​St. James was started with the goal of providing a patient, long-term value approach to investing based on a consistent process.


St. James Investment Advisors was named after the town of St. James, where the founding member Brian Mark grew up. The hamlet of St. James, New York, was founded in 1853 and is located on the north shore of Long Island in Suffolk County. St. James is now part of a much larger town called Smithtown.
