Where we came from

Founded in 1975 by Sam Stewart, Wasatch started with growth investing in small companies. Sam developed a fundamental, bottom-up research method that focuses on long-term growth and finding market inefficiencies. This type of investing in small, harder to find, and lesser-known companies requires a focused, rigorous research process and close collaboration among our team. Over time, Wasatch added more research professionals and began applying the same successful process to other funds. In addition to uncovering small growth companies, our process now also includes micro cap, value, international, and mid-large cap funds.

What we do

We invest using an incredibly thorough research process that is enhanced by collaboration practices that encourage sharing information among team members. We are committed to our shareholders by remaining disciplined. We pursue our investment strategies as they are defined, and we have the courage to close our funds when assets hit certain levels—even if it means missing out on additional investors in Wasatch Funds.
