Since Wally Weitz established Weitz Investment Management in 1983, the firm’s philosophy and core values have remained consistent. Simply put, we focus exclusively on asset management and provide clients with top-quality, personalized service. Over the last three decades, Weitz has built a successful business with a widely respected reputation and a culture of shared success.
As a boutique, employee-owned firm, our independence allows us the flexibility to think and act differently. Clients trust us to deliver differentiated outcomes versus broad market indices. Through our disciplined application of active value investing, we have provided solid long-term, risk-adjusted returns for investors. Review the Weitz Funds’ performance.
At Weitz, we believe that client goals and business goals should align. Team members at Weitz invest in the strategies we manage, so our own capital and our clients' capital experience the same risks and returns. We believe aligning our financial futures is a powerful expression of our commitment to shared success.
The investment management industry has changed significantly over our firm's history, but our founding principles have remained consistent. We take a long-term perspective and strive to build long-term relationships based on transparency and trust. We have maintained the stability of our organizational structure, people and approach to investing. Our investment offerings have expanded over time but always with consideration to the needs of clients and our own capabilities.
