Our Strategies

At Waycross Partners, we believe that successful investing is a balance between conviction and discipline. Conviction is achieved through our Key Factor Approach to fundamental analysis, which keeps us focused on only the most critical drivers to a company’s earnings.  A disciplined approach to risk management is embedded within our investment process as we seek to understand, monitor, and limit downside protection. This investment philosophy represents the guiding principles that shape our investment decision making process through each of our three strategies.  

Waycross Long/Short Equity Strategy

Our flagship strategy was launched in 2005. The investment objective is to produce strong risk-adjusted returns with lower volatility than the overall equity markets. Our investment process leads us to seek out both long and short opportunities. The strategy typically targets gross long exposure between 40-60%. Net market exposure typically ranged from 40% to 60%. The resulting portfolio has a low correlation to the large cap equity markets.

    Waycross Long/Short Opportunity Strategy

    This strategy was launched in 2013. Similar to our flagship strategy, the investment objective is to generate superior, risk-adjusted returns over time while maintaining a low correlation to large cap equities. Our investment process leads us to seek out both long and short opportunities. The strategy targets a net market exposure in the range of 60-80%, but it can range from 0-100%, with a maximum gross exposure (longs plus shorts) of 150%. The resulting portfolio is positions to participate in equity market up-trends, but maintains downside protection.

      Waycross Growth Strategy

      In 2011, this strategy was launched. The objective is to outperform the S&P 500 index over a full market cycle. Our approach to long-only investment management remains focused on extensive, bottom-up company research. We emphasize companies that are either leaders in their respective industries or are disrupting their industries through innovation. The strategy maintains a higher market exposure range of 95-100% investment across 25-35 holdings. To better serve our clients’ needs, the strategy can be customized to adhere with specific guidelines and tax considerations.
