Waycross Partners was founded in 2005 by Benjamin Thomas. Prior to founding Waycross Partners, Ben and several key members of the investment team worked together at INVESCO, an institutional asset management firm that managed core equity portfolios.
Waycross was founded on the simple idea that opportunities for active management were more abundant when an investor is able to take either side of an investment and is not constrained to only purchases on the long side. Additionally, long/short equity can enjoy the benefits of equity investing, while limiting potentially harmful side effects, such as high volatility and large capital drawdowns.
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.
