Bay Capital is an active fiduciary. However, we invest the way we want our capital to be managed — with the utmost care. In the private equity business, we source our own deals by offering strategic inputs for our investees and in the process become trusted advisors. This creates a long-term relationship and, often, an attractive entry price. In investing in public markets, we look for companies with moats that are incredibly difficult to breach. Our typical holding period is quite long – creating overall cost efficiencies. We are motivated by generating performance and our overarching philosophy is to always keep our investors’ interest ahead of our own.
