A Belief in the Power of Primary Research

Paradigm’s roots extend back to the early 1970s when Candace King Weir founded an institutional research boutique specializing in small-cap equities. Recognizing that small caps presented unique opportunities to capitalize on inefficiencies and valuation discrepancies, Paradigm Capital Management was established in the early 1990s.

Today, we maintain our resolute belief in the outsize return potential of small caps. We continuously refine our research approach, while reaffirming key tenets of our investment process. For instance, we have learned first-hand that constant interaction with and evaluation of a company’s management and competitive positioning can drive superior investment results.
