About Us


Founded in 1997 by T'Mando Denson EL, MD, Denson EL Investment Management (Denson EL Group) is an independent global investment management firm that provides a range of investment strategies to serve a broad spectrum of client needs.

Headquartered in Detroit, Michigan, Denson EL is geographically removed from the world’s major financial centers. Being far from the status quo investment arena inspires us to think outside of popular opinion and base our decisions on unconventional wisdom and a larger frame of reference.

Many investment managers may do what we do. Setting us apart from them, however, is how we do it:  how we think,  how we invest, and how we’re structured.


Our Flexible Perspective

We bring a more flexible perspective than that of other investment firms. We view a wider range of opportunities and look beyond conventional boundaries to find hidden value.

Constant Collaboration

We collectively hone ideas via borderless cross-pollination across our investment team for better judgement and competitive results.


By Conviction, Not Convention

We invest differently. We take a disciplined approach to portfolio construction, guided more by convictions than convention.

Rather than using benchmarks as our starting point, we apply active management to seek the best value for our clients. Thorough analysis and our relative-value framework lead to conviction in our securities selection, which may result in a focused portfolio.
