We believe that non-investment grade, middle market companies exist in an inefficient area of the market sector often overlooked by market participants. Such companies provide Bridgefield with a fertile source of investment opportunities.
Our investment philosophy consists of five enduring tenets that have remained unchanged
Risk control is job #1
Our aim is to achieve outstanding investment performance, while minimizing the associated risks. Simply achieving above-average returns during times of market growth is not an indication of skill; it is important to demonstrate superior performance during difficult times to prove that any profits gained were the result of expertise rather than simply taking on excessive risk. Consequently, our primary focus is not solely on maximizing potential profits but on preventing losses. We firmly believe that in the dynamic markets we operate in, prioritizing loss prevention is key to success, as avoiding losses enables winners to emerge naturally.
