Generating the best risk-adjusted returns is the highest goal of any investment pro. Edward Perlman was one who was able to meet that most elusive and noble objective for the ten years that he ran Scottwood Capital Management.
From its inception in 2001 through last year, when the firm quietly, and very presciently, handed back its clients’ money, Mr. Perlman delivered market-beating returns, generating on average a net 12 percent per year for his investors using little or no leverage. Mr. Perlman and his highly regarded team of analysts and traders did so by investing in under-valued stocks and bonds and by sticking with a uniquely contrarian investment approach.
During periods when asset managers in all strategies trailed the Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index, Edward Perlman stood out among his peers. Scottwood Capital Management and its outstanding team demonstrated a consistent history of generating some of the best risk-adjusted returns seen in the investment business.
