History: Public Equities

History: Public Equities

Pacifica Capital Investments, LLC was founded by Steve Leonard in 1998. He was looking for an opportunity to apply to public equities the “value investing” approach that Pacifica deployed so successfully in commercial real estate in Los Angeles in the 1980s and Denver in the 1990s. The prevalence of exceptional companies, combined with the frequency of panics in public markets creating opportunities to buy businesses at very low valuations, he found particularly appealing.
