Lansdowne is an active manager which aims to produce absolute returns while minimizing downside risk by combining quantitative models and fundamental research. Quant approaches are used for generating ideas, screening and ranking opportunities and providing disciplined decision-making. Fundamental research is added to incorporate non-quantitative elements, test degree of conviction and to assess deviations from trends.The firm typically invests in stocks of companies worth significantly more on a break-up valuation than their current trading value or which are disposing of pieces of the business which are destroying value. They are also interested in companies improving operating returns or which are improving financial returns through a more efficient use of the balance sheet and growth companies which have an ability to reinvest excess cash into the business.Lansdowne uses short sales as a means of creating investments, of hedging specific risks in long positions and as a means of reducing portfolio exposure if they are worried about external risks to the portfolio (such as rising interest rates or macro shocks). They will also hold stock specific shorts where the market capitalization is significantly higher than where they believe the true value of the company lies.
