The team at Old West is always willing to discuss current holdings and the research process behind them. Just as we focus on investing with management teams who are heavily invested in their own companies, we want investors who expect the same of us.
A focus on people forms the core of Old West's investment process. As a first principle, we believe that the soundest way to protect and grow our capital is by aligning ourselves with management teams who have high stock ownership and smart pay.
Old West manages long only and long/short investment strategies based upon the companies that we uncover through our simple yet sound investment process. We are focused on uncovering value opportunities, and we are concentrated in our best ideas.

ADHERING TO THE CODE OF THE WEST
Old West Investment Management, LLC was founded based on the values embodied in the Code of the West. Simply, we are committed to treating our investors as we ourselves would like to be treated. Aside from being the right thing to do, we believe that attracting a dedicated investor base provides a competitive advantage for us to enact our disciplined, long term, and often contrarian investment process.
Our focus is on investing in businesses run by management teams with large stock ownership, smart pay, and track records of successfully compounding shareholder value. Further, we seek to buy into such businesses at discounted prices that offer us an attractive forward return with limited risk of capital loss.
Old West manages long only and long/short investment strategies based upon the companies that we uncover through our simple yet sound investment process. Our investment strategies are focused on uncovering value opportunities, and we are concentrated in our best ideas - roughly 50% of our capital is invested in our Top 10 Holdings.
