About Jackson Square Partners
Founded in 2014, we are an independent investment manager, specializing in long-only, global growth-oriented equity investing. Our approach has been honed by a team who has worked together for more than two decades, resulting in a unifying investment philosophy of concentrated, long-term investing focused on intrinsic business value growth.
Our strategies include Global Growth, Large-Cap Growth, SMID-Cap Growth, and Small-Cap Opportunities.
The name of our firm acknowledges San Francisco’s oldest commercial center as a key gateway for sailors, prospectors and entrepreneurs who sought their fortune here during the Gold Rush in the mid-1800s. The charming Jackson Square neighborhood also auspiciously survived the great earthquake and fire of 1906 that destroyed much of the city.
Opportunity and resilience are the dual attributes we actively seek in the holdings for our investment portfolios.
From our office in San Francisco, we engage in a worldview that envisions equity investing as a gateway to global opportunities to construct differentiated portfolios.
The culture of our firm is characterized by a collaborative environment in which every individual has a voice that is valued by all. The free sharing of ideas is the norm and open constructive debate is expected. With our flat structure, team-based portfolio management is encouraged and rewarded.
We believe that our impressive personnel retention proves the sustainability of the Jackson Square culture. The founders have worked together for more than two decades and the majority of the Investment Team has been together for well over a decade.
Our mission is to achieve superior long-term risk-adjusted returns for our clients.
True to our belief that growing companies can have a positive impact on the world, Jackson Square Partners is a proud Pledge 1% member.
In addition to granting time to all employees to volunteer for the philanthropic causes of their choice, we have created the Jackson Square Partners Foundation to match employee donations and contribute 1% of partnership profits to support charities focusing on education, equality, and the health of our communities and planet.
