Our philosophy is based on sound value investing principles:
• We view stock as an ownership of a business.
• We focus on the long-term quality of the business.
• We look for margin of safety between price and value.
When looking for new investment opportunities, screening is applied to reduce the investment universe to a manageable size of 500 companies. We screen for companies that are of above-average quality and that are attractively valued. Extensive fundamental analysis is done on both existing portfolio companies and new portfolio candidates. ESG topics (Environmental, Social and Governance) are fully integrated in our investment process. Finally, our team-based approach ensures every investment recommendation is thoroughly challenged. The result is a well-diversified portfolio of 60-90 companies spread across sectors and regions.
