Kingdon Capital Management aims to achieve attractive risk-adjusted returns across all market cycles. They adhere to a research driven process, investing across geographies, industries and asset classes to find the best use of capital. The firm offers three investment strategies: a global long/short equity strategy (Flagship Strategy), Lyxor/Kingdon global long-short equity strategy (Lyxor/Kingdon Strategy), and a non-discretionary investment advisory service regarding alternative investment opportunities (the Advisory Strategy). The Flagship Strategy focuses primarily on liquid, global equities with opportunistic allocations to credit, government securities, commodities and currencies. It invests globally (developed and emerging markets) and is diversified with limited leverage and active exposure management. In selecting investments, an emphasis is put on both individual security selection (bottom-up approach) and general economic analysis (top-down approach). The Lyxor/Kingdon Strategy employs the same strategy as the Flagship Strategy except this strategy does not invest in credit instruments, commodities and private equity. The Advisory Strategy focuses on sourcing alternative investment ideas, performing due diligence on potential investment opportunities, and recommending investments in third-party and/or Kingdon-sponsored pooled investment funds and vehicles, and direct deals.
