Select Equity Group manages over $20 billion across long-only and long/short equity strategies that share a fundamental investment philosophy and centralized research effort. The Firm was founded on the premise that rigorous, independent research and disciplined investing will generate superior returns for our clients. Our investment team of over 40 professionals includes a 12-person field research division composed of former journalists and sourcing specialists.
We seek to identify the highest quality businesses that the public markets have to offer – those with strong, predictable growth, high returns on invested capital and well-established barriers to competition. We are not interested in owning most businesses at any price. We make minimal use of Wall Street research, and we do not actively share our insights with peers. Our independent process and focus on a narrow subset of businesses has delivered portfolios that we believe are meaningfully different than those of our peers.
The Firm is employee owned and has been located at 380 Lafayette Street in lower Manhattan since the early 1990s.
