We pride ourselves in balancing the feel of a small firm with the scale of a large global organization. Our entrepreneurial culture and flat management structure foster an environment in which good ideas can take flight, no matter where they come from.

Lazard was built on the premise that a multicultural firm can serve a global clientele best. Our professionals around the world infuse the local flavor of their regions into our global network. We are a united collection of individuals who respect each other's differences, and we value our rich diversity. We believe diversity of thought and open debate encourage creative and innovative solutions for our clients.

On-the-ground, global fundamental research is the foundation of our investment approach. Located in the United States, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, our investment professionals collaborate on detailed fundamental analysis integrating knowledge across regions, sectors and asset classes to arrive at unique insights.

We empower our investment teams to make independent investment decisions, and we support them with global research capabilities and a strong operations infrastructure. This model allows our teams to focus on what we do best: invest your capital.

Risk management is integral to our portfolio construction. Our independent global risk management team provide objective monitoring of all our portfolios to ensure our investment teams understand the balance of risk and return and our investment strategies deliver their expected pattern of performance.

ESG considerations, including a company's governance policies and board structure, environmental practices, and labor policies, can affect a security's valuation and financial performance. Therefore, our investment professionals integrate ESG analysis into their research and decision-making processes.
