Independent Thinking

Located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains in Charlottesville, Virginia and near the birthplaces of founding fathers Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe and James Madison, Chase Investment Counsel Corporation is an investment adviser that prides itself on independence of thought and action. Our proprietary investment process blends fundamental and technical analysis and is grounded in our experiences over five and a half decades of market cycles since the firm was founded by Derwood S. Chase, Jr. in 1957.

In Partnership with Investors

We offer high-quality investment portfolios to meet the needs of institutional and individual investors alike through a variety of equity and balanced strategies. Markets will fluctuate, but our passion for following our time-tested, disciplined, risk averse approach to picking stocks and building portfolios remains the same. We are dedicated to helping our clients meet their investment objectives. As an employee-owned firm, our portfolios are invested right along-side yours, whether individuals, families or institutional investors.

Boutique Firm

Chase manages over $400 million for a select group of clients throughout the United States. Our moderate size gives us flexibility to rapidly respond to changing market conditions and the ability to invest not only in the largest companies, but also in many mid-cap growth companies without being worried by their limited trading liquidity. It also allows our clients to have direct access to the investment managers who make decisions on their behalf.
