OppenheimerFunds – Why Work For Us?

Since the original Oppenheimer fund was first offered to the public in 1959, OppenheimerFunds, Inc. (OFI) has grown into one of the largest and most reputable investment management firms in the country. Today, a subsidiary of Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual), OFI and its subsidiaries offer a broad array of products and services to individuals, institutional investors and corporations worldwide. OFI provides advisory services to the Oppenheimer mutual funds and OFI Global Asset Management provides services to institutional clients.

For more than 50 years, OFI has embraced an investment culture that has produced results, is sustainable, and reflects its commitment to being effective stewards of capital. A high conviction asset manager, OFI has a history of providing innovative investment strategies to its investors. Four core beliefs lie at the heart of the OFI investment culture: active management can deliver better outcomes, independent investment boutiques lead to better ideas, a global perspective is critical, and knowing the difference between risk & risky.

OFI's investment professionals are a collection of distinct, yet collaborative, teams built to enable a free exchange of ideas and to uncover opportunity wherever it lies; even where others see a disparate set of facts, events or trends. OFI is redefining what the world can expect from an asset manager, and stands united on its mission to turn its unconventional wisdom into value for investors.

The Right Way to Change Perspectives

Have you ever had an experience that changed the way you see things? Perhaps, as a result, that experience inspired you to influence positive change in your life or someone else's.

At OppenheimerFunds, we believe that giving back should include more than just writing a check. We believe in taking an active, hands-on approach to all that we do so we can better serve our investors, our communities and the world at large. The Right Way is our signature philanthropy program. Its goal is to help change peoples' perspectives and encourage them to roll up their sleeves and make a difference.

We are partnering with two exceptional organizations that share our firm's mission, beliefs and core values. Through active experiences, they tackle some of the most pressing global issues and are passionate about changing peoples' perspectives.

MoMath — the Museum of Mathematics — addresses the decline in the number of students who are achieving in math and preparing for careers that rely on mathematics. The museum's dynamic, first-of-its-kind facility provides exhibits and programs that actively engage the public and make math more fun and less intimidating.

Cross Cultural Solutions addresses critical global issues by providing meaningful and sustainable volunteer service to communities abroad. Their global volunteer program creates influential cultural exchanges, delivers real change to communities and increases awareness of global issues.

Logo/Tagline History


The Evolution of Our Iconic Four Hands
The OppenheimerFunds logo has undergone stylistic modifications since we introduced it in 1964, but its essence has remained intact. The four hands serve as an enduring symbol of the strength and reliability that has defined our approach to investing and our partnership with financial advisors, institutions and individual investors.

The four-joined hands symbol dates back to 1752 when Benjamin Franklin used it to designate homes that were protected by his pioneering fire insurance company. Today, our renowned four hands logo has evolved to be multidimensional and transparent, specifically designed to signify strength, transparency and forward thinking, and to reflect the complexity faced by investors of all kinds in an increasingly interconnected world. The symbol embodies our mission to turn our unconventional wisdom into value for investors.

The Right Way to Invest
Accompanying the logo is OppenheimerFunds' tagline, The Right Way to Invest. First introduced in 1997, The Right Way to Invest is more than just an advertising slogan. It expresses the essence of our company’s culture to redefine what the world can expect from an asset manager and seeks to deliver long-term value through high conviction active management.

While our brand has evolved over time, the four core beliefs that lie at the heart of OppenheimerFunds’ investment culture have remained intact. They are: Active Management Delivers Better Outcomes; Independent Investment Boutiques Lead to Better Ideas; A Global Perspective Is Critical and Portfolio Management Is Best Supported by Independent Risk Management Oversight.

The Right Way to Invest also speaks to a steadfast commitment to the firm’s Corporate Values—values that shape our actions, and serve as a constant reminder that our success is measured not only by what we achieve, but how we achieve it.
