  • Emphasize long-term absolute returns
  • Conduct rigorous, proprietary research and analysis
  • Focus on quality of companies & their valuations
  • Think and act independently and take acontrarian view
  • Make decisions based on thorough assessmentof companies and their managements
  • Act opportunistically – when price is at a 30 per cent discount to intrinsic value

We Do Not:

  • Speculate, gamble or take unreasonable risks
  • Focus on macroeconomic events that are nearly impossible to forecast
  • Consider short-term investment fads, trends or styles
  • Make decisions based on conjecture or egobased intuition
  • Focus on short-term relative performance
We seek to invest in businesses that have:
Increasingly relevant products or services
Above-average growth prospects
Consistently high returns on capital
Favourable industry dynamics
Sustainable competitive advantages
Quality management teams

Investment Principles

We view risk as the likelihood of sustaining a permanent capital loss on any investment, rather than market volatility.

We believe that the best way to protect and grow capital is by owning undervalued investments. We always seek to invest with a margin of safety to mitigate downside risk.

Our investment team conducts in-depth, fundamental research on each investment. We insist on knowing exactly what we own and why we own it.

Our partnership structure and the stability of our client base allow us to take a long-term perspective when making investment decisions. We are patient investors and not market timers.

We will only commit capital to investments that meet our strict investment criteria.
