Investing Is Complex
Our portfolio management team looks at ratios, profit margins, business plans, and the latest news, pouring over the tiniest details to find an edge.
Our Investment Philosophy
- Diversify across different asset classes. Avoid putting all your money in real estate, stocks, bonds or and single investment class.
- Diversify within asset classes. Don’t put all your money in a favourite stock or one piece of property.
- Diversify across markets, countries, and currencies around the world. We live in a global economy, so don’t make the mistake of investing solely in your own country.
- Diversify across time. You’re never going to know the right time to buy anything. But if you keep adding to your investments systematically over months and years you reduce your risk and increase your returns over time.
