Alger is widely recognized as a pioneer of growth style investment management. We have been an independent, privately owned firm since our inception in 1964. For over 50 years, we have had three leaders with one vision: Maintaining the legacy and continuity of the Alger Investment Philosophy.

Why Alger?
  • Vibrant, research intensive culture
  • Proven, repeatable and consistent investment process
  • Boutique size means exposure to all levels of the firm and opportunities to add value

Corporate Values

The Alger Investment Philosophy focuses on companies undergoing Positive Dynamic Change which we believe offers investors the best long-term growth potential. We strive to deliver consistently superior investment results for our clients. Investment management is our only business, which ​enables us to remain true to our investment beliefs.

Company Culture

Alger is an entrepreneurial, privately owned firm which encourages and empowers its employees to be intellectually curious and continually improve. We seek individuals who can think independently yet work collaboratively, are motivated to be best in class, challenge the norm and have fun while doing it. Alger values its employees and rewards them accordingly​. ​Alger provides ample training (see below) to employees and encourages employees to grow in their roles. This culture of continuous improvement is reflected by the fact that many Alger employees have worked at the firm for 10, 15+ years.
Alger is also a very civic-minded firm where an internal group, the Candlelight Committee​, is tasked with partnering with organizations making a genuine impact in their communities. Alger employees routinely participate in events with these organizations including Habitat for Humanity, Harlem Educational Activities Fund, The ​Nature Conservancy, ParentChild+, Target Margin Theater​ and many others. Alger also encourages employees to support other organizations with a generous matching gift program.​


Alger is invested in its people. Training and career development of our new and current employees is key to the success of our people and Firm. To this end, Alger provides training to new hires through various means, including general industry training, position specific training and personal development.

Our financial wellness program provides access to a variety of resources, learning opportunities and expert guidance to help you achieve your goals at each stage of life. Alger provides its employees with numerous ways to save and invest, including​ a comprehensive 401(k) with a generous employer match, financial planning tools, automatic investing plans and more.

Work/Life Balance

We’re focused on helping you more easily manage your work and personal lives. Our life management programs include​ paid time off, sick leave, paid medical leave, paid parental leave, health club membership reimbursement program and helpful employee assistance programs.


Talent isn't something found in one particular segment of the world. Rising stars and established professionals are found throughout all walks of life, scattered across different genders, races, ages and identities. Alger has always understood this, and we are committed to creating a diverse work environment.

  • ​Our firm and our employees make significant donations to organizations such as the Environmental Defense Fund
  • We are carbon neutral, a result of various environmentally friendly initiatives taken on within the firm as well as donations made to carbon offset projects
  • We are a signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investment, which illustrates our commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in our investment decision making
