Investment belief

We believe security mispricing driven by investors ‘greed and fear’ is an enduring phenomenon that leads to significant security mispricing that can be exploited.

We believe that a process integrating the top down and the bottom up is best to exploit those market inefficiencies. We incorporate macroeconomic variables, such as GDP, trade balances, currency movements, inflation, interest rates and other aspects of the economy, to identify high-performing sectors, industries.

From a bottom-up perspective we believe that a valuation focused discipline combining the analysis of several key factors including growth prospects, financial health, supply and demand, governance, shareholder background generates superior long-term returns.

Investment decision-making process is executed with discipline in accordance with the following stages:

  • 1

    Top down
    • • 
      Sector growth and valuation
    • • 
      Macro economic and liquidity
