Peter A. Vanden Broeck joined Midwest Investment Management LLC as Managing Director in May 2013. His career spans more than 30 years and includes investment and portfolio management roles with several major Wall Street investment advisory and brokerage firms.
He is an experienced portfolio manager, known for his strong commitment to intensive equity research on behalf of his clients.
“At Midwest Investment Management,” said Mr. Vanden Broeck, “I collaborate with like-minded people who view fundamental security analysis as the best weapon to protect and grow capital for our clients. We also share the view that owning stocks represents the partial ownership of a business.
“In fact,” Mr. Vanden Broeck added, “we pride ourselves on owning the same investments as our clients. It raises the threshold of examination.”
“We generate new investment ideas by spending countless hours reading periodicals, company filings, and other materials, resulting in detailed analysis and disciplined valuations,” Mr. Vanden Broeck noted. “We identify facts that we really need to know, and stick to companies whose economics we understand.”
“My investment philosophy is quite simple,” said Mr. Vanden Broeck. “I treat my clients in the same manner as if the roles were reversed. Most importantly, as a fiduciary, I recommend only investments that my clients would want their mothers to own.”
Mr. Vanden Broeck holds a BA in Economics from Macalaster College in St. Paul, Minnesota and has completed additional course work at The University of Paris-Sorbonne. He is a trustee of the Ratner School in Pepper Pike and past treasurer of the Shaker Lakes Nature Center. He resides with his family in Shaker Heights.
