Stonepine Capital Management focuses primarily, but not exclusively, on equity and equity-related securities in US publicly healthcare companies. The firm seeks to invest in companies whose valuations reflect a material discount to their fundamental value in the healthcare space. Stonepine typically prefers to invest in companies at a price reflecting a discount to current commercial and financial assets alone.The Stonepine Funds' investment objective is to achieve superior absolute returns while preserving capital. They have formed Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) whose investment objective may differ because these investments tend to be more concentrated than the Stonepine Funds. Stonepine seeks to achieve their investment objective primarily by investing assets in publicly traded healthcare companies. Stonepine's investment focus is companies with commercial stage products generating sustainable revenue and companies with substantial financial assets (such as cash and royalty income streams).

The Ontario Teachers Pension Plan Board's (OTPP) investments are well-diversified across a mix of public and private Canadian and non-Canadian equities, inflation-sensitive investments, fixed-income securities and real assets (real estate and infrastructure). Risk is managed carefully to reflect the plan's maturity and to decrease risk tolerance, with emphasis on outperforming the markets in which they invest. OTPP's public equity investments include stock market indices, actively managed portfolios, relationship investing and long-term equities. They use indexed equity portfolios to maintain their asset-mix policy weighting. They also manage quant portfolios that invest in global stocks based on enhanced models that seek to identify strategies and stocks with the potential to outperform relevant indices. For equity index funds, OTPP invests entirely in equity-based derivatives. OTPP's actively managed equity investments include both internally and externally managed portfolios. The firm's internally managed active equity investments are selected using bottom-up analysis to identify and invest in undervalued stocks. The majority of their investments in public companies are managed internally. OTPP's fixed-income investments include core portfolios of Canadian bonds, Ontario debentures, provincial bonds, real-return bonds and inflation-linked bonds. OTPP gains exposure to energy, metals and agricultural products through a well-known commodities index. They invest in commodities as a hedge against the cost of paying inflation-protected pensions.
