Our Philosophy


We believe the most important decision is proper asset class selection and a highly disciplined, unemotional method of evaluating risk/reward potential across investment choices.

Exposure Matches Views

Our perspective is long-term, yet our process involves evaluating the underlying well-being of the market on an ongoing basis. We watch for indications of a shift in dynamics; when a change in reward/risk is warranted, exposure is adjusted as needed.


While all investment strategies are apt to experience periods of underperformance, to be most effective in a variety of market environments we believe flexibility is a key component. Our guiding disciplines combined with this flexibility helps to maximize our success. 

Our Team

Sound strategies and proven investment models are nothing without the talented people to provide management and direction. The Leuthold Group is a close-knit team of experienced professionals, committed to superior investment solutions and exceptional client service.

Our History

The Leuthold Group began in 1981 as an institutional investment research firm. Founder Steve Leuthold built a research team and investment policies incorporating technical and quantitative methodologies, broad sector and industry group analysis, supply/demand dynamics, and historical intrinsic value relationships.

In 1987, The Leuthold Group established a Registered Investment Adviser offshoot to direct investment portfolios using the firm’s institutional research models as the foundation for its equity selection and asset allocation process. A policy of disciplined, unemotional, and strategic investing, backed by solid and comprehensive research, has enabled The Leuthold Group to establish a strong track record and achieve impressive client loyalty.
