Investment Team

Our analysts are responsible for finding needles in the haystack. They sift through thousands of publicly traded companies looking for undervalued equity opportunities or income generating assets. Closely monitoring the macro-economic trends, our analysts perform comprehensive due diligence on specific companies and sectors, tracking a series of financial and business metrics before a position is added to or sold from your portfolio.
