Founded more than 20 years ago, Burgundy Asset Management Ltd. (“Burgundy”) is an investment manager serving pension, endowment, foundation and private clients. We are also privileged to serve prominent universities and colleges across Canada and the United States.

Burgundy is 100% independent and owned by its employees and we are committed to remaining a private firm. This ownership structure fosters stability by enabling us to attract and retain highly talented individuals. More importantly, Burgundy employees invest their personal assets alongside our clients so that our interests are directly aligned.
The firm’s investment philosophy is founded on the tenet that capital preservation is a key element in generating strong absolute returns over the long term. Burgundy is committed to a disciplined value investment approach with a focus on quality companies. We stress the value of our independent, bottom-up research and fundamental approach in assessing individual companies. The firm’s research approach is complimented by extensive world-wide travel – our investment team conducts over 500 on-site company visits annually.
Burgundy offers a breadth of product offerings to meet the various needs of universities and colleges. We have deep international experience and global bench strength that supports all of our investment strategies. Burgundy has been investing in Asia since 1998 and in Europe since 2000; we manage assets in Canadian, U.S., international, global and fixed income strategies.
