Foundry Partners, LLC is a boutique asset management company that specializes in active management and delivering positive risk adjusted returns for our clients. Although we currently service a variety of institutional and public clients, our name pays homage to our investment philosophy and the types of clients we built our roots on. Similar to an actual foundry, our portfolio managers look to take raw assets and mold them into a comprehensive and refined portfolio. Like the men and women who work hard on those foundry floors, we are always working to build a solid investment foundation for our clients.
Our value strategies are built on the foundation of merging fundamental analysis with the indication of a positive catalyst. We feel this approach helps us identify statistically attractive and undervalued stocks while avoiding a classic value pitfall of investing too early.
By blending the talents of Foundry’s Value and Growth Teams, we believe we can optimize our resources and create a portfolio that draws on the strengths of both growth and value viewpoints.
Our growth strategies identify companies with attributes indicative of improving profitability and accelerating growth trends. Coupled with positive investor sentiment, our valuation discipline looks to combine these characteristics with favorable risk/reward potential.
