Goodwood Capital Management, LLC is an independent money management firm that provides services to individuals, institutions, family offices, advisors, and foundations. The firm's portfolio managers spent a combined 20 years in the equity hedge fund industry. These experiences in the business since 2002 formed the bedrock of our approach to actively managing stock portfolios and embody in our mission to be Fundamentally Driven and Research Focused.
With offices in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Goodwood was founded upon the idea of democratizing the equity hedge fund model, which is typically known for deep fundamental stock research, but also high fees. Goodwood began with this core belief by initially offering its Goodwood SMID-Cap Managed Account Portfolio with no performance fees, no capital lock-ups and full transparency. As a natural complement, the firm also offers the Goodwood Preferred Stock Portfolio to appeal to more conservative fixed income clients. We frequently integrate both strategies into a single account for clients who desire a more balanced portfolio.
In September 2013, Goodwood Advisors, LLC was formed to become the advisor to a Mutual Fund. In October, 2013 Goodwood became the advisor and portfolio manager of the Goodwood SMID Cap Discovery Fund (GAMAX|GAMIX). The Fund was originally named the Caritas All-Cap Growth Fund (CTSAX) and was managed by another Advisor from January 2010 to July 2013. With acceptable performance and challenged asset growth, the prior Advisor's vacancy allowed Goodwood to step in. Goodwood became the Advisor to the Fund on October 1, 2013 after acting as consultant since late September, 2013.
Goodwood incorporated the same fundamental driven, bottom-up investment philosophy as its core Goodwood SMID-Cap Managed Account Portfolio that it has been managing since January, 2012. The Goodwood SMID-Cap Discovery Fund (GAMAX|GAMIX) is a long-only, concentrated portfolio of 40-50 stocks that is also available in a Managed Account Portfolio.
