What drives us

Our Philosophy

Our investment style can be best described as “active value investing, with willingness to consider contrarian ideas.”

Our philosophy follows some of the modern era’s investing greats including: Sir John Templeton, Ben Graham, Peter Lynch, Charlie Munger, Warren Buffet and Anthony Bolton. Each of these great investors have proven over time that, not only does a value investing approach make intuitive sense, but that it can equally be highly profitable.

Our Research Process

We conduct deep, bottom up research on companies that seek to provide genuine insights into the merits of an opportunity in a way that others are yet to fully recognise. In doing so, we’ll look closely at the financial metrics of the business, but even closer at the track record of management and the views of key stakeholders within the businesses broader operating environment.

We are active, relentless and inquisitive. This sees us spending a lot of time ‘in the field’ because we believe that quite simply, great investment ideas aren’t found by staring at a computer screen.

Proven Success

Our Selection Process

We don’t seek to be ‘all things to all people’ and would prefer to focus our research efforts only on those ideas with the best prospect of success.

The strength and proven success of this approach is what leads us to be both unconstrained and high conviction in the way we construct portfolios.

Our Pricing

The fund charges ZERO fixed management fees. With performance only fees, we only benefit when our clients do. It’s that simple, and it’s that fair.

As a consequence, we are genuinely incentivised to preserve your capital. Who else who claims on capital preservation is actually prepared to forgo 100% of their revenue in months where the unit prices decline?

Moreover, we are also genuinely incentivised to grow your wealth rather than simply grow our funds under management. Superior returns are impossible to achieve when managing large pools of money as the ability to be flexible, nimble and ‘fly under the radar’ are diminished. We are boutique by design and intend to stay that way.
