Grandeur Peak Global Advisors® is a micro to mid-cap global equities investment firm comprised of a highly seasoned and collaborative research team. We take a bottom-up approach to investing using disciplined global screening, rigorous company due diligence, and close attention to valuation to find what we believe to be the best investment opportunities around the world.

Our Mission

To be the preeminent global micro to mid-cap investment firm with each investor valued as a partner on our team.

Our Team

We have a veteran team creating a uniquely collaborative and passionate environment that is contagious, and which constantly pushes us to raise our game.

Members of our research team typically wear three hats: a global industry hat, a geography hat, and a portfolio hat. We believe this leads to industry expertise while also developing general knowledge and portfolio management skills. It also ensures multiple minds are engaged with each of our holdings. For all members of our team, the role of analyst remains their most important assignment.

Our Name

Grandeur Peak is a beautiful mountain peak overlooking the Salt Lake valley which provides stunning views of the valley below and beyond. Grandeur Peak reminds us of three important things:

We believe the best perspective comes from a broad, global view;

We believe successful investing, like climbing, takes preparation, discipline, and passion;

We are hired by our clients in a joint endeavor to ascend the peak, and we will strive to build a trusted friendship throughout the climb.

Our Research Process

Our repeatable investment process includes disciplined screening to find interesting companies in every part of the world, thorough hands-on research to sort the wheat from the chaff, and careful monitoring of valuations in an effort to maximize investment results.
