MALD, Concentrations on International Business & Environmental Policy

The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy (also referred to as The Fletcher School) at Tufts University is the oldest school in the United States dedicated solely to graduate studies in international affairs. Fletcher is regarded as one of the world's foremost schools of international relations. Every Fall, the school enrolls approximately 265 full-time students (excluding Ph.D. candidates not enrolled in courses.) The Fletcher School was founded in 1933 with the bequest of Austin Barclay Fletcher, who left over $3 million to Tufts University upon his death in 1923. A third of these funds were dedicated to a school of law and diplomacy. Fletcher did not have in mind a school "of the usual kind, which prepares men for admission to the bar and for the active practice of law." Instead, Fletcher envisioned "a school to prepare men for the diplomatic service and to teach such matters as come within the scope of foreign relations [which] embraces within it as a fundamental and thorough knowledge of the principles of international law upon which diplomacy is founded, although the profession of a diplomat carries with it also a knowledge of many things of a geographic and economic nature which affect relations between nations."

Career History
Managing Director
Current

Vilas Capital Management is a concentrated value investor. The firm seeks to generate long-term investment returns that exceed total stock market returns by a significant margin, net-of-fees. Their investment philosophy is based on the following beliefs: (1) that markets can misprice companies in the shorter term (2) that markets recognize and price fairly a company's value in the longer term (3) that to beat the market investments must be made in securities with the potential for higher returns and lower return volatility and (4) that concentrated portfolios are necessary to beat the total stock market.Vilas Capital Management seeks to identify and invest in the shares of underpriced companies and hold them until the market recognizes their underlying value. They look for companies that are operating in growing industries that have strong balance sheets, shareholder-oriented management teams and competitive product or service offerings. The firm then seeks to invest in these securities when they are selling at a significant discount to their estimate of the company's fair value. At the same time, if Vilas Capital Management identifies shares of companies they believe are extremely overpriced relative to their long-term prospects, they may sell those shares short as a way to increase fund holder returns and dampen portfolio volatility.Vilas Capital Management invests in concentrated portfolios. The firm's strategy is to buy equity in a limited number of undervalued companies. They focus on their best ideas, avoiding the distraction of owning more companies than they can effectively follow. Since the firm believes their holdings are already undervalued, they believe their concentrated portfolios offer a reduced downside risk to fund holders.
