WE JUDGE IDEAS
BY THEIR MERIT, NOT THEIR
PEDIGREE

At Weiss, we have an uncompromising commitment to rationality and use a cerebral approach to problem solving. We promote continuous learning and improvement because we believe that by understanding our mistakes, we make progress.

We value integrity, intellectual honesty, creativity, and collaboration. Our culture is more important than any individual and more persistent than any strategy.

WE INNOVATE TO OUTPERFORM

For more than 25 years, Weiss has developed proprietary value-based investment strategies designed to deliver high risk-adjusted returns to our investors. We work collaboratively to solve problems, and to identify undervalued assets through deep fundamental research, statistical analysis and an analytically rigorous approach to decision making.

WE BELIEVE PEOPLE MATTER MOST

Our long-run risk-adjusted returns depend not only on the assets we currently own, or even the strategies we currently understand, but on the quality of our employees. More than anything else, you will likely find that what makes our culture so strong are the people working next to you.

Hear from Weiss team members about our unique culture.

WE ARE INVESTORS WITH VALUES,
NOT JUST VALUE INVESTORS
We Act Ethically. Period.
We Act Ethically. Period.

Our test is simple: if we wouldn’t be proud describing our work to our family, or reading about it in the newspaper, we won’t make that investment. We hold ourselves to rigorous ethical standards in all of our decisions.

Driven
To Teach
Driven To Teach

We typically hire recent graduates and post-graduates who have great raw ability and potential but haven’t developed the relevant skills yet. We put tremendous effort and resources into teaching and training employees today so they can become the stars of tomorrow.

We hire extraordinary people. We build extraordinary teams. We foster a culture of collaboration where we learn from each other, inspire one another, and share in our successes. We achieve far more together than we ever could on our own.

Meritocracy, Not Hierarchy
Meritocracy, Not Hierarchy

We encourage independent thought and criticism of standard operating procedures. Ideas are judged on their merit, not on the title of the person proposing them. If an employee thinks we are making a mistake, it is their job to speak up about what we are doing wrong.

A Culture
Of Ideas
A Culture Of Ideas

If we had simply continued what we started out doing in 1991, we would be closed today. We are constantly reinventing ourselves and finding new opportunities. Our culture focuses on developing, implementing, and monetizing innovative ideas.

We’re proud to be investing on behalf of many universities and foundations who are working on the cure for cancer, among other great causes. It makes me proud to think that our work, and the profits we generate, are supporting these nonprofits.
