CooksonPeirce, a privately held boutique investment firm based in Pittsburgh, recently received recognition that underscores the firm’s continued growth. The Pittsburgh Business Times named CooksonPeirce to its 2019 “Fast 50,” an annual barometer of private companies that are on the move.
“At CooksonPeirce, we are proud of our heritage as a 35-year-old investment firm with a model rooted in quantitative analysis and the numbers,” said Dan Henderson, CEO of CooksonPeirce. “This latest recognition from the Pittsburgh Business Times demonstrates that our growing client base – both private investors and investment advisors – trusts us to come up with principled yet agile investment strategies that will help them to achieve their financial goals.”
CooksonPeirce ranked 26th out of 50 companies in the 2019 “Fast 50” survey, up from 46 in last year’s rankings. The firm reported revenue of $10.1 million in 2018 and saw more than 63-percent growth in sales over a two-year period. In 2018, the firm opened a second office in Akron, Ohio to better serve a growing client base in Youngstown, Columbus and Cleveland.
The Pittsburgh Business Times “Fast 50” is an annual ranking of companies that are locally based and privately held. This year’s rankings were derived from the percentage of growth between 2016 and 2018.
