Team Overview

The DSG Team, which includes David Gottesman (DSG), Jack Varon, Dan Helmick, and Michael Kelter, has managed portfolios for First Manhattan Co. clients since 1964. The team's long-term track record reflects a history of prudent investing, protecting and steadily building clients' wealth over time. They believe strongly in long-term investing and in the power of compounding. As patient, risk-averse, value-oriented investors, they conduct deep due diligence before making any investments on their clients' behalf. This has historically allowed for low portfolio turnover and tax efficiency.
