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.

As Warren Buffett once said, “fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful.”

We invest in distressed assets from large parent companies on the private side in need of restructuring. Before any investment is made, our team assesses the division's operations, including its management team, employees, processes, and systems. Identify areas of inefficiency or weakness that may require restructuring or investment. 

After acquiring the company, our main objective is to take an active role in the company's operations or working with management to implement changes that can improve the company's performance.
