Bonitas Research was founded by Matthew Wiechert, founder of Glaucus Research. The Latin word “Bonitas” is defined as goodness, integrity, moral excellence, kindness, benevolence, and tenderness. At Bonitas Research, we try to identify and expose fraudulent activity that exists in the public capital markets, which we believe ultimately makes the world a better place. Using exclusively publicly available evidence, we try to understand how bad global market participants perpetrate frauds against unsuspecting investors for their own self interests.
At Bonitas Research, we invest behind our ideas. Our investment process often exceeds 500+ hours of analytical work for each published investment idea which includes quantitative screening and qualitative forensic analysis to give us the best possible understanding of the operations and financial performance of the underlying business as compared to what is reported by management in the Company’s public filings.
