The Bretton Fund is a mutual fund following a concentrated, value strategy. We seek to invest in securities for considerably less than they’re worth, focusing only on our best ideas, and maintain a long time horizon to realize gains. We can be patient for high returns.

We do not manage the fund to mimic the overall market, and we do not manage it to fit into conventional definitions of investment styles and boxes. We seek unconventional success.
