In addition to Bahl & Gaynor’s extensive institutional experience, we have established relationships with various financial institutions to offer selected strategies in separately managed account, mutual fund and unit investment trust formats.

Our Strategies

Income Growth

Incepted in 2005, the Income Growth strategy was inspired by an unaddressed need among institutional clients to generate income today to fund spending objectives, but grow income and principal over time to expand the mission of the client organization.

Large Cap Quality Growth

As Bahl & Gaynor’s longest-running strategy, Large Cap Quality Growth has been managed since the firm’s inception in 1990. The inspiration for this strategy was drawn from the portfolio management style Bill Bahl and Vere Gaynor applied with founding clients of Bahl & Gaynor in their roles prior to forming the firm.
