Bumbershoot Holdings L.P. is a private investment partnership launched in Oct-2015.
The partnership uses a fundamental investment strategy as a “quality over quantity” approach to identifying and evaluating great businesses. It primarily invests in small- and mid- capitalization public companies which are headquartered in the U.S. and listed on a domestic exchange. It maintains a relatively concentrated portfolio with approximately 60%-75% of assets in its top-15 holdings. The partnership utilizes low levels of leverage and hedges net long exposure through various short positions and equity derivatives, as dictated by overall market conditions.
Belgian analyst with a long time horizon. I started stock picking at 19, about 10 years ago when I was completing electrical engineering studies. Generalist. I prefer fishing in out-of-favor sectors and/or geographies.
Not only do those ponds have lower valuations in aggregate, they tend to be less efficient in the cross-section as well. This double advantage makes it great for stock pickers.
I intend to write-up small caps and special situations in out of favor geographies.
