Managing Member - Ovadia Levy

Ovadia Levy

Inspired by the life of his grandfather, Ovadia Levy started his own private equity investment firm, KPL Capital, in 2015. Levy seeks to foster family-style relationships with his clients through transparency and certainty.

Though Ovadia has been active over the years in many different organizations and businesses, his current focus is on KPL Capital Investments LLC. The key to Ovi's success as a private equity investor is found in both his close-knit clientele, and in his dedication to delivering solid results backed by his own capital.

Ovadia attended Hollywood Hills High School in Broward County, Florida; from there he went on to graduate from the University of Florida's Warrington School of Business. Upon graduation he became the president of many companies, including:

  • O.V. Properties LLC
  • Nationwide Auto Leasing & Sales
  • EZ Light Distribution
  • Pre Construction Solutions
  • Channel 2 Florida
  • Renato Grande and Remo watches
  • Swiss Luxury VP
  • Onboard Venture Investing

Levy has been involved in companies that deal in the international distribution of luxury and necessity products to major wholesalers on both the website and brick and mortar level.

Contributions

Ovadia has contributed to many charitable organizations, among them:

  • "Since investing in my electrical contracting company, Ovi's investment and advice has come a long way. Without his advice, business knowledge, and the role he took at my company (as hard as it is to say) I probably wouldn't be writing this today."
    Linh Nguyen Electric Contracting
  • "I had the opportunity to do business with Ovi at KPL, getting to understand his thought process has been a learning experience. Not only are we doing a lot better in terms of bottom line results, he taught us how to think clearer, approach matters at hand better, and understand where we were making mistakes. A real asset to our business. I'm also sure his investment turned out to be a darn good one"
    Garcia Commercial Equipment Supply

    Stan Whitcomb, Naples, FL
  • "Ovadia Levy is an exquisite guy with so much talent in this industry in such a short amount of time. I am truly astonished as to how much he knows, he truly nails it all of the time since investing with his company, very good at due dilligence and seeing companies perform several steps ahead of earnings."
    Vasu Dev, S&P Capital, Equities Research
  • "Ive been in the investing/trading business for 20 years and rarely do you come across a guy like Ovi who has such an understandping and mastery of the financial markets. He is completely accessible to all my concerns. Would highly recommend doing business with him!!!!"
    Matthew Pearlman, S. Pearlman & Associates
  • "I've been following the markets for 20 years, and I've never seen anyone with such an intrinsic understanding of how they operate. Levy intuitively analyzes the most fundamental aspects of some of the biggest companies, and how their stocks trade, such that he's been able to accurately predict how they will perform over a given time period. He foresaw the crash of the FANG stocks more than a year ago, and thanks to his advice, I've made money on the short side."
    Fredrick Strier
  • "I had to reach out because I found your interview on TheStreet.com and thought it was incredibly insightful. I've been building my own case for shorting NFLX and several other highly priced stocks that seem to be impervious headwinds or news of slowdowns. I also watched the video you posted on LinkedIn, and sounds like you think that we're in for a pretty major correction! Today was another example of stock trading at a standstill before the Fed announcement. It's almost surreal. Thanks for the good insight. I hope to see more of your analysis in the future."
    Jimmy Malone
  • "It’s great to hear an investment firm print the truth. Most brokers only call trying to sell a stock to you. My response is always if it is that good why are you selling our stock? I would think your firm would be accumulating a large positions as Principals."
    Ernie Higgins
  • "I previously had dinner with the TPG Capital CIO, Jonathan Coslet, who spoke highly of your firm. He went on to suggest that since I am highly interested in private equity that I reach out to the firm, and hopefully arrange a summer opportunity. I live in Florida and would love to establish a relationship going forward. I apologize if this is too forward, but I've also attached my resume for your consideration. Thank you in advance for your consideration, and would love to discuss any opportunities available as I am eager to get involved with your firm."
