Armstrong Shaw Associates Inc., an SEC registered investment advisor, has been providing large cap value equity management to institutions and individuals since 1984 under the stable leadership of Jeffrey Shaw, co-founder of the firm and Chief Investment Officer. Our single product approach enables complete focus on our strategy and aligns our interests with our clients. The firm has a varied client base including endowments, foundations, religious and charitable organizations, and individuals.

Armstrong Shaw was founded by Jeffrey Shaw and Ray Armstrong in April 1984. The firm’s philosophy has been consistent since the firm’s inception. Armstrong Shaw’s philosophy comes from the background of the founders. Ray Armstrong, the co-founder of the firm had been on the Board of two venture capital firms, Narragansett Capital and Brentwood Associates and was involved with 50 private transactions. Ray was very committed to estimating the value of businesses and generating return by buying at bargain prices. Jeff had been a commercial lender for the money center bank Manufacturers Hanover Trust (now part of JPMorgan Chase) and estimated the likelihood of companies’ ability to pay back loans using both a cash flow and asset appraisal approach – the same techniques that Ray used in his analysis. This approach to valuing businesses and buying them at prices equal to or less than 70% of intrinsic value has been consistent since the founding of the firm. Additionally Monica Grady, Principal, has been at the firm since 1984. Ray retired from the business in 1996 in his early 70's.
