Azarias Capital’s mission is to develop and maintain a reputation as an ethical, world-class boutique investment manager.
The industry is faced with a problem: most active managers don’t generate enough alpha (if any). For too long, investment managers have been incentivized to grow assets at the expense of performance. Azarias is structured to solve this problem. Because Azarias Capital’s business model is structured differently, it can commit to a hard close at $500m (or less) AUM between its Focused Small Cap Value and Long Short Small Cap Value strategies. By making this commitment in a capacity constrained asset class, Azarias tightly aligned its objective to meet client needs. That objective is to generate top percentile performance over five year and since-inception measurement periods.
