Fundamental analysis is the cornerstone of DDJ's investment process. Our approach enables us to create a comprehensive analytical overview of companies by focusing on their current and future business prospects. Areas for evaluation include the company's senior management, industry fundamentals, market share, pricing power, operations, and historical and projected financial performance.
Each of our research analysts concentrates on select industries rather than product lines. As a result, our analysts evaluate a company’s entire capital structure in assessing possible investment opportunities for all of DDJ’s strategies based on the anticipated risk/reward profile. We believe that this approach strengthens our analysts' ability to identify investment opportunities and provides us with a competitive advantage.
Our in-house attorneys, who collaborate extensively with our analysts throughout the research process, provide DDJ with another key advantage relative to our competitors. Their ability to assess the various contractual rights associated with particular debt obligations and related arrangements enable our investment professionals to properly gauge the potential upside and downside of an investment.
