Contrarius Investment Management Ltd. is an active, contrarian manager which aims to create long-term wealth for clients by buying stocks they believe are trading below their intrinsic value and which are attractive relative to other opportunities. They follow a valuation-based investment approach, performing proprietary bottom-up research which seeks to determine the intrinsic value of an investment. The firm sells stocks when they believe they have reached their underlying intrinsic value or when they are less attractive than other opportunities, aiming to avoid the permanent loss which can result from continuing to hold a stock that ultimately corrects to fair value. Contrarius takes a long-term approach to investing, with a typical investment horizon of four years, believing that the ability to outperform in the long-term is largely determined by focusing on the long-term value of a business rather than short-term news flow.

Extending beyond the traditional approach to credit, they take an active approach at two levels of its investment process: position-level trade structuring and portfolio-level trading. Antara Capital seeks to balance the two with stringent risk management, emphasizing capital preservation. The firm’s fund invests opportunistically across the capital structure in catalyst driven situations, with a focus on mid-cap and select small/large-cap companies.
