How we invest
We seek high-quality global companies to purchase at attractive valuations, that we can hold for the long term. We think like owners and buy equities to access the long-term future of a business.
We tend to avoid cyclical and highly capital-intensive companies. Instead, we prefer those with more defensive characteristics.
Portfolios are typically concentrated with approximately 30 – 50 stocks, based on our conviction and investment risk.
We aim to avoid destructive drawdowns in portfolios – this puts us in a better position to compound your returns over the long term.
