We are an investment manager with a global focus committed to providing unique insights and opportunities for our clients.
Drum Hill Capital was founded in 1998 with the mission to create a unique type of investment firm, one where entrepreneurial clients could seek out not only traditional asset management services, but receive impartial and informed advice on the wide variety of other endeavors they sought to pursue.
In the time since our founding, the world has changed dramatically: global markets are more connected than ever, and technology seems to be unleashing new challenges and opportunities almost every day. Although we live in an era of unprecedented access to information, separating the signal from the noise has become more challenging than ever.
As all of this has occurred, we have come to realize that our most valuable asset is our unique and ever-changing worldview. Staying abreast of the trends across industries, markets and borders, we are always on the lookout for unique opportunities. For our clients, our broad knowledge base is a valuable resource, informing portfolio management decisions in public and private markets, building new connections between generations of entrepreneurs and offering in-depth, unbiased insights on the trends changing our world.
We offer a unique suite of services to serve the needs of our entrepreneurial client base.
