Our objective
Our objective

We target a long-term, risk-adjusted return higher than that of the markets, given our absolute-return management approach. We seek to maximize our comparative advantages as a strategic investor by focusing on the fundamental value-creation aspects of companies.

Our investment approach

  • Build a resilient portfolio with a long-term view
  • Focus on absolute-return management and on the intrinsic value of companies, irrespective of changes in or composition of traditional indexes
  • Target companies with high, stable profitability, that use leverage prudently
  • Favour a quality-based investment approach while leaving room for complementary value opportunities
  • As a committed partner, contribute actively to the growth of companies in the portfolio
