Our investment philosophy

From the more traditional fundamental approach to the newer quantitative/computer models/Artificial Intelligence based algorithms, our dedicated investment team uses both approaches together to generate superior returns with lower volatility and a high Sharpe ratio.

Anaconda harnesses value from the energy market as it moves from the heritage oil and gas industries to the new renewable sector. This dual approach is mirrored in our investment strategy that focusses more on companies in active transition enjoying the growth rate of the renewable spectrum whilst being valued as depressed multiples of the oil and gas markets.

Adding artificial intelligence based quantitative analysis to fundamental research combines the best of both worlds leading to superior returns.

“We do not use one to the exclusion of the other, we use both together to make a more powerful decision and allow us to take bigger positions whilst reducing the volatility and risk of our funds”

For instance, we invest across the whole value chain of each renewable segment, from copper and rare earth miners to electrical cable producers, from solar panels and polysilicon wafers manufacturers to solar farms, from dredging and wind tower foundation companies to wind tower installation vessels and finally offshore wind farms.

We invest heavily in the former oil and gas offshore engineers that now build and service offshore wind farms, carbon capture mechanisms or green hydrogen electrolysers.
