Risk defined

In line with our ‘absolute return’ objectives, we view risk as losing money. We are not interested in achieving ‘relative returns’ against stock market indexes, but in creating wealth by investing in compelling stocks (long and short) that meet our high return hurdle.

Let us explain

Constraint restricts reward from opportunity

Unlike most benchmark aware and index tracking funds, we have fewer portfolio constraints. Having a more flexible mindset, helps to increase the likelihood of us achieving our performance objectives, when compared to those fund managers who are bound by rules that make no sense from an investment perspective.

Let us explain

Compelling stocks

Compelling stocks are defined as those that meet our very high return hurdles and are mispriced and misunderstood by the market. Because we set the bar high, we focus our research attention on a small number of ideas that meet our strict criteria, versus trying to cover the whole market.
