We're here for the long run.

When it comes to investing and safeguarding your future, Woodley Farra Manion Portfolio Management embraces a simple philosophy: It’s a marathon, not a sprint. Rather than focusing on short, flashy bursts and a quick finish, we patiently plot your course, prepare for the long run, and help you cross a finish line that, in essence, you’ve trained for your entire life.

Before choosing a pair of shoes, a runner asks experts for advice, tries on a few pairs, and checks the fit. We constantly investigate and analyze thousands of stocks. Let us find the best fit for you.

Our Unique Approach

There are other ways to mitigate risk besides solely relying on diversification and asset allocation. You should know what’s in your portfolio.

The over-diversified approach also suggests a fundamental fallacy: If you own the entire market, it’s impossible for your portfolio to outperform it. (And you miss out on discovering exceptional companies that can perform higher than the mean.)

We believe there’s a better way, and our clients do, too. We have achieved long-term success even when the market is volatile by rooting our portfolios in the complicated work of financial analysis. We pore over financial statements and analyze the competitive environment to find top-performing companies and help our clients realize excellent returns.
