From June 9 to 10, Brar Investment Capital, LLC, an emerging investment fund manager that aims to invest in deeply mispriced equities, attended the Emerging Managers Summit 2014 in Chicago, hosted by Opal Financial. Brar Investment Capital's Managing Partner, Pope Brar, presented the firm’s investment strategy and discussed benefits offered by emerging investment fund managers over their larger counterparts.

"Good ideas don’t come around often. Investors want strategies that will produce over the long term."

“Research provides evidence that emerging fund managers tend to outperform their larger peers, especially in the early years. Performance tends to deteriorate as the assets grow and the funds lose their flexibility to invest in a wider universe of investments. The trend in asset flows is starting to favor emerging managers who offer a robust strategy partly driven by performance and accountability,” stated Pope Brar.

The Emerging Managers Summit was held from June 9 to 10 at the Swissotel in Chicago, IL. The summit featured participants such as pension plans, family offices, endowments, foundations, and consultants.

Brar is best known for his “go against the grain” views and believes that a basket of a few deeply discounted and well-researched equities has the potential to deliver satisfying returns in the long term. He also developed a proprietary checklist of 90 items derived from past mistakes of great investors such as Charlie Munger, Warren Buffett, Seth Klarman, Peter Lynch, and more. The checklist tries to “destroy” the company’s business model and potentially reduces risk when investing in a concentrated portfolio.

“Good ideas do not come around often. The best in the investment business wait for the fat pitch and then try to deliver a homerun. Investors are looking to grow their capital on an absolute basis and want to invest in strategies that will produce over the long term. One of the best ways to appreciate capital is by investing in a strategy that concentrates holdings in a few well-researched names and reduces risk by continuously testing its investments. Idea number 40 is unlikely to add more value than idea 10,” said Brar.
