About Us

Perceptive Investment Research provides deep fundamental analysis on investment ideas that we believe have exceptional risk-return characteristics. We conduct extensive research to identify securities that we view as being materially mispriced. We then seek to understand why the mispricing is occurring and try to identify a path towards repricing to a level more consistent with intrinsic value.


Differentiated Research

Focused idea generation saves subscribers time and effort
We search the global universe of investments to create a short-list of potential ideas. We then conduct exhaustive fundamental research to narrow the opportunity set to provide subscribers with only those investment ideas that we believe have the best risk-return profiles.

Exclusive focus on highest conviction ideas yields deeper insights
Our small coverage universe enables us to provide deep and insightful research. We generally expect to provide in-depth coverage on just 4-8 investment ideas per year. We believe this enables us to provide the most in-depth coverage on our highest confidence ideas.

Unconstrained coverage universe provides a wider opportunity set relative to conventional research
We have complete flexibility in terms of industry sector, company size, security type (equities, fixed income, commodities, etc.), trade type (long/short, pair trade), and geographic region.
