Prior to investing we try to 'kill' the potential investment by running it through the 90 item checklist that is based on past mistakes of Buffett and peers.
San Francisco, California (PRWEB) November 12, 2013
Brar Investment Capital LLC today announced launch of the Brar Investment Fund LP, whose investment strategy focuses on using an extensive checklist which is based on learning from past mistakes of great investors such as Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger, Seth Klarman, Peter Lynch, Bruce Berkowitz, and others.
“Prior to investing, we try to ’kill‘ the potential investment by running it through a 90 item investment checklist that is based on learning from the mistakes of great value-oriented investors such as Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger, Bruce Berkowitz, Seth Klarman, Mohnish Pabrai, Peter Lynch and more. This helps to rationalize our decision making and reduce risk,” said Pope Brar, Managing Partner and Founder of Brar Investment Capital LLC.
Brar is best known for his “go against the grain” views. He held defensive names prior to the 2009 crisis, then subsequently purchased homebuilding and banking stocks for the rebound.
Brar Investment Fund LP will be available to accredited and qualified investors starting November 20, 2013.
The fund, managed by Bhupinder "Pope" Brar, will be supported by a team that includes a board of directors who average over 20 years of professional investing experience. In addition, the fund will be supported by a separate team of advisors with expertise in investments, operations, marketing, and technology. The fund prides itself on having a transparent, non-bureaucratic structure, along with a distinctive investment process.
“Our unique investment methodology focuses on four pillars of our margin of safety analysis (SAVR):
1. Sustainability of the Business Model
2. Accountability of the Management
3. Value of the Investment
4. Risk Factors
To avoid the permanent loss of capital is our primary concern,” stated Pope Brar.
The fund is suited for investors looking for capital appreciation through a concentrated portfolio of value oriented and special situation investments such as spin-offs, post-bankruptcy listings, restructurings, and rights offerings.
“In addition to reducing risk, investors are looking to grow their capital on an absolute basis and want to avoid investing in larger funds that closely track their benchmarks and deliver miniscule returns. One of the best ways to appreciate capital is by investing in a fund that concentrates holdings in a few names and reduces risk by continuously stress testing its investments by studying the mistakes of history’s greatest investors. Idea number 50 is unlikely to add more value than idea 20,” said Brar.
