Chase Investment Counsel Corporation History

Chase Investment Counsel Corporation (CICC) is an independent investment management firm based in Charlottesville, Virginia and registered with the SEC as an investment advisor. The company is employee-owned and manages assets for individuals, families, endowments, foundations, and retirement plans for clients across the United States. The firm also serves as the investment adviser for the large-cap Chase Growth Fund (CHASX/CHAIX) and the Chase Mid-Cap Growth Fund (CHAMX/CHIMX). Each fund has two share classes available to individuals and institutions. The three pillars of the firm’s investment philosophy are high quality, consistent growth, and prudent prices. We believe that our focus on high quality companies with consistent growth records and stocks that are prudently priced leads to better long-term risk adjusted returns in the large- cap growth and mid-cap growth areas. The firm manages large-cap, mid-cap, all-cap equity, and balanced portfolios. CICC was incorporated in 1964 and succeeds the predecessor proprietorship of Derwood S. Chase, Jr., which was founded in 1957. For over fifty years, it has consistently achieved outstanding risk-adjusted investment results using its unique investment process which combines diligent fundamental security analysis and technical disciplines.
