Chuck Akre recently filed their 13F report for the second quarter of 2022, which ended on 2022-06-30.

They are not required to include international holdings, short positions or other types of investments. Still, even this limited filing can provide valuable information.

Chuck founded Akre Capital Management in 1989 after 21 years in the securities business at NYSE member firm Johnston, Lemon & Co. At Johnston, Lemon & Co., he managed various parts of the business, including branch management, research and asset management. Beginning in June of 1993, Akre operated the firm under the umbrella of Friedman, Billings, Ramsey & Co. Taking the business private again in 2000, he moved the firm to the rural village of Middleburg, Virginia.
