MainStay Investments

At the core of the MainStay success story is a multi-boutique structure that consists of autonomous institutional asset managers, each of which is highly specialized, with a unique investment focus, process, and philosophy.

We believe our multi-boutique structure and thought leadership give us a competitive advantage, and have helped us deliver long-term results to our clients.

Multi-boutique investments—access to institutional asset managers

With our multi-boutique structure, investors can access independent and highly specialized investment managers through MainStay Funds, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, non-traditional strategies, and separately managed accounts.

Long-term perspective—maintaining a disciplined approach through all market cycles

While MainStay’s investment boutiques are autonomous and independent, they all share a long-term perspective, a focus on quality, and a commitment to excellence.

Thought leadership—helping you make informed investment decisions

We provide investment insights and unique perspectives, as well as wealth-building and wealth-preservation educational tools.
