Hestia Capital seeks to serve its Partners by generating attractive long-term, risk-adjusted absolute returns. The firm focuses on identifying misunderstood companies that are typically generating significant free cash flow. Through intense research, focused on understanding the competitive dynamics of the industry and their impact on the company’s prospects, we believe we are able to successfully pick those companies which are simply misunderstood versus truly broken.
