Focus on targeted return.

Seek investments which the team believes have the ability to generate a double-digit return over three years.

Trading time for value.

A longer time horizon allows the team to exploit short-term volatility and poor price discovery.

Investment process

Undervalued earnings growth

Future redeployment of capital is not reflected in current valuation.

Undervalued asset

Asset price at a significant discount. Identified catalyst to close valuation gap.

Undervalued dividend yield

High secure dividend yield, typically 10% or higher.

Risk management

The investment team focuses beyond sector and factor exposure to gain a view of a portfolio’s positioning and biases. Their factor-based risk analysis is used when constructing portfolios to better understand what active positions are in those selections and any unintentional exposures that may come through when constructing a bottom-up portfolio.
