Capital Counsel, founded in 1999, is an independent investment management firm based in New York City.
We manage concentrated portfolios of large‐cap and mid‐cap companies based in the U.S., or with large U.S. operations. We choose these stocks from ideas generated through the investment team’s in‐depth, bottom‐up research efforts. Our disciplined investment process requires us to focus on how management runs their company.
Our clients include high-net-worth individuals and their families, foundations, and endowments. The source of the net worth for many of our clients is ownership in successful businesses. Some are former executives of companies held in our clients’ portfolios. They have become clients because they understand and respect our investment process.
We build our business one client at a time through word-of-mouth referrals and personal recommendations. We operate as an independent boutique and invest alongside our clients.
Our clients have no intention of remaking any of the money entrusted to our care. Accordingly, we resist the temptation to try to prove our cleverness by taking heedless risks with their money.
People make money, things don’t. That’s why it is essential for us to know the character and capability of a company’s management before we invest in its stock.
We are responsible stewards of our clients’ money and adhere to these 6 core values.
We are an independently-owned investment management and advisory firm established in 1999. We develop our own unconstrained views and insights, and work diligently to deliver objective, bespoke solutions to clients.
We are active managers focused in areas where we have expertise and can provide value consistently.
We know that working together results in better outcomes within our organization and with our clients. We ask our clients what they want their money to do for them and invest accordingly.
Overvaluation and undervaluation are characteristics of financial markets. Our practical advice helps clients navigate markets by finding growing businesses run by competent, honest managers who are wary of borrowing money to grow faster because they have managed businesses through difficult times. We make sure our clients understand what they own and why they own it.
We are responsible, ethical, and competent professionals who work hard to earn our clients' trust and confidence. We always keep their financial interests first and foremost.
We strive to do what is right - not what is easy - and succeed when our clients succeed. We invest our assets alongside those of our clients.
