About Us


The Future Fund LLC is an SEC-Registered Investment Advisor. We've identified megatrends that we believe are the most influential multi-year secular growth opportunities shaping the future. Our focus is on companies that can change the world by capitalizing on these fundamental changes in their markets.

Focused on leading secular growth opportunities

We manage concentrated, high-conviction secular growth portfolios for clients in both a long-only and a hedged equity structure.

Discovering unrecognized equity value

We believe transformative companies will displace legacy industry incumbents in several key sectors.

How we differ

1

Focused portfolios backed by intensive research

We apply deep industry research and create concentrated, high-conviction portfolios.

2

Unique return profile

We are benchmark agnostic and do not manage to an index, thereby creating high active share and a non-correlated return profile.


3

Blending people, investment, and operational expertise

Our partners have decades of investment experience and first-hand operational skill gained from managing companies.

 

4

Opportunistic and tactical

We strive to exploit short-term dislocations in the market, creating incremental alpha.


5

Managing risk on multiple levels

We manage risk intensively, both fundamentally and quantitatively.


6

Fully aligned with investors

We have a fully transparent business model, tied to investment performance to ensure our clients’ interests come first.

Our Process

Targeting Businesses Capitalizing on Secular Trends Over Three to Five Years

Portfolio Managers


Gary and David began working together in 2013, both specializing in growth stock investing based on fundamental research. With career foundations as analysts, they employ deep fundamental research and modeling to select catalyst-driven secular growth candidates for client portfolios.

Their shared history and prior successes at investment management firms allow them to come to consensus quickly, making investment decisions targeted to benefit clients. Both strongly believe in active management, proprietary research, and high conviction strategies that are not tied to benchmarks.
