At Activist Investing we look for “diamonds in the rough". Companies which have long lost favour in the eyes of Wall Street and drastically need a comeback. We seek to invest in companies for which we can actively work with management in order to restore much needed shareholder value.

In other investment scenarios, when management is already on the right track, we merely invest to join in for the ride. Although this investment strategy comes with substantial high risk, we believe that it can bear great reward. Through our meticulous Due Diligence process that is conducted on every potential investment, we feel that we can properly mitigate our risk.
