Praesidium launched its Strategic Opportunities Strategy on March 1, 2008. The strategy is comprised of 10-15 high-quality companies. The firm’s private equity and owner-oriented investment approach to public markets, coupled with deep research, enables Praesidium to constructively engage management teams and boards of directors to help unlock hidden value.

Praesidium strives to build a competitive advantage at each stage of the investment process in order to generate superior long-term returns, while continuously focusing on protecting investor capital. Praesidium’s unique idea generation process is designed to search inefficient areas of the market uncovering “hidden gems” not closely followed by most Wall Street firms and the general investment community. The team then performs an intense, fundamental, grassroots research process on each potential investment to identify the key long-term business drivers of the company and its industry. Importantly, as a result of its deep understanding of each company in which it invests, Praesidium has a long history of effectively collaborating with the management teams and boards of its holdings to create and unlock shareholder value.
