Investment Philosophy

As value investors we firmly believe that

a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush”. 



Stock markets often overpay for success and excessively discount the prices of companies facing challenges.  We aim to capitalize on the market’s disdain for companies perceived to have limited prospects by purchasing them when expectations and prices are low.  Our application of this risk-reducing, return-enhancing philosophy to a diversified universe of high quality, well-managed companies is how we add value to your equity portfolios. We approach asset allocation with exactly the same emphasis on the purchase of low expectation "bird in the hand" assets at the industry, country and asset class levels.
