Associate Portfolio Manager/Analyst
Campbell Newman (CN) is a boutique investment management firm serving institutional and high net worth clients nationally. Founded in 1977, the firm’s culture is built on five core values – client focused, stewardship, transparency, integrity and teamwork. CN currently offers two products – Large Cap Dividend Growth and Small Cap Growth. Both strategies feature high-quality biased, high conviction portfolios that utilize the same bottom-up driven research process. They are differentiated by their investment philosophies that translate into the screening criteria used to define their research universes, the indices to which their investment performance is benchmarked and the characteristics of the portfolios.
CN builds portfolios through bottom-up stock selection using a team-based, flat decision-making structure. The investment team currently consists of three time-tested portfolio managers/analysts that have worked together at CN for over 15 years. The Campbell Newman competitive advantage is the team’s “judgment backed by experience”: Reg FD leveled the playing field so that everyone gets the same information at the same time. It is how the information is processed and used to make decisions that makes the difference between success and failure. Accordingly, the investment team at Campbell Newman is distinguished by its independent thought, flat decision-making style and decades of experience in the research and decision-making process.
