How We Think
We choose our decisions to be driven by the analyses of data relevant to the markets that we invest in. We believe that a disciplined, systematic and unbiased approach is an effective way to preserve and develop the integrity of our decisions. The foundation of the way we think is based on learning, applying and improving.
We regard ourselves as students of the subject of investment management. Our learning ability is enhanced in the way we gather, research and interpret market data. We stand neutral towards information until we have evidence that it can be of value in our process.
Information becomes valuable only when we learn what its specific value is in improving the way we make decisions. The robustness of our process allows for a new profitable idea to be incorporated in our process very quickly.
The dynamic process of learning and applying creates an environment where improvement is a reality.
Our approach to investment management is to consider data and use our proprietary process to quantitatively develop our investment views. Our process enables us to dynamically test, consider and apply our findings in the portfolios that we manage. This characteristic enables us to improve our decision-making process continuously. We see the world of investments as a balance between expectations and reality. Big picture trends and data tend to tell us how the market should be acting whereas data more related to timing, tell us how the market is acting. Both perspectives are equally important and is applied in tandem when it comes to our decision-making models.
The purpose of our process is to manage capital based on an objective, measurable and testable decision-making process.
