our-investment-principles

Our Investment Principles

Our investment approach is guided
by the following core principles.

Our investment approach is guided
by the following core principles.

Long Term Horizon

‘Market timing’ generally reduces investment returns over time. ‘Time in the market’ allows wealth to compound over the long term.

High Conviction

Be focused. Over-diversification in typical portfolios stifles the potential to outperform and means that nothing ‘moves the needle’.

Focus on Quality

High quality, growth businesses have the potential to compound returns above market benchmarks over the long term.

‘Micro before Macro’

Focus on the fundamental opportunity set rather than predictions of interest rates, fund flows, or other short-term macro or technical factors.

Value of Active Management

The average active fund manager disappoints, but exceptional managers do exist. Such managers can be very difficult for most investors to access.
