Brooktree Capital Management seeks to compound client capital and outperform the market averages over long periods of time. We do so by investing in high quality publicly traded businesses via a concentrated portfolio.

Founded in 1996, Brooktree Capital Management is owned and managed by Brian R. Ellis and Hunter E. Lewis, CFA.

Brooktree Capital Management seeks to compound client capital at a better than market average rate over long periods of time. We do so using the below approach:

  • We invest in companies that are publicly traded.
  • We conduct extensive research to identify exceptional businesses and concentrate in our best ideas.
  • When making an investment we seek to pay a fair to discounted price.
  • Permanent loss of capital is the risk we guard against, not volatility. 
  • Our approach leads us to generally ignore broader market noise and focus on individual equity securities.
  • We are agnostic to market cap, industry classificaiton, and style box.
  • We believe focusing on the atrributes of the business, and not over paying, will result in superior long term results and decreased risk.
  • We implement all of this via separately managed accounts.

If our approach resonates with you and you would like to learn more, please contact us.


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.
