VL Capital applies a fundamental value perspective to investing. All investment models are proprietary to the firm and there is no reliance on third party research to make security selections. VL Capital also departs from the industry norm of focusing on short-term profits, rather holding positions for long-term periods. This investment methodology has created significant value for its investors.
Our equity research primarily focuses on identifying undervalued stocks with significant upside potential. In many cases, a firm’s public equity will become depressed due to short-term factors that ignore the long-term drivers of the company. By exploiting this temporary mispricing, considerable gains can be generated from a position.
VL Capital develops its own proprietary macroeconomic models. The VL Capital Recession Risk Index is a multi-factor, quantitative model that analyzes U.S. economic data to determine the probability of a recession on a monthly basis. The Recessions Risk Index has accurately predicted every economic recession in the U.S. dating back to 1971.
