Our History

Conestoga Capital Advisors, LLC is a Delaware limited liability company based in the Philadelphia suburb of Wayne, Pennsylvania.  The firm is a privately held independent registered investment advisory firm specializing in Micro, Small, SMid, and Mid Cap portfolio management.  Conestoga was founded in 2001 when the co-founders purchased assets from their prior organization (Martindale Andres, a unit of M&T Bank) and ported the small cap composite performance record from its inception on December 31, 1998. 

Conestoga is best described as a collegial, boutique firm.  Team members are passionate about the investment approach, which is based on proprietary, bottom-up, fundamental research.  We believe our team-based approach to investing ensures a more comprehensive perspective that ultimately supports our clients’ investment goals.  We further believe that the relatively long experience of our senior investment professionals and their tenure working together are unique relative to most managers.  Compliance is embedded in our culture as an integral part of the organization's ethics, and we are intensely client focused.  

As of December 31, 2023, Conestoga manages approximately $7.8 Billion in client assets.  The firm has grown steadily since its inception and has remained 100% employee-owned. This is a defining feature of Conestoga, one that promotes our strategic initiatives and strengthens the culture of our firm.
