Philadelphia Financial Management of San Francisco (PFMSF) manages private investment funds that seek to maximize total returns by investing primarily in the financial service industry. The funds' assets predominantly (but not exclusively) are invested in U.S. and Canadian publicly-traded securities of finance companies including: banks, thrifts, brokers, asset managers, insurance, mortgage, specialty finance, REITs, homebuilders, financial technology, and other financial intermediaries. Although their focus is on the financial sector, PFMSF may invest a portion of the funds' assets in other sectors in which they have investment experience, such as the automotive sector. The firm may sell securities short, engage in some short-term trading, and may invest and trade in options, other derivatives and other instruments. They take long positions primarily in undervalued small- to medium-sized companies they believe offer attractive investment opportunities while shorting those with deteriorating fundamentals, questionable accounting practices, or flawed business models. The funds may use leverage and stock options in attempting to hedge positions and enhance returns. The funds may invest in any type of instrument, including private equity, distressed debt or securities of financial service companies. While the funds may invest throughout the world, typically less than 15% of a fund's assets is invested in investments other than U.S. securities, Canadian securities and securities traded on the London Stock Exchange or Euronext.
