our people
MULTI-FUNCTIONAL TEAM LEVERAGES DECADES OF EXPERIENCE THROUGH A DISCIPLINED PROCESS
Nicholas Investment Partners is a specialist in dynamic, growing small- and mid-cap companies, researching both a company’s stock and its bonds. We believe investing in both equities and convertible bonds is a competitive advantage as it requires an understanding of the catalysts for accelerating revenue and earnings growth, and also the company’s capital structure, its ability to finance its future growth. With a forward-looking growth investment philosophy and one integrated investment team, we pursue promising growth companies that we forecast will appreciate significantly over time.
