DDJ's portfolio managers are responsible for constructing customized portfolios consistent with our clients' investment objectives and guidelines. Using our thorough research process, we structure portfolios that are broadly diversified by issue, issuer and sector. Portfolio managers provide constant oversight of all investments as well as new opportunities to continuously optimize the value of our portfolios under management.
Fundamental analysis is the cornerstone of DDJ's investment process. Our approach enables us to create a comprehensive analytical overview of companies by focusing on their current and future business prospects. Areas for evaluation include the company's senior management, industry fundamentals, market share, pricing power, operations, and historical and projected financial performance.
Each of our research analysts concentrates on select industries rather than product lines. As a result, our analysts evaluate a company’s entire capital structure in ranking possible investment opportunities for all of DDJ’s strategies based on the anticipated return vs. risk. We believe this approach strengthens our analysts' ability to identify investment opportunities and gives us a competitive advantage.
Our in-house attorneys, who collaborate extensively with our analysts throughout the research process, provide DDJ with another key advantage relative to our competitors. Their ability to assess the various rights associated with particular debt obligations and related arrangements enables our investment professionals to properly gauge the potential upside and downside of an investment.
Our dedicated trading team executes trades across all portfolios under management. We pride ourselves on our cost-effective and discrete approach to trade execution.
DDJ augments the talents of our in-house staff with the expertise of various members of the investment community, including senior operating executives, attorneys, management consultants and investment bankers. Access to these professionals improves our deal flow and research process. It also allows us to extend various forms of assistance to portfolio companies, including advice and participation on boards of directors, with the goal of maximizing value.
