Protea Capital Management is an investment management firm. We manage hedge funds and private client share portfolios. Our focus is on growing the wealth of our retail and institutional clients at an above-average rate over the long-term, by investing in publicly listed equities worldwide. We employ a proprietary ‘quantamental’ investment analysis process to stock-picking, both long and short.
The origin of Protea Capital Management dates back to early 2009, when Jean Pierre Verster invited a small group of friends and family members to pool their investments and form the Verster Investment Partnership, where he, as General Partner, would manage their wealth alongside his own. The core strategy quickly developed into a diversified share (stock) portfolio investing in listed equities on the Johannesburg Securities Exchange in South Africa, both long and short. The mandate of the Partnership was later expanded to include investing in publicly listed equities globally, both long and short.
What does ‘quantamental’ mean?
Our portfolios are constructed by systematically identifying individual mispriced securities whilst ensuring sufficient diversification to guard against inappropriate risk concentration. Other investment management firms might also use the term ‘quantamental’ to describe their process, but no two ‘quantamental’ investment processes are identical.
