The Baupost Group employs a value-oriented, multi-strategy investment approach that seeks to achieve good absolute returns on a long-term, risk-adjusted basis. The Baupost Partnerships seek to invest their capital so as to maximize total risk-adjusted pre-tax returns over an extended period of time. The Partnerships seek to invest in assets which are undervalued relative to their market price. The Partnerships invest, either directly or indirectly, in securities and other assets that have some or all of the following characteristics: (1) they are currently out-of-favor, but have good prospects (2) they sell at a significant discount to underlying economic value (3) they have catalysts in place for the realization of underlying value (4) they are highly complex (5) they are somewhat or highly illiquid and (6) they sell at prices below what would reasonably be expected due to market imperfections and inefficiencies, including but not limited to temporary supply demand imbalances, information gaps, and selling pressures.The Partnerships invest across a range of financial instruments, asset classes and geographic regions. Investments may include securities and and assets of all types, including, but not limited to, stock (common, preferred and convertible), warrants, options, swaps, trade claims, bank debt, bonds, other debt instruments including self-originated loans, currency, futures, derivatives, commodities, contract rights, royalty interests, non-US securities and other assets (including in emerging markets), structured investment vehicles, secured and unsecured instruments, ABS, CMBS, RMBS, real estate and related instruments, other complex financial instruments and rights and distressed assets.
