A core element of Harvest’s investment strategy is to identify industry sectors with attractive secular trends and invest in companies positioned to benefit from those trends. The Firm researches industry verticals and develops investment themes targeting the most attractive segments within those verticals.
The sourcing program is driven by direct calling and Harvest’s well-developed network of financial intermediaries and industry executives. Harvest’s sourcing efforts have led to many internally generated proprietary opportunities and investments.
Seeking competitive advantage
While Harvest does not avoid competitive situations, it will only participate in them if its investment professionals believe that the Firm will either have or can develop a differentiated point of view.
