Heartland Advisors is an active, value-based investor that aims to provide superior risk-adjusted returns and limit downside participation. The firm looks for under-researched, under-followed and under-valued securities of well-managed companies with strong balance sheets. They typically sell securities when they consider them to be overvalued relative to other investments. Portfolio managers and research analysts work side-by-side to apply a bottom-up approach that combines traditional fundamental analysis.

Lynrock Lake performs deep, fundamental analysis on companies and invests in the part (or in multiple parts) of the capital structure that it believes will provide the best risk/reward given its dual goals of capital preservation and upside optionality. It employs both long and short strategies that it believes will independently generate attractive risk-adjusted returns. The firm seeks to invest in portfolio companies over long time frames using a value-oriented framework and to increase position sizes meaningfully when it believes there is a catalyst in place to eliminate a significant disparity between current market value and its estimation of intrinsic value. The funds’ investments span across corporate credit, convertible, and equity securities.
