EJF focuses on regulatory change and where we believe investment opportunities will be created. The firm employs a value-based, fundamental approach to security selection with a macro overlay based on the regulatory environment. Since inception, EJF has focused on anticipating and positioning around the regulatory pendulum that swings from highly regulated to deregulated, and back. EJF analyzes the pendulum movement to forecast how we believe institutions are going to lend and invest.
We believe the firm’s location inside Washington, D.C.’s Beltway provides access to the regulatory ecosystem present in the capital, and as a result, nuanced insight into the effects of regulation and deregulation.
