Unlike most investment funds, Pinetree is not encumbered by restrictions that impact investment timing, minimum or maximum size of investment, nor sector focus. 

Our managers are experienced technology investors.  We take advantage of special situations and other opportunities as they arise, and make investments in other sectors which we identify from time to time as offering particular value. 

Our investment approach is to develop a macro view of a sector, build a position consistent with the view by identifying micro-cap opportunities within that sector, and devise an exit strategy designed to maximize our relative return in light of changing fundamentals and opportunities.


Generally, our investment activities are passive. However, we do, from time to time, take an active role in the business of companies in which we have equity positions through the provision of strategic advice, board representation and/or other means.
