SailingStone Capital Partners invests client assets primarily in accordance with their Natural Resources Strategy and/or their Natural Gas Strategy. The Natural Resources Strategy invests primarily in equity securities of issuers that the firm considers to be engaged principally in natural resources industries anywhere in the world. These portfolios typically hold a limited number of securities. SailingStone seeks to purchase securities in companies with these characteristics when SailingStone believes the price reflects a limited possibility of permanent capital impairment. SailingStone's Natural Gas Strategy invests in equity securities of companies that produce natural gas in North America or engage in natural gas-related businesses that may benefit from an improvement in long-term natural gas fundamentals. The strategy is concentrated around companies that the firm believes possess a combination of the three attributes required to generate excess returns in a commoditized industry: producing assets which sit at the bottom of a steeply sloped supply cost curve, highly capable management teams with a strong track record of prudent capital allocation and value creation, and a deep inventory of advantaged assets into which capital can be deployed at high rates of return.

Their investment strategies generally focus on an event or a catalyst that will move an equity price, an equity spread, a credit spread, or an implied volatility spread. Their investment strategies may include: merger arbitrage, catalyst-driven credit investing, special situation investing and distressed investing. Catalyst events may include mergers, acquisitions, spin-offs, carve-outs, tender offers, split-off exchange offers, share class spreads, re-organizations and corporate distress. Pentwater seeks to trade in all forms of the capital structure of companies involved in catalysts and events and to create the best risk/reward trade possible within the corporate capital structure. Pentwater attempt to limit risk through diversification and hedging. The firm may choose to take control positions in an attempt to create their own catalyst or event. In managing the fund's portfolio, Pentwater relies on fundamental analysis supplemented by quantitative analytics and portfolio management techniques. They take both long and short positions for their clients in a broad range of public and private debt securities, equity securities, options, derivatives and credit derivatives (including credit default swaps), trade claims, bank debt participations and other instruments.

Sandstorm Gold finances gold mining projects through an arrangement called gold streaming. A gold stream involves Sandstorm making an upfront payment to a mining partner that is in need of capital to build their mine, refinance their obligations, complete an acquisition or for various other reasons. In exchange for that upfront payment, Sandstorm receives a contract which stipulates the purchase of a certain percentage of the gold produced from the mine, for the life of the mine, at a fixed per unit cost. To give an example, one of Sandstorm’s gold streaming agreements is with a company called Mutiny Gold (ASX-MYG). Mutiny needed capital for the development of its Deflector project in Western Australia. Sandstorm provided US$38 million to Mutiny as an upfront cash payment and in return, received a gold streaming agreement to purchase 15% of the life of mine gold produced from Deflector at US$500 per ounce.
