Opportunities are frequently driven by macro themes that shape the world. Often, a simple catalyst or value driver that is easily understood by the layperson will indicate the direction for a particular investment.
We invest in great businesses with long-term potential, and we do not speculate in financial trends or fads. We invest both narrowly and deeply, concentrating upon our best ideas. Having permanent capital and taking a long-term investment approach allows us to withstand greater volatility than most other institutions.
We take a fundamental/macro approach to investing using analytics, peer and sector analysis as our guide. We look for long /medium term investments but are able to trade short term volatility if the opportunity arises. Preservation of capital and growth though are our prime consideration.
