The Adviser’s investment strategy seeks to provide attractive risk-adjusted returns by employing a concentrated, value-oriented long/short investment strategy with the willingness to use activism.

Generally, the Adviser’s investment strategy focuses on securities that have market capitalizations in excess of $1 billion and daily trading volume in excess of $5 million.

Methods of Analysis

In addition, Sachem Heads methods of analysis include:

The Adviser generally seeks to manage long portfolios along three themes: (i) assets acquired at a discount to fair value where the Adviser will work to surface value (“activist investing”), (ii) assets acquired at a discount to fair value with an embedded catalyst and (iii) high quality businesses purchased at discounted prices. The Adviser will generally have a multi-year view of potential value creation in a given investment.

The short portfolios managed by the Adviser will generally be comprised of: (i) standalone “alpha shorts” of businesses perceived to be overvalued and facing secular or structural challenges or using aggressive or misleading accounting, (ii) sector hedges designed to mitigate potential excessive sector exposure, and (iii) broader equity or credit market hedges.
