Opportunistic Alpha Managed Account

Seeking Opportunity in Undervalued Business Models

Jump to a section

Overview

Client Commitment

A U.S.-centric equity portfolio, investing opportunistically in what we believe are mispriced business models, unconstrained by sector and with flexibility across market cap. Through deep fundamental analysis, we seek to identify misunderstood and underappreciated companies where we can invest with conviction to create long-term capital appreciation.

Why Invest in the Portfolio

    Thinking Independently

  1. Expressing differentiated views by applying autonomous thinking
  2. Multiple Avenues for Capital Appreciation

  3. Seeking to invest in companies where there is potential for both the free cash flow of the company and the stock multiple to grow over time
  4. Actively Different

  5. This concentrated portfolio seeks to outperform the benchmark over time by leveraging the best ideas of our global research team to identify stocks trading at a discount to their intrinsic value across style, sector and market cap
  6. Various Approaches to Investing

  7. Investing with conviction where we believe the market either misunderstands the business model, undervalues the company’s assets or underappreciates the company’s growth potential

Past performance cannot guarantee future results. Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal and fluctuation of value. Returns greater than one year are annualized. Returns are expressed in U.S. dollars. All returns reflect the reinvestment of dividends and other earnings.
*Pure gross performance results do not reflect the deduction of any trading costs, fees or expenses and returns will be reduced by such advisory fee and other contractual expenses as described in the individual contract and Form ADV Part 2A. Pure gross returns are supplemental to net returns.
Net returns are calculated by subtracting the highest applicable Managed Account fee (3.00% annually, or 0.25% monthly) from the pure gross composite return. The Managed Account fee includes all charges for trading costs, portfolio management, custody and other administrative fees. Actual fees may vary depending on, among other things, the applicable fee schedule and portfolio size. The fees are available on request and may be found in Form ADV Part 2A.
