WHAT WE DO


INVESTMENT SOLUTIONS
Wincrest Contraria Fund
  • Global long/short best ideas hedge fund
Energy Transition Fund
  • ESG long only fund with private co-investment opportunities
Wincrest Ventures
  • Special purpose companies for bespoke early stage & private market opportunities

HOW WE DO IT


  • We believe adopting a private market approach to the public equity markets is the best way to generate absolute returns.
  • On the long side of the portfolio, we seek mispriced, not mismanaged companies, where we have a strong alignment of interest with the founders / management teams, impeccable balance sheets, deep moats and an ROE > WACC
  • On the short side of the portfolio, we focus on finding single stock short ideas characterized by debt, denial and disruption
  • We believe the energy transition is our generation's "good rush" and that decarbonization is the investment opportunity of the decade
  • We believe in ESG2.0, which is about accountability and authenticity. That is the portfolio that sits at the intersection of profit and purpose.
  • Deep ESG is deep value and deeply impactful
  • We are "opportunivores"
  • If an outstanding investment does not fit the liquidity profile of our funds, we have the ability to offer it to our investors via Wincrest Ventures

WHO WE DO IT FOR


  • We eat our own cooking
    • Just as we seek to invest in companies with management teams that think and act like owners, internally, we live that value.
    • We invest in all of our own strategies and investment opportunities
    • Compensation in tied to performance
    • External investors include pension plans, accredited investors and family offices
