Parnassus Investments is an investment manager that seeks to invest in good businesses that have high returns on capital, above-average growth prospects, ethical business practices, and sustainable competitive advantages. Founded in 1984 and independently owned, we believe the most attractive opportunities for investments are when companies with good business fundamentals become temporarily undervalued due to market sentiment. Our investment philosophy dictates that sound macroeconomic analysis combined with fundamental research is the most effective way to identify attractive investments. We like to buy companies that are growing faster than the rest of the economy, and we like to buy them at attractive valuations. Integrated into the fundamental research is an evaluation of companies' workplaces, environmental policies, product quality, corporate governance and community relations. We currently manage six mutual funds for individual and institutional investors ranging from small-cap to large-cap as well as fixed-income.
