How we invest
We combine cautious asset allocation with the careful selection of what we consider to be high-quality companies, purchased at attractive valuations. We select other asset classes on the basis of:
Diversifying risk, such as gold-related investments and government bonds
Safety and optionality, such as short-dated Treasuries and cash
Protection from inflation, such as index-linked government bonds and gold-related investments
