Ironsides Partners LLC (“Ironsides”) is a Boston-based registered investment manager which focuses on finding discounted assets and other opportunities which arise from market dislocations and arbitrage opportunities. Ironsides employs arbitrage, distressed opportunities and special situation strategies with a focus on closed-end funds, holding companies and corporate restructurings.
Our core philosophy is that markets often price securities at a wide disparity from the intrinsic value of the underlying assets. We seek opportunities to purchase assets at a substantial discount to readily ascertainable asset values or to sell or short securities priced at a premium to intrinsic value. Other strategies employ more traditional value investing methods.
In most cases we seek to hedge market risk with the objective of eliminating beta, and in other instances we employ more traditional unhedged value investing methods. In all cases, our ultimate objective is to earn absolute returns while minimizing downside risk and benefitting from a margin of safety.
Ironsides manages three Ironsides Funds and one unaffiliated managed account. Robert Knapp, the managing director of Ironsides, is a director of the Africa Opportunity Fund Limited (LSE AIM: AOF) and its investment manager. Mr. Knapp currently serves as a director of various investment companies, including MVC Capital, Inc. (NYSE: MVC) and Pacific Alliance Asia Opportunity Fund Limited. Ironsides also invests its own capital in strategic opportunities via Ironsides Holdings LLC.
