We aim to achieve superior investment performance with less-than-commensurate risk. We place the highest priority on preventing losses rather than merely searching for prospective profits to ensure we achieve superior performance in good times and bad.
We believe consistently excellent performance can only be achieved through superior research of companies and their underlying assets and not through trying to predict what is in store for the economy, interest rates or the overall equities market. As a result, our research methodology is entirely bottom up, based upon proprietary, concentrated research of a small number of high potential opportunities.
We believe that a superior record is built on consistent performance rather than a mix of brilliant successes and dismal failures. As a result, we focus on investing in companies in which the underlying assets are significantly undervalued and therefore have a high probability of delivering excellent returns.
We employ a highly disciplined investment strategy to ensure that all of our investments meet a stringent set of pre-defined objective criteria. As a result, we avoid making short-term emotional decisions in reaction to the market but focus instead on ensuring our long term success.
