Martin Investment Management, LLC a majority women owned investment advisor, reflects the investment philosophy of Mary E. Hogan, a relative of our company’s managing directors. In 1944, her obituary described her as “One of the nation’s shrewdest business women…who made history in the lumber and logging industry.” She wrote her unique signature on checks ranging from a few cents to hundreds of thousands of dollars using only her initials. Her investment philosophy of buying stocks in growing, high quality companies is an integral part of the investment philosophy of our firm to this day.
