Firm History

Foyston, Gordon & Payne Inc. (FGP) was founded in 1980 as a value style investment manager for pension plans, foundations, endowments and high net worth individuals. In the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, the three founders retired and ownership transitioned to the senior management team. In 1999, First Asset Management Inc. (FAMI) acquired a 50.01% interest in FGP. In July 2005, Affiliated Managers Group (AMG) purchased FAMI and through this transaction currently owns a 61% interest in FGP. The remaining FGP shares are held by 23 senior FGP employees. FGP operates autonomously, with FGP management maintaining investment and operational control. The AMG approach preserves the entrepreneurial orientation and culture of its investment management firms by allowing affiliates to retain operational autonomy.

Investment Philosophy

We believe that excess investment returns are achieved by taking a long-term, value-oriented approach to investment based upon detailed, fundamental research analysis. When considering investments, our primary concern is to select good quality securities which are priced conservatively.

Reporting & Communication with Clients

We meet with our clients on a regular basis to report on past performance, review policy and outline current strategy. We want our clients to understand how we manage their money; our philosophy, the approach and its implementation.
