President and Chief Investment Officer, Check Capital Management
Steve Check is the President and Chief Investment Officer of Check Capital Management, an award-winning asset management firm based in Southern California that serves clients throughout the U.S. For 35 years it has helped investors protect and grow their assets, currently totaling $1.5 billion.
CNBC, Barron’s, Financial Times and other business/finance publications have recognized Steve as one of the nation’s top financial advisors.
Steve has championed a win-win fee structure that is unique among money managers: Check Capital receives 10% of account profits, with no minimum fee (available only to “qualified clients”). In other words, Check Capital makes money with clients, not off clients.
Besides this fair fee arrangement, clients appreciate Check Capital’s commonsense approach to investing in the stock market.
Early in Steve’s investment journey he discovered Warren Buffett, from whom he learned the time-tested principles of value investing. Steve has attended the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholder’s meeting for 27 consecutive years and is considered an authority on the company.
Check Capital offers three different investment programs (see attachments below). Each strategy has delivered to clients strong audited performance over the long term.
“We look for the best companies and patiently wait to buy them at attractive prices. Think of us as focused investors—we long ago concluded that owning 15 to 20 of the best names is better than owning 50 or 100 mediocre names.”
