Early life

After working at the Boston Company, then one of the largest investment managers, Lewis in 1975 co-founded and served as co-chief executive and then chief executive of Cambridge Associates LLC,[2] an investment advisor to American research universities and colleges representing over three-quarters of U.S. higher education endowment assets, other non-profits, international organizations, and families.[2] Lewis was a co-inventor of what became known as the American University style of institutional investing,[3][4] which gave American university endowment funds the highest investment returns in the world among institutional investors,[5] and which became widely emulated. Cambridge Associates also became known for its claim to avoid the conflicts of interest so endemic to Wall St.,[6] conflicts that became especially apparent during the Crash of 2008. Cambridge Associates has claimed that its mode of “conflict free” services represents an important innovation in American finance.[2]
