Our Firm

A Tradition of Value

Perkins value-oriented approach is based on the belief that investing in a diversified portfolio of high-quality, yet undervalued stocks can lead to outperformance of a benchmark over time. We believe that by conducting rigorous downside analysis before determining upside potential, we are better able to identify companies with favorable reward-to-risk trade-offs over a full market cycle.

The Best Defense is a Good Defense

As defensive value specialists, we look to invest in high quality companies with strong management teams, stable balance sheets, and durable competitive advantages that are trading at attractive valuations. We seek to achieve excess returns over full market cycles, with less risk than our benchmark and peers as measured by standard deviation, beta and down market capture.
