Company Description

Palo Alto Investors, LLC (PAI) is a leading private investment firm. We make long-term investments for high-net-worth and institutional investors based on original, deep, fundamental research. We don’t rent stocks. We own them. With approximately $900 million in assets under management, we offer a diversified micro cap fund and healthcare sector funds. Significant partner ownership in all of our Funds serves to align our financial interests with the financial interests of our clients. At PAI our mission is to deliver superior returns to our clients by investing for the long term. At the core of our investment philosophy lies the belief that intensive, original research is required to discover and evaluate inefficiently priced equities. We generally focus our investments in micro cap and small cap U.S. equities, which are not closely followed by Wall Street sell-side research firms. We target overlooked, misunderstood and undervalued segments of the equity markets, such as healthcare, energy and technology that have significant potential for appreciation. Our experienced research team has extensive industry experience in the sectors they cover. They utilize a disciplined, bottom-up approach to identify promising investments, and the firm’s investment policies ensure liquidity horizons that are sufficient to take advantage of new opportunities. PAI is committed to providing exemplary client service, maintaining the highest level of ethics, operational excellence and professionalism. PAI is independently owned, and has been registered with the SEC since its inception in 1989
