John Kleinheinz describes his investment strategy as contrarian - in other words, he doesn't necessarily go with the crowd. He also calls it opportunistic and value-oriented. John Kleinheinz uses a global long/short strategy, saying that, to him, this strategy gives the maximum returns for the amount of risk he is willing to take on. He will take on macro positions, like those involving currencies and commodities, if the opportunity is there. Otherwise, John Kleinheinz prefers to invest in companies with large market caps, that have pricing power or natural monopolies. He also likes companies that offer franchises and those in sectors that have fundamentals improving across the board.
