Annapolis’ mandate is to generate above average risk adjusted returns in the medium to long term from investments made in the Canadian oil and gas sector. Annapolis' focus is on investments in start-up and early-stage exploration and production companies, primarily in the private domain.

Within the broader context of oil and gas equities, Annapolis believes that stronger returns can be found within the private-company sector, where some of the best and most cost effective teams in the industry operate.

Many highly expertised teams prefer to be private where they can focus on maximizing long-term value. Accordingly, Annapolis invests in this more exclusive private market where a major pool of talent resides, where access to capital is restricted and where private equity funds, like Annapolis, are the preferred source of funding. That said, Annapolis has, and will continue to make investments in publicly traded companies that otherwise meet its investment criteria.
