Norrep Capital Management has expertise in the energy sector and is widely known for their Flow-Through Limited Partnerships. The firm seeks to design products that can take advantage of market inefficiencies and that are difficult for investors to do on their own. Their investment solutions can be divided into a “wealth creation” arm and a “wealth preservation” arm. Norrep's suite of wealth creation products includes two Canadian small-cap funds, a micro-cap fund, Global, U.S. and Canadian all-cap funds, an energy fund, and a tactical balanced fund. Their wealth preservation side includes a global equity balanced fund, a Canadian equity balanced fund, a high yield fund and a short-term income fund. The firm also manages a market neutral income fund and a fund-of-funds. Norrep's investment process is based on a highly disciplined blend of fundamental and quantitative research. The firm focuses on optimizing such factors as return on equity, price to earnings, cash flow to debt, and yield that have historically led to outperformance over reasonable time periods. As value managers, Norrep seeks to limit downside when compared to their peers and benchmarks by avoiding speculative investments and remaining disciplined on how much they pay for a particular security.
