Karpus Investment Management. Reduce risk. Grow wealth.

Karpus Investment Management is a fee-based, independent Registered Investment Advisory firm providing balanced and specialty management including fixed-income (taxable and tax-advantaged), cash, domestic equity and international equity management. We have consistently ranked in the top 1% to 15% of our peers in conservative equity, bond and balanced management for seven-year and longer time periods as of December 31, 2015. It is important to judge a manager’s success over full market cycles, recent market cycles have exceeded seven years in length. Any manager may outperform the market for shorter periods of time, but full market cycles separate “luck” from “expertise.” We structure an extensively diversified portfolio that will be designed according to your investment goals and risk tolerance.

Who We Serve

Individuals & Families

Individuals & Families

It’s all about you. We gain a comprehensive understanding of our client’s entire financial being so that we can manage your portfolio based on income needs, risk tolerance, tax considerations, and wealth transfer strategies.

Family Office

Family Office

At Karpus, we understand the importance and complexities of single-family office (SFO) and multi family office (MFO) investments.



The key issues trustees and financial officers face in a non-profit have a special complexity. An ethical and legal line must be walked to ensure the preservation of capital needed to fulfill the organization’s mission.



When facing board members, shareholders, and employees, there is little that requires more attention than institutional investment.
