Richard Snow is the Founder, Managing Principal and Chief Investment Officer of Snow Capital. In his 30+ years of experience as a research analyst and portfolio manager, Richard has developed a unique investment process which serves as the core of the firm's investment philosophy. Richard’s investment experience dates back to 1980 when he formed R.A.S. Capital Management, managing private family assets.

Over time, he has assembled and developed a strong investment team who continue to apply his fundamental, bottom-up stock picking process of value investing.
