Kerrisdale Capital focuses on make value-oriented investments in public securities. The firm's investment philosophy is based on the belief that superior investment results over multi-year holding periods can be produced by in-depth fundamental research into asset valuation and by viewing risk as the permanent loss of capital rather than short term measures of variation relative to a particular market index. When not fully invested, Kerrisdale may maintain client assets in cash or other liquid instruments having shorter-term maturities. They expect their most common investment asset class to be equity and debt securities and options, but Kerrisdale has the ability to and will invest in private, unregistered and non-publicly traded securities. Issuers may be US-based or foreign-based. The firm may invest in other asset classes as opportunities arise and is not limited in their mandate as to what asset classes they may invest in. Kerrisdale emphasizes valuation in their decision making, which typically leads to several general investment types. With respect to companies, as well as many other assets, valuation is determined by estimating the discounted present value of the future cash flows of the company or asset, comparing multiples of earnings and cash flows to comparable companies, calculating replacement costs and utilizing numerous other valuation techniques.
