Voce Capital Management (VCM) focuses on taking significant, actively managed equity positions in a limited number of publicly-traded US companies they believe are undervalued (or in the case of short investments, overvalued) or whose market valuation does not reflect the company's intrinsic value or true potential. VCM employs primary, proprietary research to identify companies whose current valuation is (or in the case of short investments, is likely to become or should be) impacted by some or all of the following: capital misallocation, managerial deficiencies, operational underperformance, governance dysfunction and/or strategic issues of scale or scope. The firm invests in companies which they believe the catalyst to address such issues is identified and actionable. VCM may attempt to engage in active and substantive dialog with the management, board of directors, advisors and other shareholders of such companies, and the investing public, to effect changes they believe will address the company's issues and narrow the valuation discrepancy. The firm focuses primarily on small-cap companies (generally with $100 million to $4.5 billion in equity market capitalization).
