Whale Rock Capital Management focuses on sponsoring and managing pooled investment vehicles. They manage the Flagship Funds. The funds are designed to provide consistently superior, risk adjusted returns by investing both long and short in equity securities and related instruments of publicly-traded issuers, with a focus on issuers in the technology, media and telecommunication (TMT) sectors. The funds seek to invest in securities of companies located around the world, but generally have a significant US concentration. The funds' investment strategy includes using leverage from time to time in pursuit of additional return. The funds tends to have a net long bias.Whale Rock utilizes a fundamental, research driven approach designed to identify technological, social and economic trends that generate significant product cycles and industry inflection points and then analyze the sub-sectors and/or companies with the most exposure (both positive and negative) to these trends. Their investment strategy tends to be longer-term in nature. Once significant trends and inflection points are identified, they look for companies whose sales and profits will benefit from these trends and that have some of the following characteristics: strong business models and competitive advantages, underappreciated earnings power, reasonable valuations and good management.On the short side, Whale Rock looks for companies that will be negatively impacted by the identified trends and also have some of the following characteristics: weak business models, deteriorating competitive positions, unreasonable valuations (although this is rarely sufficient in its own right), over-hyped business opportunities and poor management. They are often attracted to other investment attributes, such as: turnarounds, management changes, value creating acquisitions, shareholder friendly capital structure actions, such as stock buybacks, and prudent use of leverage.
