GCM's investment process focuses on deep, fundamental research and individual security selection primarily within equity and credit-oriented strategies. The firm employs a GARP investment approach that focuses on companies in stable industries, with recurring revenue streams or entrenched market positions. GCM may also focus on contrarian investments (cyclical or company specific). They often combine GARP and contrarian investing when a steady growth business emerges within a company as the dominant economic force over a more challenged business unit. GCM invests in stored or hidden value situations, where excess balance sheet capacity may be used to accelerate returns or where contractual rights or startup operations show no present value but may be significant drivers of value tomorrow. In addition to long equity investments, GCM commits significant capital to short equity positions. They look for companies whose industries face cyclical, transitory or secular headwinds, whose competitive position is likely to erode over the near- to medium-term, and companies whose liquidity profile will potentially create equity value impairment or cause future issuance of additional equity at lower prices. GCM may also maintain short positions in equity index futures or other index products to reduce net market risk. The firm also engages in long and short credit positions with emphasis on business or asset stability over growth. They may seek to reduce the risk through other hedges that protect the overall portfolio of the Funds, including interest rates, foreign currencies or sovereign, corporate or asset-backed credit spreads.
