About the Name: Our firm’s name, pronounced Cal-a-co, is the street I grew up on. The name was chosen as a tribute to the three investment firms that I have had the privilege of working for to date — Makena Capital, Stockdale Street (the Oppenheimer family office), and Tanarra Capital. Both Kalakau Avenue and Makena have names with Hawaiian origins, Stockdale Street is named after an important street to the Oppenheimer Family, and Tanarra also stems from the childhood home of its founder. I am grateful for the opportunities afforded to me by these firms and for the backing their leaders have given me throughout my career and in this new venture. I have learned a great deal from these individuals, my former colleagues, and from various exceptional investment managers around the world. I cannot think of a better training ground.
