Praesidium strives to create value by (i) taking ownership stakes in public companies it believes are undervalued, overlooked and off the radar of most other investors and by (ii) working closely with the management teams and boards of those companies in an effort to create and maximize value for shareholders – all underpinned by a rigorous and proprietary fundamental research process.

The Praesidium Strategic Opportunities Strategy, incepted in March 2008, holds ownership stakes in approximately 12-15 publicly listed companies for multi-year investment periods.

The strategy’s idea generation process focuses on examining inefficient areas of the market in an effort to uncover high quality businesses that are trading at a significant discount to their intrinsic value.

Investment decisions are based on a well-established, rigorous and proprietary research process that entails extensive, multi-month fundamental analysis in order to build a deep understanding of the long-term economics of a company’s business.

Driven by its significant research and deep knowledge of each company, Praesidium takes a hands-on, constructive approach and works closely with company management and boards in an effort to create and maximize value for shareholders, similar to that of a private equity investment approach, but in the public market.
