Investment Philosophy

Alamar Capital Management strives to outperform the market on a risk adjusted and absolute basis over time. We believe the best way to do this is through a bottom up, long term, fundamental approach that identifies and invests in a broad range of companies in various industries across the overall economy.  We take a long term view and often hold companies in our portfolio for several years.

At Alamar we take a private equity approach to public security investing. With each individual security we purchase, we must first ask ourselves – Would we be willing, if given the chance, to buy the whole business? We answer this question by performing our own in house research, and not being reliant on outside sources, or typical Wall Street influences.

Our Equity strategy seeks to identify and invest in businesses that are undervalued, oftentimes, due to their underestimated long term growth prospects. Additionally, in isolated instances we will make opportunistic investments based on temporary market disruptions. Normally, an investment must meet at least two or more of the following criteria:  a Good Fundamental  Business, at an Attractive Valuation, with Solid Growth Prospects.
