Street Capitalist: Event Driven Value Investments

streetcapitalist.com [cached]

Cara Goldenberg of Permian Investment Partners is a young fund manager that has been making some waves. A while back she mailed Warren Buffett a few investment ideas and was invited to meet with him one on one. Recently, she was featured in Fortune, where she talked a lot about her firm's emphasis on looking at the managers behind a business:

At just 30 years old, Cara Goldenberg is at the top of her game. She is the founder and managing partner of Permian Investment Partners, a New York City-based hedge fund she launched in 2008.
Goldenberg began her career at Morgan Stanley (MS, Fortune 500) as an analyst in the investment banking division. Her strong quant skills quickly funneled her into the private equity group, a move that allowed her to circumvent the traditional analyst-associate-business school route that many of her peers would follow.
Less than two years into her stint at Morgan Stanley, Goldenberg was one of the first young investment bankers to be picked off by the hedge fund industry. She left to work for Highbridge Capital Management. Brahman Capital's management team was so impressed with Goldenberg's questions during an investor meeting, that they recruited her away from Highbridge.
Goldenberg focuses on European special situations / event driven investments. As markets become more efficient with quant/algorithmic strategies coming online, I think we're going to see an increased emphasis on finding value in areas of the market where it might be difficult to discern value. Goldenberg reports that most of the companies she looks at have a history of depressed earnings which are then fixed when a new manager comes in:
Fortune: What has been the driving force for you as an investor?
Goldenberg: I was trained early on to focus primarily on management quality.

Cara Goldenberg, 28, one of the youngest women ever to launch a hedge fund, in June opened Permian Investment Partners in New York with $65 million in assets. She starts out with an impressive pedigree. Goldenberg, who has an undergraduate degree in chemistry from Yale University, has been a buy-side analyst at Morgan Stanley, a financial analyst at Highbridge and a portfolio manager at New York-based Brahman Capital, where she helped construct and oversee a European equity portfolio whose assets exceeded $2 billion.

Like other women who have succeeded in hedge funds, she believes performance is all that should matter and someday may be all that does in an industry that seems not to be so irrationally awash in testosterone as it once was.

There's definitely a reinforcing moat with Goldenberg's strategy. I don't think an average investor would be able to figure out much about a Marchionne prior to him joining Fiat, or if they did to figure out how he operated.
