Choice Equities Capital Management (CECM) was created to continue offering our clients the concentrated, capital appreciation vehicle previously offered as the Focused Distribution Strategy (FDS). In 2017 we founded the company as an independent and standalone investment manager to continue our pursuit of this investment approach while expanding our investment universe beyond our original target set of only distribution companies. While our opportunity set has broadened, in many ways we are simply returning to our roots as we continue to focus primarily on small caps.

CECM is comprised of founder Mitchell Scott, CFA, and Claire Young and has a relationship with John Pitt of Culbreath Capital to assist in investor relations activities.
