About us

Founded in 1978, Renaissance Investment Management is an SEC-registered investment advisor based in the Greater Cincinnati, Ohio area. The firm serves both institutional and high net worth clients and offers a variety of investment management strategies based upon a foundation of intensive research and disciplined, process-oriented decision making. The firm serves clients both directly and through financial intermediaries.

Renaissance’s management team shares ownership of the firm with Affiliated Managers Group (AMG), a publicly traded company, in a unique partnership structure. This structure benefits our clients by allowing our focused, independent, and entrepreneurial team of investment professionals to take advantage of economies of scale in distribution and compliance/legal support available from a larger organization. This allows our investment team to do what they do best: manage money.
