INVESTMENT STRATEGY

 

While BAM invests across market capitalization/sectors, it typically specializes in the media/telecom, financial service and consumer discretionary sectors.  BAM is comfortable owning names that are underfollowed or underowned because of perceived complexity issues.  BAM typically focuses on investing opportunities and special situations with documented inefficiencies including spinoffs, bank/thrift conversions and the Liberty Media complex.

Brennan has closely followed the Liberty Media complex for the past 15 years and subsequent to recent selected Liberty weakness, BAM has meaningfully increased its exposure to multiple names within the Liberty family.  While the exact targeted return will vary by investment, BAM typically seeks securities offering 15-20+% internal rate of returns (IRRs).
