes has resulted in favorable long-term performance across our investment capabilities.
Through our disciplined, research-intensive approach, we examine company and industry prospects over the intermediate and long term, working to understand and anticipate how industries and businesses will change over time. While company fundamentals, macroeconomic conditions, and market risk tolerance may cause variability in the way markets price securities in the short term, we assess if and how they affect our investment theses and company long-term value.
We have cultivated long-standing client relationships by keeping the best interests of our clients in focus. We value the quality and depth of our relationships.
Integrity and dedication to our fiduciary responsibility are cornerstones of our organization.
EXPERIENCE AND TEAMWORK
Our teams are stable and cohesive, with low turnover and long tenure at Jennison. Our performance-driven investment culture demands intellectual rigor; values experience, intelligence, diligence, and dedication; and rewards mutual respect, collaboration, and performance.
MEETING CLIENT NEEDS
Longstanding client relationships are a hallmark of our firm and are built on a foundation of partnership, trust and investment performance.
We work tirelessly to earn those relationships by:
Understanding fully the investment objectives of our clients
Striving to deliver the portfolio characteristics and investment outcomes clients desire
Focusing on long-term outperformance over multiple market cycles
Jennison provides transparency and access to our seasoned investment teams as well as to our teams of relationship managers, portfolio specialists and client service specialists in order to ensure high-touch, high-quality and timely support for all our clients.
