Paul Wick — The Survivor
“Widely recognized as a leading technology investor.”
Paul Wick has been running the Seligman Communications and Information Fund since he was just 25 years old. He started managing the fund in 1989, when personal computers and the digital internet revolution were just beginning. Based on the impressive results this fund has achieved during the last twenty years of his tenure, Paul Wick is widely recognized as a leading technology investor. He is featured regularly in the financial media, and is a highly recruited speaker at technology and investor conferences. Paul received a B.A. in Economics from Duke University and an MBA in Finance from Duke's Fuqua School of Business.
Paul credits his ability to survive the technology melt-down earlier this decade by his willingness to do things different than most other technology managers. Instead of getting swept up into the mania, Paul looks for proven companies with reasonable valuations that generate "boatloads of cash", have a built in customer base and promising growth opportunities to expand their sales. He also looks for companies that do not have a lot of competitors. "It's like having the wind at your back," Paul said in a recent interview.
Paul is a golf and tennis buff who stays in great physical and mental shape. Although he has not yet turned 50, he is clearly the long-time technology sector veteran. We believe Paul Wick's vast experience and more conservative and disciplined investment approach will help his fund clients not only survive, but thrive in the years ahead.
