About Check Capital Management

Check Capital Management is a founder-led firm based in Orange County, California. We've been in business for 32 years and are operated out of a single location with 12 employees. With $1.5 billion in assets under management we invest in publicly traded stocks, typically owning 15 to 25 companies, and/or use option contracts to leverage returns specific to Berkshire Hathaway. We offer two fee options for clients to choose from, (1) industry-standard asset-based fee (2) a performance-based management fee where we charge less when performance isn't good and more when times are good.
