Investment Philosophy and Approach

The Zazove investment philosophy has evolved from 40 years of managing convertible securities. The lessons learned over nearly a half-century form the foundation of our approach to investing. The basic tenets of our philosophy and investment approach are:

Equity Market Returns Capturing the majority of equity market advances helps build capital over time
Preservation of Capital Avoiding substantial declines during market downturns can lead to long-term outperformance
Not Reliant on Forecasting Utilize a disciplined, repeatable, quantitative investment methodology that does not rely on price forecasting or market timing
Diversification Proper diversification is particularly important given the firm’s quantitative approach, emphasis on preservation of capital, and non-reliance on forecasting
Long-term approach The Zazove investment approach has been successful over numerous market cycles and a wide variety of economic conditions
