The Glacier Peak Advantage:

Glacier Peak's competitive edge is deep rooted in our people, patience and structure. Our goal is to deliver superior risk-adjusted investment returns to our partners. We utilize a thoughtful opportunistic value approach in publicly traded equities, an approach that has driven our performance since our initial fund launched in 1991. Having a singular investment philosophy allows our team to work collaboratively to identify core investments that we feel are  mispriced. We are not trying to be “all things to all people”. We understand that our investment approach is unique to the marketplace, but our partners trust that our focus and commitment will always be on doing our best to protect partner capital from permanent loss while providing steady long term compounding returns.
