Weitz Investment Management: Brad Hinton & Wally Weitz

May 01, 2020 12:38PM ● By T S

As an employee-owned investment management firm, the team at Weitz Investment Management believes in putting their money where their mouth is. “All of our investment team members invest in the strategies we manage, so our own capital and our clients' capital experience the same risks and returns,” says Wally Weitz, founder and co-chief investment officer. “We believe aligning our financial futures is a powerful expression of our commitment to shared success.”

Weitz Investment Management offers high-conviction, actively managed portfolios. “We view the emotional highs and lows of the market as opportunities, and as value investors, we’re not afraid to go against the crowd,” says Weitz. “Staying true to our guiding principles does not mean that we rigidly follow a formula. Based on decades of experience, our process is time-tested and flexible, allowing us to capitalize on different opportunities as they present themselves, treating every opportunity as unique.”

“Our investment philosophy does not change with market cycles,” says Brad Hinton, co-chief investment officer. “It is grounded in the intrinsic notion that human behavior and stock prices will always be more volatile than actual changes in fundamental business values. Emotions tend to determine stock prices in the short run, and our job is to take advantage of the irrational price changes that occur.” 

“Flexibility, common sense, conviction and independent thinking are the core attributes we rely on to help us be successful investors,” says Hinton. These values, coupled with employees’ dedication, help ensure the company’s success.
