SCM employs a fundamentals-based, value-driven investment approach across four strategies: a long-short equity strategy managed with the discipline of market neutrality, a long-short equity strategy managed with net long exposure, a long-only equity strategy and a long-short health care focused strategy. The firm seeks to identify investments primarily in publicly-traded equities (on both US and non-US exchanges), including IPOs, but may also include options, derivatives and bonds that they believe will increase in value (or at least maintain their value) even in a falling market, and conversely to identify and sell short stocks that they believe will drop in value (or at least under-perform) regardless of the industry and the market's overall direction. The long portfolio focuses on dynamic companies protected by low valuations relative to free cash flow, strong cash positions or valuable intellectual property and sensible business models. The short portfolio selects companies that SCM determines are not only overvalued, but also fundamentally flawed because of the poor prospects of their products or services. The research process combines examining publicly available financial data and conducting in-depth proprietary field research.

Perceptive Advisors focuses on investment opportunities in healthcare, with an emphasis on biotechnology. The firm believes that significant opportunities exist in biotechnology due to pervasive underlying market inefficiencies and volatility. Perceptive Advisors advises two separate master-feeder private fund structures.The Perceptive Life Sciences Funds invest in the equities of growth healthcare companies and value plays, with an emphasis on biotechnology. Perceptive Advisors seeks to identify opportunities to exploit relative value disparities and inefficiencies that exist on both the long and short side of the market. They focus on a universe of about 300 smaller, more inefficiently priced companies which are underfollowed by Wall Street biotechnology analysts. Hedging strategies using long and short equity positions, equity options, and index options are used in an attempt to reduce and control risk.The Perceptive Credit Opportunity Fund seeks to achieve superior risk-adjusted returns by investing in senior secured loans and other debt and debt-related instruments issued by small- and mid-cap publicly traded companies and privately-held emerging growth companies primarily in the healthcare and related industries. The fund's investments may be originated by the fund or in collaboration with a syndicate of other credit investors. Most of the fund's investments will be structured as directly originated loans to healthcare companies.Perceptive Advisors also advises two separate accounts. The investment strategies of the separate accounts are substantially similar to those of the Perceptive Life Sciences Fund, though the separate accounts may take more concentrated positions and use a higher degree of leverage.
