Palisade Capital Management

A fundamentally different
way to invest.

As an independent asset manager established in 1995, Palisade Capital Management thinks, invests, and treats our clients in a manner that is fundamentally different from other managers. We believe in putting clients first, constant communication, fundamental research — and much more.

We invite you to see the difference being different can make:

Focused All Cap Equity

Palisade’s Focused All Cap Equity strategy is led by Senior Portfolio Manager Will Potter. Our objective is to invest in a diversified, yet focused portfolio of well-managed companies in all capitalization ranges. Through fundamental research, we seek to narrow the universe down to a portfolio typically comprised of 20-30 compounders of shareowner value. We prefer portfolio company management teams that distinguish themselves through continuous operational improvement, highly-competitive corporate strategies, and disciplined/effective deployment of capital. Palisade’s Focused All Cap Equity strategy is currently available through separately managed accounts.

Small Cap Core Equity

Led by Senior Portfolio Manager Marc Shapiro, Palisade’s experienced four-member Small Cap Core Equity team utilizes a research-intensive, disciplined investment process that integrates bottom-up fundamental stock research with a conviction-weighted approach to portfolio construction. This patient investment approach seeks outperformance regardless of market environment. Palisade’s Small Cap Core Equity portfolios are available through separately managed accounts, subadvised mutual fund engagements, a collective investment trust, and various wrap, SMA and UMA platforms.

Convertible Securities

Palisade's Convertible Securities team, led by Senior Portfolio Manager Bill Lee, is responsible for managing our Convertible Securities (CS), Short Duration Convertible Bond (SDCB), and Hedged Convertibles (HC) portfolios.

Private Wealth Management

Private Wealth Management has served as a cornerstone of Palisade’s business since the firm’s founding in 1995. Our highly experienced Private Wealth Management team averages over three decades each of advising individuals and families on how to preserve and grow their wealth. We work directly with clients to gain an understanding of financial needs, expectations, and goals. We then develop a plan for our clients’ financial future and design an investment strategy and diversified portfolio around each client’s unique circumstances.

Private Equity

Since 1997, Palisade has raised five private equity funds totaling over $400 million in capital. Our Private Equity funds seek to achieve attractive total returns through investments in small-to middle-market private and out-of-favor small public companies that represent “special situations” or growth opportunities. Palisade’s private equity funds are currently fully invested and are no longer open to new investors.

MARKET UPDATE from Dan Veru
Posted in Market Commentaries
During this stressful time, we know that your health and safety, and the wellbeing of your family and friends, is your number one priority. Like all previous crises, we will recover a stronger nation. However, as the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic accelerates domestically and the U.S. economy, the strongest and largest on earth, has come to a grinding halt, many of our fellow citizens are significantly impacted. We are almost certainly in a recession, but the government response is of a size and scale that has never been seen before, even during the 2008 financial crisis. I am confident that the economy will endure and a three- to six-month bottoming process for stocks and corporate bonds has likely begun.

Allocations to Concentrated Equity Strategies
As investors search for solutions to help meet their risk and return objectives in these uncertain times, Palisade believes concentrated equity portfolios of high-quality issuers offer a compelling approach to achieve long-term investment objectives. Investors should not underestimate the role of individual companies within a portfolio or believe all risk can be avoided through diversification. Instead, investors seeking long-term return should consider allocating some portion of their assets to concentrated strategies that allow individual companies to drive portfolio performance.
