CANA Partners LLC was founded in 2018 by W. Anthony Forstmann and John R. Cryan who have successfully managed significant investment funds and led corporate transformations over multiple economic and market cycles. We have structured CANA in an investor-centric manner.
We apply a “private equity” approach to investing in public markets. Our approach is a combination of bottom-up fundamental analysis and event-driven strategies. In particular we seek to find companies that have transformational potential that is unrealized or unappreciated by consensus investors in the market.
We blend our investing and corporate finance expertise with our proprietary algorithms and an exclusive network of partners and operating executives to create a research advantage that drives our investment process. We look to invest in situations poised for significant capital appreciation and build a concentrated portfolio to take advantage of our opportunities.
We seek to capitalize on the capitulation of existing investors and aim to mitigate risk and protect investor capital both through our process and investment.
