our-investment-principles

Our investment approach is guided by the following core principles.

Our investment approach is guided by the following core principles.

1. Long Term Horizon

Wealth compounds over the long term. It is better to hold investments that can deliver ‘good’ returns over the long term, than short-term investments with potentially ‘excellent’ returns.

2. High Conviction

Over-diversification in typical portfolios stifles the potential to outperform. We offer a core of high quality direct equities alongside high conviction, specialist active fund managers where we believe they can add value.

3. Focus on Quality

We focus on owning high quality assets. ‘Value’ or ‘growth’ stories can perform well in the short / medium term, but high quality businesses have the potential to compound returns above market benchmarks over the long term.

4. Intelligent Manager Selection

While the average active fund manager generally disappoints, we believe it is possible (if not easy) to select the subset which is most likely to be able to outperform. Past performance is only one factor in this process.

5. Multiple Asset Classes

‘The only free lunch in finance’. Exposure to multiple asset classes with different return drivers can increase returns, reduce the volatility of those returns, and provide protection in challenging markets.

6. ‘Micro before Macro’

Our asset allocation decisions are driven by the fundamental opportunity set available (‘Tactical’) rather than by short-term predictions of interest rates, fund flows, or other macro or technical factors (‘Market Timing’).

7. Fees Matter

The costs of active management are significant over the long term. It is important to know that you are paying fees that are reasonable for the strategy, to managers who are genuinely ‘active’ rather than ‘index huggers’.
