Investment Philosophy

We believe that fundamental research into a company's/ entity’s operations and management is necessary to determine the value of a company/ issuer/ product.

We look at three main factors:

  • Is the underlying business good from a investment perspective (i.e.strong or rapidly improving return on equity)?
  • Has it got good management?
  • Is the valuation attractive based upon acceptable valuation methodology?

This requires experienced analysts with an informed opinion who can take into account the entire industry sector that the company operates in.
