This Small Austin Based Hedge Fund Founded By A Successful Polish Entrepreneur Is Beating Market By Recognizing Growing MoatsMark Melin
Lukasz Tomicki, the founder of Austin, TX-based LRT Capital, had a life-changing moment after he achieved a degree of success. This led him into the hedge fund business where his emerging strategy has outperformed the major stock and hedge fund indices, he told ValueWalk. How the fund outperforms “the markets” speaks to recognizing a long term trend in growing a “moat” and his nimble size.
Tomicki, born in Warsaw, Poland, immigrated to the US as a child, attending high school in Missouri. It was here his entrepreneurial spirit and eye for opportunity was on display started a software company, LobbyAssist, that tracked legislation and campaign finance at the state level. He and his high school buddy partner teamed up with a Midwest lobbyist, patented the process, and scaled the software to cover 50 states in four years. He sold the business in 2010, “at a time before the SAAS (software as a service) business model was popular,” he told ValueWalk, then quipping in true hedge fund fashion: “I should have waited until it became more popular and those companies were selling at 8X revenue.”
