On today’s manager meeting, Ellen Ellison speaks with Jon
Brolin. Ellen is the former Chief Investment Officer of the
University of Illinois Foundation, which she joined in 2013 as the
first leader of the now $2.4 billion Foundation.
Jon is the Founder and Managing Partner of Edenbrook Capital,
a $400 million manager of a concentrated portfolio of micro and
small cap U.S. equities. Edenbrook applies a private markets
approach to public markets, intending to own and add value to its
portfolio companies over a multi-year time horizon.
First, Ellen and I discuss how she came to find an off-the-run
manager and some of her process in getting over the hurdle to
allocate to what became a very successful partnership.
