Intrinsic Asset, LLC is a state-registered investment adviser based in West Palm Beach, Fla. It manages a hedge fund, The Intrinsic Asset Fund, and separately managed accounts for accredited investors. The firm was founded and registered with FINRA in September 2016, by Jonathan Ball, who serves as the Chief Investment Officer
The Intrinsic Asset Fund is an aggressively managed portfolio of investments. The fund’s objective is to achieve a total return that exceeds the annual return of the S&P 500 Index and the Barclay’s Hedge Fund Index. Capital appreciation, capital preservation and risk management are the fund’s priorities.
The fund’s strategy is growth. The fund is a highly concentrated, high-conviction portfolio holding only the manager’s best ideas.
The fund seeks to capitalize on Mr. Ball's trading and analytical skills to make short-term and long-term capital gains, primarily short-term. He screens the market for specific fundamental qualities to narrow his choices down to a small pool that he believes will make outsized gains, then uses fundamental research to find companies that display strong growth characteristics. Finally, he uses technical analysis to determine when to buy and sell the stocks.
Mr. Ball closely follows the approach of William J. O’Neil, the founder of the Investors' Business Daily newspaper and the famed CANSLIM investing strategy.
