A Unique Approach

Chartwell Investment Partners manages active equity, fixed income, and balanced strategies for institutional and advisory clients via separate accounts, sub-advisory relationships, and mutual funds. Our Portfolio Managers and Analysts believe in the importance of intensive bottom-up research and evaluate each company on the basis of its fundamental characteristics.

This successful approach has helped us build deep relationships with our clients, consultants, and distribution partners for nearly a quarter of a century.
