Investment Overview

Our investment team adheres to a traditional value approach that emphasizes high-quality, defensible franchises within a risk-aware framework.
We emphasize independent bottom-up, fundamental research.
Our focus is on leading companies we believe have been systematically mispriced by the market. Leading companies exhibit:
     – Advantaged business models as evidenced by strong returns on capital through the business cycle.
     – Financial discipline exemplified through a balance sheet that can protect the equity value of a business through market cycles.
     – A strong free cash flow profile that supports compounding of value through thoughtful capital allocation decisions.
A strict sell discipline helps to protect capital by remaining objective.
