Taking a Vision and Making It Reality with Chris Carsley and Brock Freeman at Kirkland Capital

Brock Freeman and Chris Carsley are the Managing Partners of Kirkland Capital Group and managers of the Kirkland Income Fund. Their objective is to provide a high-yield, principal preservation-focused fixed income return to help build and fortify wealth for their investors.

“We are bringing something that people are going to demand, so let's just go to work. So, we wrote our own checks. We started with a friends and family round and amassed everything we possibly could. And we just started writing debt. That was probably the key right decision to not give up; to realize that what we had created was working. And even if it was baby steps at first, just get going. And it turned out to be the right decision that led to a number of intros. If anyone's out there and you're starting your fund, sometimes just get it started so that it's no longer an idea that you're talking about, but something real.

It's cliche, but we put our money where our mouth was.

I know you were kind of joking how this is your first interview with two people, but that is our superpower. It's that Chris and I have a long relationship already as friends, we have a deep respect for each other's area of expertise, but at the same time, there's enough crossover that Chris can very quickly understand what I'm talking about, with loans or any of the other things that I handle as a COO.

And when Chris talks about different parts of the fund, etc, because I have that finance background, it's not hard for me to go, ‘Yep. I get it.’ So we can be responsible for each other's area. We can watch over each other's decision-making and are actually able to weigh in and help each other, and sometimes change our minds on things.

So being together, that full transparency with each other, the decades of investment management, operations, risk management, regs, compliance, I could go on and on with what we bring and we put together, that's really our superpower.”
