The PFM Group Adds Bay Area Native Investment Professional to San Francisco Office

Philadelphia, PA - The PFM Group announced today the addition of investment professional, Izac Chyou. Chyou, a Bay Area native, joins the firm’s San Francisco location as a Senior Managing Consultant and will provide general financial advisory and relationship management services to asset management clients in Northern California and parts of the Pacific Northwest. PFM Asset Management LLC (PFMAM) provides investment management and consulting services to state and local governments, non-profits, and other community-based institutions. Its San Francisco practice focuses primarily on serving the needs of state and local governmental entities and their authorities. “Having spent his life here, Izac has benefited from and therefore understands the services our clients provide,” said PFM Asset Management Director Monique S. Spyke. “Additionally, his private sector advisory experience looking at the broader investment universe provides a perspective important in the government space, particularly as governments work to borrow great ideas from the private sector.”  

Chyou has over ten years’ experience working with sovereign wealth, endowment and foundation clients. Most recently, he worked at Wellington Management Company in both its Boston headquarters and San Francisco office, serving some of the company’s largest and most sophisticated institutions, domestically and abroad. Chyou, who lives in Fremont, CA, is bilingual (English and Spanish) and brings a unique cultural perspective to his work as the son of Chinese and Mexican immigrant parents.“Our clients serve diverse communities. We have a great diversity and inclusion initiative at PFM. We and our clients appreciate someone who is able to bring bilingual capability and diversity of experience,” Spyke said.“I hope to potentially bring a different frame of reference in line with PFM’s values and beliefs,” Chyou said. “I understand the geography and nature of the cities in northern California and the culture of the people here.”Chyou and his wife are expecting their first baby soon. In his free time, he enjoys staying active with Brazilian jiu-jitsu, hiking, and spending time with friends and family. He also enjoys cooking, snowboarding, and being outdoors.

Mr. Chyou graduated from the University of California Davis with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics.
