About Sandhill

Your investments. Your goals. Your financial life. For all of that, we want to be your partner.

Built on driving results and putting clients first

Our deep commitment to our clients is at the forefront of everything we do. We understand that everyone’s situation is unique, and our range of investment products is carefully designed to ensure we are able to align expectations with execution.

Sandhill takes a long-term and thoughtful view when deploying capital. We often spend weeks or months studying a potential investment – paying close attention to how free cash flow is allocated and getting to know the people who run our portfolio companies. We know exactly what we are looking for: companies with long lived structural advantages and hidden earnings power that have yet to be recognized by the market.

Since our inception in 2004, our passion for research has been our defining strength. By taking a thoughtful, thematic approach to the investment process, we are able to identify opportunities that offer the greatest combination of value and quality.

Our Edge

Original thinking and attention to detail are what differentiates good investors from great. At Sandhill, we pride ourselves on nurturing both of those skills and adhering to our investment process through up and down markets. This combination of skills and discipline, along with a deeply-held belief in the importance of our client relationships, has generated a culture that defines us.

The Sandhill team as a whole is a combination of several smaller teams working in concert toward one unified goal: to provide an exceptional client experience and meaningful returns.

Led by our company founder, Edwin M. “Tim” Johnston III, and a hand-picked team of equity analysts, our investment team works tirelessly to identify best-in-class opportunities in all segments of the market. The investment team leverages years of experience and continuity to deeply understand the operating and economic characteristics of our portfolio companies.

Our relationship management and operations teams provide knowledgeable support and give our clients the specific, in-depth attention they deserve in exchange for their trust in our process.

Passion for research is the constant that has defined Sandhill from Day One. Our defined approach provides a framework for thorough consideration of every investment. We go far beyond balance sheets and financial metrics to identify the “hidden” differentiators that are so crucial to the long-term success of any franchise company.

Risk Adjusted Return

While risk is inherent in any investment process, our insistence on holding nothing but the highest quality assets helps minimize risk without sacrificing returns.

Capital Preservation

By having a deep understanding of our portfolio holdings, we can focus our energy on companies with strong balance sheets and free cash flow to avoid permanent capital loss. Prudent investing is a cornerstone of our process.

Tax Efficiency

As we design a portfolio for our clients, we make it a point-of-emphasis to understand their expectations with regards to tax implications and every effort is made to maximize after-tax returns.
