Founded in 1994, Cascade applies a fundamental, long horizon investment approach across asset classes and geographies.

While Cascade manages the assets of the Trust, which funds the Gates Foundation, neither Cascade nor the Trust play a role in the grantmaking or operations of the foundation. Additionally, the foundation does not control or participate in the Trust’s investment activities. To learn about the foundation’s work, visit the foundation’s website.
