We are value investors—business analysts with a long-term time horizon focused on purchasing publicly traded companies that are competitively entrenched at significant discounts to intrinsic worth. Performance is our mission. We believe performance is best achieved through disciplined commitment to our long-term investment philosophy and the highest set of core values. Our goal is to compound capital at real rates of return significantly in excess of inflation over our five year time horizon. Believing that as owners and operators of the firm, our capital should be invested alongside our client partners, Vulcan Value Partners is the exclusive investment vehicle for all of our employees’ public equity investments.
The inspiration for our name comes from Vulcan, the Roman god of fire. Embracing the qualities of persistence, determination, endurance, and above all discipline, Vulcan was a worker god who harnessed the power of fire and used that power over time to refine raw ore into precious metal.
