Our Firm

Skylands Capital, LLC is a long/short equity investment firm specializing in U.S. equities. Skylands manages four long-biased long/short portfolios as well as long-only assets.

Skylands’ origins date to 1983, the year our oldest portfolio was launched within our predecessor firm, Strong Capital Management (“SCM”). Skylands’ owner and head portfolio manager, Charles ("Chip") Paquelet, began his career at SCM in 1989. While Chip was tasked with many roles at SCM, managing and growing the hedge fund business unit was his primary responsibility. In 2004, with the full endorsement of SCM, Chip led a management buyout of the hedge fund business unit into a newly created firm named Skylands Capital, LLC. Reflecting Skylands' emphasis on continuity, the majority of our team members today were formerly associates at SCM.

A number of Skylands’ associates have personal capital invested alongside our clients, ensuring our interests are aligned.

The firm is registered as an investment advisor with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

“We have many client relationships that span over 20 years. This speaks to our long-term investment performance and commitment to the client.”
