Investing in Quality
With roots as a multi-family office, Hutner Capital specializes in preserving and growing family wealth. Working with individuals, their families, and related institutions, we apply our long-term focus on growing economic value to invest in great businesses with enduring competitive advantages and a proven track record of growing earnings over time.
Our analysis is based on microeconomic and business principles with the intent of avoiding the speculative mentality that so often pervades the financial markets. All strategies emphasize long-term investments in high-quality companies – aiming to maximize returns and safety while minimizing capital gains taxes and other costs such as brokerage commissions and bid/ask spreads. Our income strategy focuses on those high-quality companies yielding high current and growing income, and typically includes securities higher up the capital structure, including preferred stock and bonds. All individually managed accounts are tailored to the client's current and future objectives, and are adjusted over time as these change.
