Our Culture

TFS Capital is not like most investment management firms. Here are a few things that set us apart.

Location — Off the beaten path

We are located in West Chester, Pennsylvania, about 25 miles west of Philadelphia. It’s a great little town, with dozens of restaurants and shops within walking distance.

Expertise — Cutting edge strategies

We specialize in managing “alternative” funds including the TFS Market Neutral Fund (ticker: TFSMX), which invests in long and short equity positions, and the TFS Hedged Futures Fund (ticker: TFSHX) which invests in long and short futures positions.

Culture — An entrepreneurial, collegial meritocracy

Given its quantitative investment approach, TFS Capital operates more like an entrepreneurial technology company than a financial services firm. We are a flat organization of highly driven analytical individuals with varied backgrounds. Employees must be comfortable in a collegial environment where the best ideas are rewarded regardless of one’s work experience, resume or title.

Career Growth — Rapid advancement for top performers

As a growing company of fewer than 30 employees, TFS Capital provides exceptional career growth opportunities for star performers. Our philosophy is to reward top performers who create value by aggressively growing employee compensation and responsibility. TFS Capital is 100% employee-owned and many employees have owner-like compensation in that a significant portion of their compensation is tied to company performance.
