Having run since June 2010, the original hedge fund strategy uses bottom-up fundamental stock selection with a focus on capital preservation.
The strategy is made up of six steps: identify candidates; quantify the opportunity; isolate the desired risk; build strategies; transact and monitor, and monetise value.
“We continuously screen globally for undervalued companies that have improving or high and sustainable financial productivity,” said Malan.
“Our aim is to give our clients exposure to differentiated and often under-researched investments that offer the best asymmetric risk/reward outcomes.
“Yet we also have to be attuned to exogenous developments and changes in market sentiment which often present as many opportunities as they do challenges.”
