Investment Approach


Kingfish is committed to pursuing attractive investment opportunities in the upstream and oil field services energy sectors. Working collaboratively with our portfolio companies, we achieve long-term value creation by providing strategic, operational and financial expertise.  Elements of our investment philosophy include the following:

• Partner with exceptional owner-operators: people and execution drive outcomes.

• Target assets consistent with a management team’s geographic and operational expertise.

• Capitalize investments prudently and appropriately for the strategy, execution plan and commodity exposure.

• Employ disciplined and consistent hedging practices to mitigate cash flow volatility.

• Maintain a flexible investment time horizon.

• Avoid herd mentality: many of the most compelling opportunities are overlooked and / or out of favor.

• Exploit the benefits of being small and nimble.
