JC Clark Ltd. has traditionally invested in under-followed companies and sectors, which has allowed the firm to exploit market inefficiencies.
More specifically, JC Clark has focused predominantly on traditional mid-cap Canadian companies and less on companies operating within the heavily followed basic materials and energy sectors. By focusing on these areas and employing variable bias strategies we have generated returns that are independent of market returns, and have produced significant alpha. We have also maintained a return profile with a low or negative correlation to many of the broader equity indices and many of our peers.
Please see the graphic below highlighting some of the inefficiencies that we believe exist in our investment universe in Canada.
