Richie Capital Group seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation for our clients. To achieve this objective, we invest primarily in common stocks and other equity securities including preferred stocks, options, and other equity derivatives. RCG’s investment approach is equity oriented and reflects our belief that equity securities offer the best opportunity for significant long-term returns. Our investment strategy was developed through education and application over decades. Our core investment philosophy is that successful investing is predicated on owning high quality companies with demonstrable records of growing shareholder value and, over the long run, the financial and operating performance of such companies will drive stock price appreciation.
The foundation of our equity investment process is based upon constructing a portfolio of high quality companies with strong growth prospects selling at attractive valuations or high quality companies with more stable growth prospects that are selling at a discount to our assessment of intrinsic value. To that end, the Firm’s investment process contains elements of both “value” and “growth” styles. Ultimately, we seek to construct portfolios comprised of companies that, according to our estimations, are mis-priced in the market and sell at attractive absolute valuations or do not fully reflect the opportunity for long-term compounding returns. Our portfolios are concentrated, and we invest across all industries, sectors and market capitalizations to seek out the best investment opportunities where we find them. Our research process is bottom-up driven, in that we analyze each investment on its own merits. We focus on making investments in businesses (as opposed to stocks) with a view towards longer-term holdings as a means for wealth creation.
Our investment vehicles include a long-biased hedge fund and a long-only all-cap product, both of which follow the same fundamental investment process. The Richie Capital Group investment process was developed over multiple market cycles and has been validated since the launch of our strategies. Great investing is about process with the outcome being proven over time. We believe in our products and we invest alongside our clients ensuring that our incentives are aligned. We manage our client’s money as we would our own.
