About

 

Odlum Capital was formed in 2008 and is headquartered in Miami Beach, Florida. The organization maintains offices and investments in Ohio, North Carolina, and New Jersey; however, our immediate geographical investment interests are specific to Appalachia.

Namesake

 

Odlum Capital was named after legendary investor, philanthropist, and pubic servant, Floyd Odlum, who was perhaps the only man to build a great fortune during the Great Depression. However, he represents more to us than just his unparalleled investment results during a time of national crisis. As President Johnson said, "Floyd Odlum has built a legendary record of personal and financial successes. But we who know Floyd are much more impressed by the riches that he has given than by the riches he has received." 

 

We aim to live up to our namesake by making investments that make a difference -- and making our company a place where profit meets purpose.
