Taking on the Fund Managers

In 2007, business television personality Kevin O’Leary went shopping for a fund management firm he could call his own; one that matched his value-yield style of investing. He soon clicked with Stanton Asset Management chief and Wall Street veteran Connor O’Brien, and the pair launched O’Leary Funds, which has seen its assets under management grow from $400-million in year one to $1.2-billion today. Mr. O’Brien recently spoke with Dan Ovsey about the genesis of O’Leary Funds, working with a celebrity and the strategy behind the success of the relatively new partnership. Following is an edited transcript of their conversation.
