Proudly Serving Clients through Research-Driven Investing

Since 1977

Since 1977, First Wilshire has been serving high net-worth individuals and institutional investors guided by a value philosophy: recognizing companies with great prospects at an attractive price. Our Portfolio Managers and Analysts have the energy and tenacity to find such companies, and the patience to hold a position until other investors recognize its value. This discipline applied to undiscovered companies with small capitalization is the most distinguishing characteristic of our firm. Our dedication to performing in-depth, internally-generated research has allowed First Wilshire to attract a loyal following of like-minded professionals and investors.
