Founded in 1974, Friess Associates manages the Brandywine Funds family of mutual funds and a wide range of separate portfolios. Instead of aiming to be all things to all investors, growth-equity investing is our sole focus. All of our portfolios follow the same time-tested investment strategy, which emphasizes each company’s ability to influence its share-price performance through earnings growth. We rely on exhaustive, company-by-company research to identify companies with promising earnings-growth potential that has yet to be recognized by the broader investment community. Friess Associates is a research-driven firm. We dedicate our resources to growing the assets entrusted to us rather than to aggressively gathering assets through marketing. We maintain a consistent fee policy that treats the smallest Brandywine shareholder and our biggest institutional client alike. We’re also chefs who eat our own cooking, with Friess Associates employees representing the largest single shareholder group in the Brandywine Funds
