As research driven investors, we seek to identify value oriented opportunities across a variety of asset classes in the public and private capital markets. Our approach to asset management is active, concentrated and catalyst-focused.
As partners, we hold significant investments in our own strategies, ensuring that we are focused on preserving capital and generating stable, long term growth. This authentic alignment is the foundation of our Protect and Grow philosophy.
As professionals, we promote integrity, transparency and objectivity within ourselves and our industry. We follow a set of firm-wide guidelines for good business and investment, which we refer to as Our Principles. These Principles, which are outlined in full detail below our team biographies and also found on various pages of this site, can be simply encapsulated as follows:
Play great defence. Focus on adding value. Have skin in the game.
