Formed in 1994, Silchester International Investors LLP is multinational investment management company based in London.

The firm specialises in global equity investment, primarily on behalf of institutional investors. Aside from providing services for high net worth individuals and “pooled” investment vehicles, it manages separate client-focused portfolios.

Typically, the firm invests in value stocks, employs fundamental analysis to create its portfolios, and conducts in-house research to make its investments. It offers portfolio management and advisory services to individuals, institutions, trusts, private funds, charitable organizations, and investment companies.

One of the “designated members” of the limited liability partnership was Silchester Partners Limited, but the membership ended on 30 June 2016. Nevertheless, the other “designated members” remain, including Stephen Charles Butt, Michael John Julian Cowan, and Timothy John Linehan.

According to its investment philosophy, Silchester aims to earn an attractive long term investment return through investments in quoted international equities. The firm has one investment program — International Value Equity — and offers this program exclusively through five long-only commingled funds.
