Investing Philosophy

"Our research is predominantly a bottom-up process beginning with fundamental analysis of a company's profitability and market position, financial and competitive position, management quality, valuation, and growth components of valuation. Top-down analysis is focused on industry dynamics, including sector economic factors, long-term capital flows, and the regulatory environment, not on macro-economic factors. Investment team insight and experience is then applied to further narrow the universe of investable ideas for deeper analysis including the creation of a financial model."

"we estimate the intrinsic value for each potential holding, which is independent of its current stock price. This price may be higher or lower than intrinsic value at any point in time. The process begins with consensus estimates for company data, and then the initial appraisal is modified based on further refinement by our research analysts. Our investment process continually compares market price to our estimate of intrinsic value, which is updated over time as new information arises."
