Our investment strategy pursues a deep value approach, consistent with the philosophy of Benjamin Graham and David Dodd – that is, to provide “safety of principal and an adequate return”. As value investors we deliberately stand apart from the herd and try to think independently and without prejudice. We invest anti-cyclical and for the long term.
Our investment universe is global and the stocks we invest in are normally well established firms that have been temporarily forgotten or misunderstood by the market, or excessively punished as a result of a problem. Unjustified valuation discounts are an attractive buying opportunity and may lead to above average results over the long term.
We aim to offer a long-term service and partnership to our clients. Investing according to our value strategy requires a distinctly independent thought process and a very-long investment horizon exceeding 5 years. This requires a willingness to disregard or even exploit short-term market fluctuations.
