Our Active Value investment approach is crafted specifically for today`s treacherous sideways markets

We patiently seek out stocks that are significantly, if not ridiculously, undervalued
Our clients are our partners, they are treated as such with complete transparency
We eat our own cooking. Our portfolio managers and their families own the same stocks as our clients

Vitaliy Katsenelson, our CIO, has laid out his thesis on sideways markets in two books, Active Value Investing (Wiley, 2007) and The Little Book of Sideways Markets (Wiley, 2010).
