Due Diligence


Investment Philosophy

Today’s world demands a global investment focus.  Successful investing requires a balance between reward and risk.

During normal market conditions, we favor high quality companies, which we define as those with competitive advantages in their markets and a history of strong financial & operational performance.  In addition, we look for individual securities that show consistent earnings growth, while being valuable relative to their peers.

Our philosophy is to select individual securities while utilizing ETFs*, to support areas we believe benefit from additional diversification, or when low liquidity is present in smaller markets around the world.


The Investment Team is comprised of disciplined and tenured individuals with significant experience managing global portfolios for both individual and institutional investors.  The unique experiences of each member on our investment team shape our philosophy of investing. Meet the Team.
