Our Philosophy & Process

We’ve found over the course of our careers that companies representing great values are not always initially exciting—one reason they may be overlooked by other investors. These companies may have good franchises, strong balance sheets and attractive dividend yields. Often, they are in the earliest stages of a positive transformation, driven by a catalyst such as a change in management, a potential acquisition or a nascent market trend. These catalysts can help unlock a company’s value; and seeking to identify them before their value becomes apparent to the market is the key to our investment process.
