Brooktree Capital Management seeks to preserve and compound wealth over long periods of time. We do so by investing in high quality businesses at attractive prices relative to their estimated value.

Vice President - Portfolio Manager

Hunter drives the investment selection process at Brooktree Capital Management, with a distinct focus on long term, fundamental, value investing.

Hunter is a native of West Michigan and has held numerous leadership positions within the CFA Society of West Michigan, including his current position as president.


We preserve and compound capital by investing in high quality businesses with unique competitive advantages that should generate higher than average returns on invested capital over long periods of time. When making an investment in a business, we seek to pay a fair to attractive price relative to our estimate of value. Our approach leads us to ignore broader market noise and focus on individual securities, instead of mutual funds and ETFs, to generate long-term success.

We implement all of this on your behalf by careful and deliberate investment selection, minimizing taxes and transaction costs, and by allowing the power of long-term compounding to take hold.

If our approach resonates with you we would like to hear from you.


Relationships and results make all the difference when it comes to investments. We are confident that you will be pleased with both at Brooktree Capital Mangement.
