About AOF Management LLC

Active Owners Fund (AOF), founded by Joe Pretlow and Ben Terk, is a deep value, event driven, long/short fund investing in North American small cap opportunities. After developing conviction and becoming a long term shareholder, we endeavor to raise the profile of our portfolio companies among our established network of hedge funds, analysts, bankers and private equity providers. Our extensive private equity experience and relationships allow us to identify and drive value realization events across our portfolio. Our focus on undervalued small cap "buy-out" quality companies, market hedged portfolio and active company engagement differentiates us from our peers. Our disciplined and rigorous approach combined with a strict emphasis on risk control and downside protection has enabled us to generate compelling, long term, unlevered absolute returns with below market risk.

Our role has ranged from being a purely passive, patient and well informed shareholder to leveraging our private equity skill set as a resource to management. After developing conviction and becoming a long term shareholder, we endeavor to raise the profile of our portfolio companies among our established network of hedge funds, analysts, bankers and private equity providers.
