After running one of the earliest mutual funds focused exclusively on the emerging Internet economy, Ryan Jacob struck out on his own in 1999 to found the eponymous firm. Today, Jacob Asset Management (JAM) is based in Los Angeles, California, with offices in Hermosa Beach and New York. The firm provides investment solutions for both retail and institutional clients through three distinct mutual funds – Jacob Internet Fund (JAMFX), Jacob Small Cap Growth Fund (JSCGX), Jacob Discovery Fund (JMCGX), and one exchanged traded fund – Jacob Forward ETF (JFWD).
With varied backgrounds and an average 25+ years of investment experience, JAM’s portfolio managers provide insights and expertise into the Internet and technology sectors, as well an increasing number of other industries. Fine-tuning a proprietary investment process over the years, JAM now offers funds which include a wide range of sectors and market capitalizations. But the goal at Jacob Asset Management remains what it was the first day Ryan Jacob opened the company’s doors: find unique, exciting and enduring companies that have the potential to create significant value for both the global economy and their investors.
