Investment Philosophy

We are value investors, seeking companies that we believe trade at a substantial discount to intrinsic value. We look for managers who seek to maximize the long-term value of their business for its owners.

Investment Approach

We utilize a fundamental, bottom-up investment approach. We do not focus on macroeconomic factors in our investment process. Rather, we frame the investment process as owning a piece of a business for the long term.
