Select Equity Group was founded on the premise that rigorous, independent research and disciplined, long-term investing will generate superior returns for our clients.

The Firm manages over $35 billion in assets across long-only and long/short equity strategies that invest in high-quality companies across geographies and market capitalizations. Our global client base includes endowments, foundations, public and corporate pensions, private banks, family offices and high-net-worth individuals.

The Firm exists to serve its clients.


Our investment philosophy is grounded in three tenets:


We are focused on owning only what we believe are the world’s best businesses.


We seek to understand our businesses better than our peers through independent, granular and continuous research.


We wait patiently for the market to present opportunities to deploy capital at attractive discounts to intrinsic values.


We manage both long-only and long/short equity portfolios that differ in terms of market cap focus, geographic exposure and concentration but share our core investment philosophy.

We have been investing on behalf of our clients in long-only equity portfolios since 1991, long/short equity portfolios since 1998, dedicated international equity portfolios since 2011, global equity portfolios since 2013 and private equity portfolios since 2015.
