About Us

Character. Culture. Conviction.

Since 2005, Black Creek has managed global and international equities in a disciplined and consistent manner. We are a focused, boutique investment manager and are 100% employee owned.

We invest personally in the strategies we manage, ensuring our interests are aligned with those of our clients. Black Creek employees are invested in the success of Black Creek, in every way.

Our Funds

Black Creek’s goal is to provide capital growth over the long term through investment in common equities, and to achieve superior returns relative to equity market averages in general and to competitors.

Our Team

Establishing a focused, investment-driven culture is the very reason that Black Creek was created. This culture continues to define our organization today, attracting like-minded employees and investors. We are a tight-knit team – one that’s not afraid to respectfully challenge and debate ideas in search of the best results/outcome.

Our Philosophy

Black Creek’s investment-driven approach concentrates on building portfolios of 25-35 winning businesses from around the world that are misunderstood or misperceived by the market. We view any potential investment as though we are looking to acquire the entire company. We are not trading stocks; we are collecting a portfolio of businesses. Our business-owner mindset and long-term perspective allow us to think differently. 

The net result for investors is not only a long-term, high-conviction strategy, but it means our portfolios are eclectic, bearing little resemblance to any global index. Any sector or geographical allocations within our portfolio are a by-product of our unconstrained, go anywhere global style. Our portfolios are concentrated, however there is a conscious diversification of investment ideas.

We focus on understanding the long-term drivers of a winning business, not quarter-to-quarter earnings. Our investment process requires independent and sometimes contrarian thinking. We consider what a business will look like over the next 5-10 years, and short-term market volatility provides the opportunity to create significant value for our clients over time. This approach requires a constitution of character amongst our investment professionals to withstand the inevitable shorter periods of time in which they look completely different – and quite possibly wrong – in order to add long-term value.
