About Us

Vulcan Value Partners is an Investment Adviser registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. 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. Vulcan Value Partners was founded in 2007 by C.T. Fitzpatrick. Mr. Fitzpatrick has 34 years experience managing portfolios with proven long-term results. The remainder of the firm’s management team has a combined 128 years of investing, operating, and analytical experience. As an independently owned and operated firm, we believe that our capital should be invested alongside our client partners. That is why Vulcan Value Partners is the exclusive investment vehicle for all of our employees’ public equity investments. Our goal is to compound capital at real rates of return significantly in excess of inflation over our five year time horizon.

Our Name

VVPillustrationThe Vulcan Story:
Vulcan Value Partners. Our original inspiration of our name comes from Roman mythology. Vulcan, the Roman god of fire, was a worker god. With fire and hammer and discipline, he persistently, over time, shaped and refined precious metal from raw ore. Determination, endurance, and above all, discipline. All harnessed to refine the ordinary into the extraordinary. Discipline, harnessed and focused to create value over time.
