Index unaware approach to investing in quality companies at reasonable prices

  • Aim is improved long-term investor returns, while also providing downside protection in adverse markets
  • Belief that successful long-term investing is a combination of art and science – combining robust data and methodical processes with experienced, balanced judgement
  • Approach to investing is based on the consideration of both investment risk (quality) and expected return (price), producing a portfolio that is style unaware and can include both value and growth securities
  • Combination of bottom-up fundamental analysis and an index unaware approach to capital allocation
