Approach 

Every portfolio manager at Harris follows the same investment process under all market conditions, believing that strict adherence to the firm’s three value tenets can reduce risk and increase returns over time.

Price

Buy businesses at a significant discount to their estimate of intrinsic value

Growth

Invest in companies expected to grow per share value over time

Management

Invest with management teams that think and act as owners

Research-driven Investment process

Portfolios are built from the bottom up, focusing on company fundamentals to estimate intrinsic value and set buy and sell targets. Integral to Harris’ research-driven investment process, all research analysts are generalists. This approach ensures that they remain industry agnostic and focused on finding value, regardless of which industries or geographies are in favor at the moment.  Overall, the investment opportunities that make it through this rigorous process are then used to build portfolios, one investment at a time.
