Investment Philosophy

Black Maple Capital was conceived upon a series of core principles:


We search across our core markets and throughout the capital structure to find the most attractive risk-adjusted investment opportunities. Once selected, we leverage this same multi-disciplinary approach to craft the optimal expression of each core investment, using all of the tools at our disposal.


We understand that markets move quickly and truly attractive opportunities can be fleeting. Our experienced team is responsive and opportunistic and capable of exploiting opportunities beneath the radar of larger competitors.


Our team embraces its contrarian nature. We actively question the consensus perspective and promote a culture that encourages “asking the tough questions.” Our Principals encourage multi-disciplinary debate to reach balanced and informed conclusions.

Risk Management

Leveraging risk analytics and systems developed over many years for a large, multi-national hedge fund, our experienced Risk Team is engaged across all stages of our investment process.


We emphasize thoughtful fundamental research and event analysis, coupled with other analytical filters where appropriate. While we apply different forms of analysis, the core elements of our investment process are consistent regardless of security, market, or geography.

“Best Ideas” Portfolio

We allocate capital to the team’s best ideas; not to individual portfolio managers, strategies, or markets. We structure incentives to ensure that capital flows to the highest caliber, most inspired investment prospects.


We actively monitor the projected investment catalysts to “know what we are playing for” and then exit or re-underwrite positions if our thesis fails to materialize.

Embrace Complexity

We pride ourselves on hunting where others fear to tread. Our team has extensive experience with complex events, including distressed investments, litigation analysis, and regulatory uncertainty, among many others.

Aligned Interests

We invest our capital alongside our investors’ capital.
