An opportunistic investment management firm seeking to generate exceptional,
risk-adjusted returns for our clients.
Our goal is to capitalize on opportunities while focusing on consistent, absolute returns. We believe our foundation of event-driven investing generates a reliable source of return in a variety of market environments. In addition to this core event-driven strategy, we constantly look for exceptional value investments where securities are trading at substantial disconnects to our assessment of intrinsic value. We believe this combination of event-driven and value-oriented investing allows us to generate strong risk-adjusted returns for our investors.
