About Us

Cooper Management’s investment priority is achieving attractive long-term, risk-adjusted returns while focusing on principal protection.


Our purpose is providing a platform for the Family to sustain and cultivate its history, heritage, and culture.  We aim to prepare family members to collectively manage, sustain, and grow their wealth across multiple generations. The family office has another, arguably, higher purpose which is to bridge generations in order to create continuity and cohesion for families around their wealth.

Our Story

Eli Field was born in 1910 and raised in England. At age 13, he left Liverpool, England for America to meet his father, who had earlier immigrated to Chicago. For a time, Eli worked as a salesman for a box manufacturer but was unfulfilled in his work and thought he could do better. So, with $500, Eli founded Field Container Corp LLP in 1942. Success shortly followed.
