After more than a decade, our flagship fund’s track record speaks to the superior risk-adjusted returns and tailored portfolio management we have been providing discerning Canadian investors
We treat your money like our own, and we leave no stone unturned when looking for investments worthy of your attention.
At Jemekk Capital we continue our long tradition of focusing on the two pillars of investing; growing capital and protecting capital. We accomplish the first principle through our multi-strategy approach by focusing on bottom-up research to identify opportunities. For the second—protecting capital—we manage risk through judicious use of hedging and options-based insurance protection, in addition to the benefits achieved through strategic diversification. Each of our funds has its own clear style and strategy; however, each stay focused on the core goals of protecting and growing capital within the context of each fund’s mandate.
Jemekk Capital Management is a Canadian-based, employee-owned, private investment management firm with the aim of providing consistent, positive, absolute returns for its clients. We’ve designed our firm—and our investment strategy—to stand out to bring a sensibly different option to a market saturated with “me too” offerings.
In Canada's relatively small securities markets, equities can rise and fall on relatively low volumes . With a small, engaged team and right-sized portfolios, we can investigate and respond decisively and quickly, taking advantage of our small size where larger funds may face liquidity challenges.
From Nortel to Blackberry to Valeant, Canadian investors find themselves exposed to outsized risk when the index inevitably becomes imbalanced. While our funds may invest in familiar companies, we typically demonstrate high 'active share' — a metric that reflects how different our portfolios look from the index.
Ultimately, the real value of working with a smaller firm is that the people you engage with are the people who actually work with your investments, every day. We invest alongside you, we value and depend on your business, and we're committed to clear communication and our mutual success.
