Principal Investment philosophy
Orchard’s Opportunistic Small Cap Strategies builds upon a core philosophy:
''Proprietary knowledge, not excess risk, drives excess returns‘’
Orchard uses proprietary knowledge to create the best possible estimate of intrinsic value and strives to generate excess returns by investing at what they consider a significant discount to intrinsic value.
Once Orchard has identified sources of value or opportunities for value creation, they select investments with one or more catalysts that should lead to value realization and will engage management & shareholders for constructive change.
