Our approach to investing

  1. We are active investors and aim to grow the money that our clients have invested with us by investing in quality companies, which we define as those with strong management teams and attractive businesses.

  2. We are also conservative investors and view risk in terms of the potential for losing money. As such, we invest our clients’ money as if it were our own.

  3. We believe Asia and Global Emerging Markets are attractive places to invest because of their fast economic growth and growing numbers of middle-class people that are spending more money on products and services.

  4. We are long-term growth investors and aim to own companies for at least three years, but frequently own them for much longer.

  5. We wish to buy great companies at reasonable prices and don’t follow the crowd in our thinking when we do so.

  6. We are responsible investors and take into consideration environmental, social and governance issues (ESG) when making investment decisions. This is also known as “active ownership” or “stewardship-led investing”.
