Boutique Fund Size
Nimble, with freedom to navigate the investment universe. A super-sized fund is not our goal.
Jeff intentionally lives and works far from the greed and emotion of Wall Street. At his 108 acre farm, and his nearby office, Jeff and his team are able to conduct the kind of independent thinking that they feel keeps them ahead of the pack, not chasing it. Jeff sees similarities in his work on Wall Street and life on his Oregon farm and ranch. “All take extremely hard work and involve consideration of price, value, margin of safety and wise allocation of capital. This lifestyle keeps you humble and focused on the rewards of hard work. For me, this job is a steward of investors’ hard-earned money. I can’t imagine doing anything else.”
