Scott Vallar left Wall Street in 2008 with the goal of developing a successful investment strategy for his own capital. In 2010, he founded Guard Hill Advisors, LLC to accommodate friends and family that had requested his help with their own portfolios. Leveraging Scott’s abilities to analyze credit risk and his understanding of the markets, GHA provides a value based investment strategy with the objective of maximizing returns over the long term. GHA identifies companies with strong fundamentals that are undervalued due to negative sentiment about the industry or the underlying asset itself. GHA’s portfolio consists of no more that 25 – 35 investments in companies that have a sound business model, strong management and the ability to generate significant free cash flow.
