We believe our client’s money should be handled exactly as hard earned money should be handled, with care. We understand one-time mishaps can undo years of outperformance and we are vigilant against exposing our clients to such risks. At the same time we are focused on generating above-par returns by taking part ownership in excellent business. We call it investing with a “business-owner” mindset.
We like to be part-owners in companies with stable fundamentals and good long term growth potential when they are available at reasonable price. Once we buy shares of those companies, we intend to keep owning them for a very long time. We believe owning such companies is like owning a piece of land or a gold cube that keeps increasing in size every year.
We view publicly traded shares as a means to become part-owners of these great companies and not something to speculate upon. At the same time, we perceive stock market as a mad man to be taken advantage of. So we buy shares when people in share market are pessimistic and offer shares at reasonable prices, and selectively sell shares when they are irrationally exuberant. At times when we are not able to find such companies at reasonable prices, we selectively invest in situations which may yield good profit over a short-term horizon.
We do not know where the stock market or the economy is going to go over next few months and we do not speculate on those factors. However, we are sure both of these will perform very well over a longer term.
We design our investment strategy to meet the following twin objective:
- Generate above par returns over a long term
- Minimize chances of permanent capital loss
“Win big if things go well, don’t lose much if things go bad”
We have the following fundamental tenets for making investments:
