Albright Capital actively seeks to identify emerging market opportunities with the following criteria:
- Compelling themes and market inefficiencies
- Resolutions to social and economic problems
- Gaps in the market that can be filled by proven management teams and established business models
- Good companies in out of favor jurisdictions or confronting manageable stress
The research process is supported by continuous CIO-level proprietary research into the macro backdrop of ~15 to 20 countries, supplemented by steady, less frequent research into another ~20 countries. ASG’s local and global networks are also available, as needed, based on ACM pipeline developments. ASG’s views are invaluable as they are unburdened by the Wall Street consensus at any given point in time.
This continuous research means that Albright Capital is usually already well informed about the issues in any given jurisdiction and can move quickly when we see an interesting deal. As with all leading private investment firms, our deal leaders have a command of all the details of the given portfolio company and industry. At ACM, however, they are also supported by the full team, who provide a variety of perspectives, including a crucially important macro risk and opportunity overlay.
In addition, we conduct proprietary assessment/independent analysis of all risks, including political and currency risks and understand market sentiment and expectations at any given point in time, and have an ability to price any deal on the efficient frontier based on global comparables.
