Selectivity Drives Performance and Protects Capital
"Our evidence indicates a positive relation between fund performance and managers' willingness to take big bets in a relatively small number of stocks. Concentrated managers outperform their more broadly diversified counterparts by approximately 30 basis points, each month, or roughly 4% annualized."
Fund Managers Who Take Big Bets: Skilled or Overconfident: Klaas P. Baks, Jeffrey A. Busse, and T. Clifton Green March 2006 (Emory University, Giozueta Business School)
Long Term Approach
Wealth creation is maximized by taking advantage of time and compounding returns supported by a disciplined investment process. This approach is both tax efficient and minimizes cost for the investor.
A study by Wotherspoon and Longmeier  of investment manager performance demonstrated that, for a typical active manager, taxes reduced investment returns by 2 percent per year on average. This is due to frequent trading and the resulting short-term capital gains taxes
Leverage Compounding Returns
We seek to generate returns on our investments to add value for our clients and ourselves. We invest along side our client partners given our conviction in our process and philosophy. We see no stronger statement. Our direct investment capability also eliminates the layered fee structure common in advisor relationships.
We target unique business models that offer differentiated solutions to their underlying customers. This competitive leadership coupled with strong management results in financial strength which our clients can profit from over the long term. We categorize these situations across a spectrum of durable, innovative and opportunistic conditions.
Pursue Competitive Strength & Financial Strength
We target identifying truly compelling investment opportunities that have ample capital appreciation, while understanding the margin of safety. We thoroughly research companies using our proprietary fundamental criteria. We see only a small portion of the market opportunity meeting our requirements for investment. This focus aims to have a high success rate in the positions in which we invest.
