Our History



SNW Asset Management (“SNW”), which was acquired by OFI Global* in 2017, began in 2002 as a subsidiary of Seattle-Northwest Securities Corporation (founded in 1970), specializing in U.S. dollar-denominated taxable and tax-exempt fixed income investment management. We have grown to approximately $2.7 billion in assets under management and serve more than 1,800 separate accounts on an actively managed basis. Our clients include Registered Investment Advisors, high net worth individual investors, corporations, trusts, government entities, financial institutions and non-profit organizations.

*OFI Global Institutional, Inc. is a subsidiary of OppenheimerFunds, Inc.


Our Mission



We exist because investors deserve a fixed income portfolio that is built, managed and serviced with their best interests in mind.  We achieve this by acting as disciplined and responsive fiduciaries to our clients and by being ethical owners of an innovative business.

 SNW adds value to clients’ fixed income portfolios by doing thorough, ongoing credit analysis on each security within our clients’ portfolios, while also actively managing the interest rate and sector risk inherent in fixed income investing.
