Our History

We define ourselves by a legacy of research and investment innovation and excellence.

Founded in 1967, Sandford C. Bernstein started as a private securities firm. Under Bernstein’s vision as an industry icon and contrarian pioneer, the firm grew into one of the largest independent investment managers.

Founded in 1971 when the investment-management department of Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette, Inc., merged with the investment advisory business of Moody’s Investor Service, Inc., with a shared belief that deeper research revealed greater investment value.

In October 2000, Alliance Capital acquired Sandford C. Bernstein, to form AllianceBernstein. This combination created a complementary union of Alliance Capital’s expertise in growth equity, corporate fixed-income investing as well as its mutual fund range and Bernstein’s expertise in value equity, tax-exempt fixed-income management as well as its Private Client Business.

Responsible Investing

As responsible investors, we scrutinize the environmental behaviour of every company we research. Just as important, we turn that same lens on ourselves, evaluating the impact we have on the environment—and how we can become better environmental stewards.

Corporate Responsibility

Responsibility is an active pursuit that unites all parts of our firm—from the way we work and act to our community service and the investment solutions we deliver to our clients.
