ABOUT BISON INTERESTS

image1

Bison seeks investments where there is a disconnect between the share price of a company and its intrinsic value. 


An opportunity exists in the public oil and gas space where an investor has the rare occasion to own parts of companies that are:

  1. managed by teams with proven track records 
  2. financially healthy 
  3. universally considered to own valuable assets
  4. priced at a material discount to what a private buyer is willing to pay 


With a depth of experience, a drive to earn money for our clients, and a proven track record, our investment firm identifies and invests in these existing opportunities in the public oil and gas space and has the constitution to withstand the mark to market volatility and harvest positions at a profit.
