Market Inefficiency & Capital Gaps
Identify investment opportunities and develop scalable themes in less efficient markets and/or where there is a favorable imbalance in the relative supply and demand for capital
Focus on drivers and catalysts to unlock or create value and optimize potential exit strategies
Seek opportunities to benefit from Värde’s established expertise and/or differentiated capabilities to unlock complexity in various forms while pricing correctly the inherent risk
Approach investing with flexible capital that allows Värde to operate across private and public assets and securities as well as secondary and primary markets
Seek to invest at a price that allows Värde to increase value while maintaining a strong focus on discount to fundamental value
Assess risk/reward holistically, searching not only for the best value in any market, but also in comparison with the opportunity set across the global Värde platform
