Long/Short Equity Investment Strategy

EMJ Capital has a fundamental long-biased long/short equity strategy with a rigorous analysis on companies where technologies, products, and/or business models are undergoing change and innovation. Portfolio typically consists of 12–20 long and 11–20 short positions.

Early-Stage, Multi-Year, Compounding Growth

We strive to consistently find the next set of tech & media winners at an early stage of their growth curve — before they become more widely held. EMJ Capital has a solid track record of identifying early growth winners.

Concentrated Portfolio – High Conviction Ideas

Significant upfront research leads to high conviction. EMJ Capital has a concentrated, growth-biased global portfolio and typically consists of a balance of long and short positions. A concentrated approach gives clients more exposure to the next-generation of growth tech companies.

Tax Efficient Strategy – Hold Positions

EMJ Capital has a long-term orientation and often holds best ideas for 2–3 years, expecting them to double or triple over that period. Many winners outperform expectations – so why sell? Holding positions for a long duration makes the EMJ Capital strategy tax efficient for investors.
