Firm History

Columbus Macro, LLC is an independent, globally-engaged boutique asset manager. We actively manage assets in the global capital markets on behalf of institutions, financial advisors and families of substantial wealth. Our capabilities include discretionary asset allocation, portfolio strategist overlay, and outsourced Chief Investment Officer (OCIO) services as well as portfolio consulting.

Columbus Macro, LLC was formed in 2017 when our firm's founding members left their asset management leadership roles at Cetera, one of the nation's largest independent broker dealers, to create a boutique asset manager. Our core team has worked closely since 2005, and the relationship between our firm's CEO Craig Columbus and President Lon Gerber dates back more than 30 years to their time together in graduate school.

Columbus Macro is a globally-focused boutique investment management firm with locations in suburban Pittsburgh and Scottsdale. We have no parent or subsidiary affiliations, nor do we offer proprietary products but rather rely solely on a separately managed account (SMA) structure.

We partner with financial advisors and institutions seeking to leverage our investment strategies as a model provider across a variety of industry platforms. Our investment process combines top-down macro analysis with bottom-up fundamental stock selection. We specialize in dividend income and macro allocation strategies.
