Gianluca​ ​Ferrari,​ ​Director,​ ​Shareholder​ ​Value​ ​Management

05:33 29 Comments

Gianluca Ferrari is a Director at Shareholder Value Management, an employee owned investment company based in Frankfurt, Germany. Shareholder Value advises over €2bn in AUM through various investment vehicles, allocating capital under a value-oriented​ ​framework.   Gianluca has lived both in the US and Italy, where he graduated with a degree in  Economics and Business from LUISS University in Rome. At age 19 he founded a start-up which he managed successfully for two years while attending university after which he moved to Germany where he now lives. He currently serves on the Board of Directors of Be Think Solve Execute SpA, an IT Consulting company listed on the Milan Stock Exchange and is the author of “Value Investing: la Guida Definitiva all’Investimento​ ​Azionario”,​ ​the​ ​first​ ​book​ ​on​ ​Value​ ​Investing​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Italian​ ​language.
WORKSHOP:​ ​Activism​ ​in​ ​Europe 
The workshop will outline our experience in being active owners of our portfolio positions, with a focus on U.K. and Italy. We will touch on various aspects of the process: idea generation, interaction with companies and boards and strategies for reaching​ ​optimal​ ​outcomes. 

INTERVIEW: 
Can you please explain what is activist investing? 

GF: While the textbook definition of activist investing can take many shapes and forms, we view it simply as our duty, as fractional owners of a business, to see that such business is managed to its full potential for the benefit of shareholders. Activism for us is a mindset that allows us the flexibility to transition from the role of a passive shareholder to that of a value-added shareholder for the benefit of our portfolio companies​ ​which​ ​we​ ​commit​ ​to​ ​supporting. 

Can value investing and activist​ investing​ be applied together?   

GF: Activism is inevitably a consequence of a value investor’s mindset: one only actively​ ​supports​ ​a​ ​company​ ​when​ ​there​ ​is​ ​value​ ​to​ ​be​ ​created. 

Do you think that activist investing can bring better results than a general passive investment​ approach?   

GF: Yes. While there may come times during market cycles when assets become expensive and opportunities are scarce, I doubt that there will ever come a time when companies will cease to require active support by their shareholders, be it in good times or​ ​bad.   

Do you derive satisfaction from the fact that as an activist investor you actively contribute to​ better efficiency​ in​ companies´ asset​ allocation?   

GF: The biggest satisfaction comes from seeing concrete improvements in companies‘ long​ ​term​ ​prospects​ ​and​ ​sustainability​ ​that​ ​benefit​ ​all​ ​parties.  

Are there different legal and cultural barriers in individual countries that you face as an activist investors? Which​ countries are most friendly for your approach?   

GF: Indeed there are differences, but helping companies create value for their shareholders isn’t an activity that is limited to a single geography, culture or legal framework, rather how to go about doing so is different from country to country. The trick​ ​is​ ​to​ ​tailor​ ​your​ ​approach​ ​to​ ​the​ ​market​ ​you​ ​are​ ​investing​ ​in.

Is your book​ available​ in​ other language​ than italian?   

GF: Unfortunately not, but I would argue that books far better than my own have been                published​ ​in​ ​most​ ​other​ ​languages.

Mr. Gianluca Ferrari is one of the speakers of the 4. Česká investiční konference, which takes place on November 23 and 24 in Prague, hotel Pyramida. For more information and registration details visit this link: www.ceskainvesticnikonference.cz

  2. My name is Silvia Scali, and I am a caregiver. I note that at the moment I am like the happiest. I come in testimony of a loan between individuals that I have just received. I received my loan thanks to the service of Mr. Pierre Michel. I started the procedures with her on last Friday and on Tuesday 10:45 am since the banks do not work on Saturdays, then I received confirmation that the transfer of the amount of my request of 70.000€ was sent to me on my account and having consulted my bank account very early, to my great surprise the transfer was successful. Here is his email: combaluzierp443@gmail.com
