Wasatch Global Investors is 100% employee-owned and 100% focused on active investment management. We are headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah and named for the nearby Wasatch Mountain Range. We bring unparalleled experience—and a global perspective—to micro-, small- and mid-cap investing.
From the very beginning of Wasatch in 1975, our approach has emphasized collaboration and intellectual curiosity—and an unrelenting focus on the pursuit of superior risk-adjusted returns for our clients.
Our focus is on achieving superior risk-adjusted returns for our clients—and not on maximizing our own assets under management, as we have repeatedly demonstrated through our willingness to close successful strategies to protect existing clients. We further ensure our interests are aligned with our clients by investing alongside them.
Even the way we compensate investment professionals is designed to encourage the long-term results we believe are most important to our clients—and most indicative of our success.
Many Wasatch employees hold an ownership stake in the firm—and there is no majority shareholder. Our independence keeps us focused on our primary goal of delivering long-term results for our clients. It’s also central to who we are and how we operate.
