First Eagle Investment Management is an independent, closely-held firm with approximately $100 billion, as of June 30, 2015, in assets under management. Over its long history, the firm has helped its clients to preserve capital and earn attractive returns through widely varied economic cyclesâ€”a tradition that is central to its mission today. Founded in Europe, the firm moved its headquarters to New York City in 1937, but has always maintained a world-wide frame of reference. We are committed to nurturing an investment-centric culture with a long-term global perspective that reflects our extensive international business experience. We view ourselves as a firm of investors, not of asset-gatherers, and in the aggregate, the Arnhold family and key employees are the largest fee-paying investors across First Eagleâ€™s strategies. Our interests are closely aligned with those of our clients, and we measure success by the same standard: consistently strong long-term performance. First Eagle strives at all times to preserve the high standards that we have maintained over our 200-year history: a record of unquestioned integrity, a work environment that fosters excellence and dedication, and the earned respect of our clients and our peers.
