Our competitive advantage

  • We seek to be rational when other investors are irrational
  • We have long holding periods (on average 4-5 years); we are investors not speculators
  • Slow but steady turnover of the portfolio should ensure a good blend of companies and sectors with different characteristics and at different stages of recovery
  • We take a contrarian, value approach but are very index aware
  • We undertake deep fundamental analysis
  • We use Enterprise Value (EV) rather than market capitalisation to ensure analysis allows for debt, pension deficits, contingent liabilities, working capital corrections, provisions and other liabilities
  • We are highly downside aware
