Investment Philosophy

We Believe

  • Pricing inefficiencies exist in small and mid cap companies.
  • A focus on high quality companies that are temporarily trading below historic averages, peer groups and private market values, with strong management and an identifiable catalyst for value realization provides us with alpha generating opportunities.
  • By building a portfolio of diversified, high quality stocks we can minimize and control risk.
