About Titan Opportunities

Titan Opportunities is our U.S. small/mid cap growth strategy. It seeks to invest in equities of market-leading U.S.-based companies under $10B in market capitalization. The objective is to outperform the Russell 2000 over a 3-5 year horizon.

The Opportunities investment process involves deep fundamental research into a company’s operating and financial prospects. The strategy aims to identify companies with durable competitive advantages, strong growth prospects, excellent leadership teams, and attractive valuations. The resulting portfolio consists of ~15-25 long positions, plus a personalized hedge based on each client’s individual risk tolerance, which aims to reduce market exposure during downturns.

The Opportunities portfolio is monitored daily and updated by the Portfolio Manager and Investment Team based on the prospective risk/reward of each holding compared to alternatives in the strategy’s investable universe.

Opportunities is focused on smaller, unique U.S. businesses that we believe are undervalued, with asymmetric upside, and the potential to be the next crop of shining stars.

Process

Idea Generation

Opportunities’ investable universe includes all U.S.-based stocks with up to $10B market capitalization (with some exceptions). To identify potential portfolio candidates, the Investment Team’s Analysts employ quantitative and qualitative research across companies in the investable universe. This research includes filtering by financial metrics we believe are leading indicators of business quality, reading through company filings and transcripts, networking with industry participants, and more.

Fundamental Research

Once a potential portfolio candidate is identified, the Investment Team conducts bottoms-up fundamental research to determine if the business has durable competitive advantages, strong growth prospects and unit economics, and solid management. This process consists of reading the last few years’ company filings, earnings transcripts, management presentations, and sell-side research to understand how the company and industry operate. Often it involves calls or meetings with management teams, company shareholders, and industry professionals to try to validate the company’s candidacy in the Opportunities portfolio. Detailed analysis is also conducted on company’s historical financial statements to understand operating trends.

Valuation

Once the Investment Team has validated the company’s competitive advantages, growth prospects, and management quality, they analyze the stock’s absolute and relative valuation vs. their estimate of its long-run intrinsic value. The team targets a +15% minimum annualized return over a 3-year period for each Opportunities holding, assuming little/no multiple expansion.

Portfolio Management

Once a company makes it into the Opportunities portfolio, the Portfolio Manager and Analysts monitor the position daily alongside the other holdings, watching for signposts that their thesis is playing out (or not). Typically the ~15-25 Opportunities positions are conviction weighted with fairly low annual turnover and occasional rebalancing when the weights deviate widely. Otherwise, positions are held for the long term and only exited/changed when the investment thesis has played out, has deteriorated, or has been eclipsed by a much more attractive risk/reward opportunity in another stock.
