Although they hope to generate competitive returns on investment for the funds, Steadfast emphasizes the preservation of capital and the avoidance of large draw-downs, especially in declining markets. The firm believes that a disciplined approach based on intensive research, a focus on the direction of underlying company fundamentals, and portfolio diversification can provide attractive returns on capital without undue risk to principal.

The firm believes that non-equity securities and derivatives are often less volatile instruments and may present a more attractive risk/reward profile than simply investing in the common stock. They generally also use derivatives for hedging purposes.Investments are not confined to any particular approach or industry and may include: long or short positions in publicly-traded or privately issued or negotiated common stocks, preferred stocks, stock warrants and rights, corporate debt, bonds, notes or other debentures or debt participations, convertible securities, options (purchased or written), on any type of security, commodity or derivative, commodities, futures contracts, forward contracts (including, withoutlimitation, currency forward contracts), currencies and other derivative investments, swaps (including, without limitation, credit default swaps), partnership interests, opportunities in real estate, contract rights, cash and other securities or other financial instruments, including those of investment companies, and other asset classes, such as hard assets.
