Based in Los Angeles, California, Tradewinds Global Investors, LLC is a dedicated global investment management firm seeking to generate long-term performance by capitalizing on market inefficiencies.
Tradewinds has about 80 employees, of which 14 are investment analysts who identify the most compelling worldwide investment opportunities through diligent analysis. These analysts share their global expertise in daily investment team meetings that serve as a forum for idea generation, due diligence and collaboration. With a deep understanding of global industry and sector fundamentals, Tradewinds seeks to identify hidden investment opportunities for investors.
Markets are not always efficient. Tradewinds investment analysts believe it is possible to buy companies for less than their intrinsic worth. By investing in undervalued companies, they can create value and outperform the markets. Tradewinds analysts maintain a consistent philosophy throughout their methodology – that value is a prerequisite, not a style. They identify value today, not what it will be in the future.
Assets under management as at March 31, 2011 is in excess of US$37 billion.
