David Williams Investing Philosophy

David Williams makes long-term investments, typically contrarian in nature, and he sticks to his course through headwinds. He invests in deep value stocks but also in some growth stocks, when he can pick them up at the right price. The "restructuring" in the fund's name refers to the aspiration to invest in stocks that may benefit from fundamental corporate change, including but not limited to mergers and acquisitions. Williams makes large commitments to particular sectors that he feels are undervalued. This can lead the fund's performance to deviate significantly from the overall stock market.
