Large Cap

Focused on companies whose intrinsic value increases over time



  • A deep understanding of a business gives us an informed view of a company’s intrinsic value – the value derived from the earnings and cash-flow a business generates
  • A long-term investment horizon allows us to capitalize on “time horizon arbitrage” opportunities that can be created by the short-term orientation of market participants
  • We believe utilizing a well-vetted and disciplined process to manage risk, in both security selection and portfolio construction, is critical to adding value and enhancing the probability of achieving consistent and repeatable results
