Who We Are

We are a group of experienced, professional investment counselors dedicated to helping our clients meet their financial goals.

Founded in 1989, Cortland Associates is a firm of professional investment counselors committed to managing the assets of private individuals, charitable organizations, and employee benefit plans. The firm's philosophy of value-oriented, risk-averse investing is based on maintaining a focused portfolio of investments that have been analyzed with thorough due diligence.

Understanding our clients is at the root of what we do. Before making any financial decisions, we spend time assessing your needs and developing a unique portfolio that fits with your lifestyle. We pride ourselves on the process we take to ensure our client's needs are met.


In Cortland’s opinion, intelligence without integrity is worthless. We expect the highest integrity from the management of our companies and also of ourselves.

Most of Cortland’s clients have been with us for more than a decade. Many of them have been with us since we started the company about 30 years ago. We invite, indeed encourage, potential clients to speak with our long-term clients to really get a sense of who we are.

There is no marketing staff at Cortland, our firm’s growth has always been based on investment results and word of mouth. We are here to answer any questions you might have and to supply you with sources of outside conversation.
