OppenheimerFunds, Inc., was formed in 1960 as an affiliate of Oppenheimer & Co., a securities brokerage now known as CIBC Oppenheimer Corp. OppenheimerFunds, then known as Oppenheimer Management Corp., was the investment advisor to one mutual fund, the Oppenheimer Fund, which was first offered to the public in 1959. In the 40-plus years since it was founded, OppenheimerFunds has grown into one of the largest and most respected mutual fund companies in the US. As of March 31, 2001, OppenheimerFunds and its subsidiaries manage more than 60 mutual funds with total assets in excess of $120 billion, held in more than five million shareholder accounts.
OppenheimerFunds offers a diverse product line that includes mutual funds, variable annuities, and qualified retirement plans. Oppenheimer also provides award-winning shareholder services to Oppenheimer fund investors and their financial advisors through its Denver-based division, OppenheimerFunds Services.
Oppenheimer's stated philosophy is that investment success results from a commitment to several basic principles. Together, these six principles constitute OppenheimerFunds' "The Right Way To Invest":
1: Insist on excellent, long-term performance.
2: Do what the firm says it will do.
3: Embrace a disciplined, collaborative approach to investing.
More than 40 years of successful mutual fund investing has taught the company these principles. They serve as the company's pledge - one that investors can depend on. For Oppenheimer, this pledge defines the right way to invest.
