About Us

Our Firm

Headquartered in New York, GAMCO Investors, Inc., was founded by Mario Gabelli in 1977. Since then, it has operated under a simple premise: to earn a superior absolute return for clients through the implementation of its proprietary Private Market Value (PMV) with a CatalystTM approach to value investing. Gabelli is known for the rigorous application of this fundamental value investing discipline.

The Firm’s research team covers industries on a global basis in order to identify attractive investment opportunities. It opened its London research office in 2000, immediately following Vodafone’s hostile takeover of Mannesmann. Today, the Firm’s research efforts span the globe.

Publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange (GBL), Gabelli Asset Management consists of over 200 proven and tenured professionals dedicated to client returns. Clients include corporate pensions, endowments, high net worth families, and retail funds. The Firm manages fourteen NYSE traded closed end equity funds, making it one of the largest closed end fund managers in the United States, as well as two LSE traded closed-end equity funds.
