Future ProspectsWe focus on companies, which generally have shown consistent, above average growth historically, and have good future prospects.
Running With WinnersWe believe in “watering the flowers and pulling the weeds”, in other words running with the winners and axing the poor performers.
Spreading RiskWe believe in spreading risk by diversifying between 10 to 15 quality companies.
Stop Loss StrategyWe believe in exercising a stop loss strategy to avoid unnecessary losses when unforeseen turns in world markets or within a particular company occur.
Minimising Financial RiskWe believe in minimising financial risk by investing in equities that are relatively cheap in market terms. In other words, investing in a strong equity when it offers value by having a low price earnings ratio.
Technical AnalysisWe believe in using technical analysis to determine when to buy and sell equities acknowledging that trading opportunities exist as a consequence of market and share price movements. This is achieved through a disciplined and constant monitoring process.
Investment StrategyWe believe in having a clearly defined investment strategy and rigidly applying it. We pay particular attention to risk management as the socio-political, economic and technological environment is rapidly changing and a pro-active approach to the management of a portfolio is essential.
