“Success is When Preparation and Opportunity Meet”
I am the founder & CEO of Abernathey Holding Co. (AHC) I began my investing career at the age of 13, investing in a variety of public securities. Since the beginning, I have been deeply interested in Warren Buffett’s value investing approach, and Gary Tharaldson’s simplicity approach.
Prior to beginning my investment career in full earnest, I always had a deep interest in the business. This passion was exhibited with the commencement of other business operations. I, alongside my brother, founded Abernathey Brothers Farm, which is in the business of planting, growing, and harvesting thousands of acres of small grains to then sell in the open market. The operations have quickly grown into multiple locations in Lansford and Bottineau North Dakota. I believe Mr. Buffett’s quote “One is a better businessman because he is an investor, and a better investor because he is a businessman.”
I launched AHC in August of 2012. AHC’s investment strategy shifted in 2019 to only focusing, and investing in our farming operations and developing Class-A self-storage facilities across the United States. Since its inception, AHC has achieved market-beating returns and has grown its assets under management.
Along with my corporate ventures, I am immersed in the nonproﬁt sector as well. Currently, I am working alongside, Fargo-based, Unseen to fight human trafficking across the world. Not only do I like to focus on my business life, but I also like it in my “giving back” strategies. I believe there should be a way to donate money into a system that maintains and grows itself; in essence, creating a business model that is sustainable. I believe that if you give a man a ﬁsh, you feed him for the day. If you teach a man to ﬁsh, you feed him for a lifetime.
