“LaSalle Street Capital Management is 100% employee owned”

About Us – Investment Professionals

Overview

LaSalle Street Capital Management, LLC is comprised of seasoned professionals who have had established working relationships with each other for a number of years. Four of the founding individuals worked together at their prior investment management firm. The firm is 100% employee owned.

Several members of the team have “hands-on” business operating experience. This is invaluable from two standpoints: first, it enables us to better identify potential opportunities or pitfalls associated with any investments; second, it helps keep our business operating smoothly. Clients should benefit from both.
