Hound Partners' advisory services focused on managing long and short portfolios primarily in equity and equity-related instruments. There will be both long-term and short-term investments. The firm's investment process and philosophy is value-oriented and powered by very deep fundamental research. They believe that exceptional investment ideas are scarce and concentrate the portfolio in a small number of their best ideas. Hound Partners feels that tolerating volatile investments in the portfolio increases opportunity. The also believe that size is the enemy of performance and, thus, they do not seek to be a multi-billion dollar fund. This approach allows them to invest in smaller, less efficient markets. Hound Partners typically seeks to create a core portfolio of around 20 to 30 longs and 30 to 40 shorts. They will establish a new position when the investment process generates a compelling idea. The firm often starts with a small position and adds to it as their conviction increases or as additional information comes to their attention, Hound Partners will exit a position when: (1) the position has been proven right and it is time to redeploy the capital (2) the position was wrong (3) they identify better ideas (4) the position becomes too large a portion of the portfolio or (5) it is distracting to the firm's portfolio management process.
