Piedmont Investment Advisors, LLC is a professional money management firm specializing in core equity and fixed income management. The firm was established in August 2000 and is based in Durham, North Carolina. We currently manage approximately $3.1 billion in assets as of June 30, 2013.
We chose the name Piedmont as a reference to our position on the investment landscape as well as to reflect our geographic location. We envision an investment landscape that parallels that of the southeastern U.S. with the high peaks and low valleys of undiversified style portfolios representing the mountains and the overly diversified portfolios of closet indexers representing the coastal plain. In this investment landscape, the Piedmont represents the desirable middle ground of gently rolling hills of reasonable returns and softly shaded valleys of acceptable risks. It is neither too hot nor too cold. The terrain does not rise too high or fall too low. It is the region we have chosen to reside in because we believe that it offers the best of both worlds.
