Investment Team

The interaction of our structure and team drives our outcomes. Hood River Capital Management is 100% owned by the investment team, with our three equal partners acting as co-portfolio managers. All portfolio managers perform their own active research in a generalist role, and each of the three portfolio managers has more than 20 years of experience analyzing small capitalization stocks. Our small cap growth strategy has a strong continuous track record dating back to 2002.
