Gator Financial Partners Overview

Overview

Our Gator Capital Management team administers alternative strategies in private hedge funds and separately managed accounts (SMAs). Information on our alternative strategies is available to accredited investors and qualified purchasers.  Our alternative strategies focus primarily on specific opportunities in the U.S. financials sector.


The Funds:

Gator Financial Partners, LLC, Gator Financial Partners QP, LLC, & Gator Financial Partners Offshore, Ltd.

The Funds are long/short equity hedge funds focused on the Financials sector.  The Funds are run with variable net common exposure in an attempt to produce investment returns that are independent of the market direction of the Financial sector.

The Funds’ portfolios are built by performing intensive bottom-up fundamental research on both long and short positions and are concentrated on the portfolio manager’s highest conviction ideas.  The Funds never sells options but will purchase warrants and LEAPs as stock replacements.

The Funds favors small companies and companies with less research coverage from the sell-side.  There are 1,600-plus publicly traded companies in the Financials sector.  In addition, the sector requires specialized knowledge to correctly analyze the companies.  Therefore, the portfolio manager believes there are regular opportunities for specialized investors doing fundamental research in the sector.


Funds Goal

The Funds’ goal is to maximize total return without using leverage while accepting short-term periods of volatility due to the portfolio’s concentration.
