The Unwavering Commitment
The Suncoast Difference
There is a reason why our team is personally invested in our strategies. While other managers have changed their processes as new technology and trends emerge, at Suncoast our disciplined process has persisted because the fundamentals do not change. We believe you will share our conviction as you learn more about our research process.
A History of Outperformance
Suncoast Equity Management has, on average, outperformed the market for its clients for over 26 years.
Under the guidance of the firm’s founder, Donald Jowdy, Suncoast became a top 10% Performer within the industry over three, five, and ten year time horizons. Industry consultants like Effron/PSN and Nelson’s Investment Manager Database measured results across investment firms to determine Suncoast was performing in the Top 10%.
Before founding Suncoast Equity Management in 1997, Donald Jowdy worked alongside legendary investor David Polen at the inception of his firm Polen Capital Management. During his tenure with Polen, Mr. Jowdy was instrumental in developing the firm’s investment process which helped drive the company’s growth from a small boutique firm to one of the largest growth managers in the industry. Before joining Polen, he also served as an Equity Analyst for domestic and global investment opportunities at the firm 13D Research.
We Eat Our Own Cooking
The bottom line, our investment professionals have meaningful amounts of their own personal wealth invested in these strategies. We don’t buy anything for a client that we don’t own ourselves. We think this should give you the confidence that our interests are as perfectly aligned with you and your clients as possible.
