Effects Investments LLC invests in companies we believe to be financially strong and flexible. It is important to us that these companies not be reliant on capital markets to execute their business plan. We seek financial strength as evidenced by:
- Internally generated discretionary cash flow
- Excess working capital
- Organic revenue growth
We believe there is no substitute for knowing the management of the companies in which we invest our clients’ assets. It is critical that management be experienced. We visit with management teams and evaluate their facilities on a regular basis. Were they able to maintain their focus on long-term goals while moving through current conditions? In brief, we look for management that is:
- Forward thinking
- Focused on measurable goals
- Execution oriented
Our portfolio companies distinguish themselves by the product(s) or service(s) they offer and are at a point in their life cycle when they are not readily recognized or rewarded in the marketplace. The primary competition for these entities is often a division or subsidiary of a large public company or a private company.
By means of this video we give you a quick glance on the asset management services of Effects Investment LLC. We manage our clients assets as if it were our own, always chosing the best option and delivering clear return on investment.
“Transparency means that our clients know all about our research, methodology and risk allocation before as well as after investing.
Liquidity gives our clients the assurance of knowing that they can move in and out of our funds on a daily basis, and that our investments are closely monitored to satisfy this requirement.”
We rely on proprietary, bottom-up, on-site research to identify companies around the world that are attractively valued and stable.
We believe that there is little substitute for critical reasoning, attention to detail, revealing query, hard work, and patience.
People Driven Culture
Our greatest assets are our people, so we believe that excellent execution and a healthy culture are inextricably linked.
