Why Nicholas Company

Nicholas Company is an independently owned investment firm that has operated under the same investment philosophy, process and management since its founding by Albert, “Ab”, O. Nicholas in 1967. Our philosophy is based on a fundamental, bottom-up approach to security selection with a long-term investment horizon.  Our process focuses on identifying securities offering secular growth characteristics, strong financial bases, reasonable valuations and downside risk. Our long-term approach deemphasizes the short-term impact of day-to-day market volatility and maintains a focus on the long-term potential of the securities in our portfolios. Providing a more consistent return with reduced volatility encourages investors to maintain market exposure and stay invested for the long run. The Nicholas investment style tends to appeal to investors willing to forego some upside in market cycles for a more consistent return with the potential for less downside risk. 

Invest with Nicholas Funds

Nicholas Funds offer four investment strategies that are open to investors on a direct basis, via a brokerage platform or through their financial adviser. A key objective for Nicholas Funds is to keep expense ratios low in an effort to return as much of the investment performance back to the shareholders. To accommodate the different methods investors choose to invest in mutual funds, Nicholas offers both Institutional Shares (“I Shares”) as well as “N Shares” for a select group of our Funds. The N Shares offers a 12b-1 and servicing fee for platforms, retirement plans and financial advisers.

Mutual fund investing involves risk; principal loss is possible. Small- and medium-capitalization companies tend to have limited liquidity and greater price volatility than large-capitalization companies. Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investment by the Funds in lower-rated and non-rated securities presents a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. 

Past performance does not guarantee future results.

Diversification does not assure a profit nor protect against loss in a declining market.
