  • Thornburg Investment Management History
    September 2014 [Our Firm, Garrett Thornburg , How We Invest]
    From his roots in a Minnesota farming town of 1,700, Garrett Thornburg began to show his entrepreneurial habits at a young age. He attended Harvard Business School and then founded Thornburg Investment Management in 1982 with an innovative idea he’d had as a partner at a major Wall Street firm. Our first bond mutual fund, the Limited Term Municipal Fund, emerged from that concept. Brian McMahon, now the firm’s Chief Investment Officer, joined forces with Garrett in Santa Fe in 1984. And after a few Thornburg partners had managed equities internally for years, a gentleman named Bill Fries was hired, marking the launch of Thornburg's first equity strategy in 1995. From 1982 through today, every new Thornburg strategy has been a natural, organic extension of our existing investment capabilities. All the rest, as they say, is history.
