Philosophy

We believe attractively valued companies managed by good stewards of capital may outperform the market over the long term. We seek to achieve our core investment goals by identifying growth-value anomalies. We seek good businesses with high or increasing returns on capital that have strong future growth prospects and are temporarily mispriced.

Process

Our research-driven process seeks to achieve our core investment goals by identifying "growth-value anomalies" — companies with strong prospects to grow shareholder value that are managed by good stewards of capital and trade at attractive valuations.

The team seeks:

  • To maintain a long-term, full-market-cycle perspective.
  • To emphasize companies with attractive returns on invested capital and free cash flow generation.
  • To utilize a valuation driven discipline.
  • A disciplined approach to risk management.
