Wasatch way

Our History

In 1975, Sam Stewart started Wasatch and put into place a new investment philosophy that was noticeably unique. Headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, the firm patterns its practices of thorough, rock-solid research and collaborative investing after the granite peaks that surround it.

What's in a name

As we began the firm, Sam wanted to build a legacy that would last beyond the firm, so he opted not to brand the firm with his own name. He instead used a local Utah word that fit with our investment objective. “Wasatch” is originally a Ute Indian word roughly meaning “a safe passage through the mountains.” Today, the Wasatch mountain range is part of the Rocky Mountains, and is the prominent mountain range overlooking the Salt Lake valley.
