Welcome To Sasco Capital

Sasco Capital is an employee-owned asset management boutique with a long-standing history. Established in 1985, the firm has successfully managed a contrarian value strategy for some of the country’s largest public pension funds, multi-national corporations, foundations, endowments and high-net-worth individuals.

The firm employs a unique, time-tested approach to value investing, resulting in high active share portfolios that have produced long-term excess returns and significant capital appreciation for its clients. We invite you to learn more about our team, our history and our strategy.

  • Rich History

    Sasco Capital’s founding portfolio managers have worked together since 1981, when they were the first team hired to manage IBM’s burgeoning in-house equity pension fund. Forty years later, they are guided by the same values, philosophy and process.

  • Unique Approach

    Unlike many value managers, who generate investment ideas by screening current valuation metrics, we start by finding underperforming, undervalued companies with the potential to be turned around, transformed or restructured. Find out about our approach to uncovering “hidden jewels”.

  • Complementary Strategy

    We manage a contrarian value strategy in the Small, Smid and Mid Cap market segments. Our unique approach to idea generation and portfolio construction results in high active share portfolios that are a differentiated complement to passive, growth and other value strategies.

“As contrarian value investors, our process starts by identifying potential transformations, not just low valuations.”
