Career History
Founder
1988 - Current

ESL Investments' (\"ESL\") overall investment philosophy is value-driven and based on disciplined, extensive fundamental analysis and field research. ESL generally looks for good companies, with strong fundamentals, selling at attractive prices. The firm primarily invests with a bottom-up perspective, focusing on the individual company business model rather than making a sector or industry bet. ESL generally does not invest with a macroeconomic focus or in industries they don't believe they fully understand. Most investments have historically been made through US financial markets in US-based companies. With their long-term capital and investment perspective, ESL has less of a focus on short-term market-driven price performance and has the ability to support strategies that increase the value of company shares over a longer time horizon. This approach allows them to pursue those companies that may temporarily fall out-of-favor with the broad investor universe but where long-term value can be realized. ESL's investment strategy is not intended to generate absolute returns, but is instead intended to exceed the performance of the broad US stock market over a minimum five-year horizon.
