We operate a fundamental investment process rooted in proprietary consumer research, private equity like due diligence and bottom-up stock picking for both long and short opportunities.
Our addressable universe is comprised of consumer-centric global small / mid cap names. We identify opportunities via fundamental analysis (where we find deviations from intrinsic value) supported by in-house ‘democultural’ research (how is consumer behaviour changing and which companies are impacted).
