About Us

Houssels Capital Management, LLC, founded in 2000, is a money management firm based in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Houssels Capital Management seeks to invest and behave as a responsible owner fiduciary: only buying businesses that provide a value to the world at large, paying a price that, with reasonable estimation, will provide an attractive return to the owners, and minimizing portfolio turnover in the aggregate.
