Our long-term, value-oriented investment philosophy remains unchanged since the founding of Kinetics in 1996. The Firm’s independent research is the cornerstone of our investment process; to know us is to know our research. Our research team—analysts and portfolio managers alike—looks for investment opportunities in all sectors of the market and across the capital structure.
We believe dynamic unconventional thinking is required to find successful long-term investments. Therefore, our investment team avoids relying solely on conventional descriptive attributes and places greater emphasis on predictive attributes that are verifiable but not always readily quantifiable.
In the current, low interest rate environment, many investors are reaching for yield. In many cases, they are looking to historically high income-generating investments, which may not produce the desired yield going forward. We believe our income strategies offer a differentiated approach.
