Investment Approach


Altair’s goal in investing is asymmetry: to expose portfolios to return in a way that doesn’t expose them commensurately to risk, and to participate in gains when the market rises to a greater extent then we participate in losses when it falls.

  • Search for securities that trade at a meaningful discount to underlying value

  • Portfolios adapt to changing market conditions to meet objectives

  • Select securities that can provide alpha due to a catalyst

  • Ability to add value through actively managing positions and exposures

  • Focus on investment that others aren’t following or are too big to access

  • Manage risk at the portfolio level and the security level to protect against large draw-downs
