The 13F report details which stocks were in a guru’s equity portfolio at the end of the quarter, though investors should note that these filings are limited in scope, containing only a snapshot of long positions in U.S.-listed stocks and American depository receipts as of the quarter’s end. They are not required to include international holdings, short positions or other types of investments. Still, even this limited filing can provide valuable information.

Greenhaven Associates was officially established when the founder Edgar Wacheheim decided to buy Greenhaven Associates from the Gottesman family in 1998.

The company’s top holdings in FedEx Corporation, Lowes Companies, Inc., Goldman Sachs Group, and JPMorgan Chase & Co. each make up over 10% of its total holdings and its top 10 holdings alone make up almost 90% of its total. Greenhaven Associates currently holds over $5.7 billion in total assets under management spread across almost 200 accounts, all of which are discretionary accounts. Although its total number of accounts has only been increasing moderately in recent years, its total assets under management has grown significantly, rising from $2.1 billion back in 2010 to approaching three times that amount today. Greenhaven Associates mainly caters to high net worth individuals, which alone makes up over half of its client base, and also provides services to charities, pension and profit sharing plans, investment companies, and others, in order of decreasing clientele.
