What is Lakehouse Capital?

Launched in 2016, Lakehouse Capital is the Sydney-based investment manager of two unlisted managed funds: the Lakehouse Small Companies Fund and the Lakehouse Global Growth Fund.

Lakehouse Capital is the wholly-owned funds management arm of The Motley Fool Australia, a subscription multimedia financial services business owned by the US-based Motley Fool.

Lakehouse Capital's investment process sees it focus on finding shares of competitively-advantaged companies which are growing in attractive industries, and run by aligned management. Lakehouse believes these opportunities tend to offer multiple ways of winning for patient and long-term focused investors.
