St. James, Inc.

3838 Oak Lawn Avenue, Suite 1414, Dallas, TX 75219
214.484.7250

We founded St. James Investment Company in 1999, managing equity portfolios for both individuals and institutions.  Our investment methodology stresses absolute returns, blending a combination of fundamental analysis, discipline and patience with the goal of preserving and compounding capital.

“An investment operation is one which, upon thorough analysis, promises safety of principal and an adequate return.  Operations not meeting these requirements are speculative.” – Benjamin Graham

Philosophy

We contend that the price we pay for an investment ultimately determines the return.  Further, trying to keep pace with the market in all environments promotes poor decisions.  By focusing on the St. James process, positive outcomes emerge over complete market cycles. Value investing is a philosophy that emphasizes the need to perform fundamental analysis, pursue long-term investment results, limit risk and resist crowd psychology.

Performance

At St. James we employ an absolute return mindset to long-only value investing.  We invest in proven high-quality businesses trading at a discount to our conservative estimate of fair value.  Finally, we focus long-term, patiently awaiting optimal conditions prior to deploying trusted client capital. A margin of safety provides the room one needs to account for errors, imprecision or other various fluctuations of the economy and stock market
