Investment Process

Focuses on Bottom-Up Relative Value Opportunities

The team attempts to exploit inefficiencies in the marketplace through relative valuations based on:

Discounted Cash Flow

  • Asset-by-asset, sum-of-the-parts methodology
  • Allows us to compare like assets across geographies
    • Credit Default Swaps (CDS) spread
    • Sovereign debt yields
    • Regulatory trends

Other Incorporated Valuation Metrics:
  • A company’s multiple vs. its historical trading range
  • A company’s premium/discount vs. a carefully defined peer group
Comparative Net Asset Value
  • Based on private market transactions
Enterprise Value (EV) / EBITDA
  • A company’s multiple vs. its historical trading range
  • A company’s premium/discount vs. a carefully defined peer group
  • Peer groups based on stock correlation analysis as well as asset-type similarity
