The CECM investment approach emphasizes exhaustive due diligence and primary research with an eye towards multi-year investment horizons. We take meaningful positions in our best ideas and believe our mindset resembles that of an opportunistic businessperson’s. We typically focus our efforts on the small cap space because we believe that is where greater price / value discrepancies can be found.
CEF employs a concentrated portfolio which typically consists of 10 – 15 equity longs and targets opportunistic company-specific shorts for absolute profits only. The fund may use options and index or industry-specific ETF hedges primarily in efforts to protect capital. The fund typically targets net exposures that range from 60% – 90%.
We seek to invest with quality management teams in businesses with durable moats and reasonably forecastable expected future cash flows. We are generalists with a focus on the consumer, media, technology and industrial verticals.
