Strategy, Benefits, Results

Strategy

  • We are long-term, bottom-up investors looking to buy companies with strong business models and sustainable future growth potential.
  • We look anywhere in the world for potential investment opportunities, seeking mid- and large-cap companies capable of the most growth.
  • Our investment team strives to understand each company's business model, profitability and future growth prospects.

Benefits

  • International Expertise. Our experienced investment team has extensive international investment experience.
  • Global Diversification. Foreign investments may provide additional portfolio diversification as international markets often move out of step with the U.S. market.
  • International Opportunity. Many of the world's most prominent corporations are headquartered overseas, and investors who add international holdings to their portfolios can take advantage of a broader array of opportunity.
  • Multinational Company Exposure. We invest in mid- and large-cap international companies that have a presence in multiple countries and regions around the world, making these companies less likely to be as affected by adverse economic or political situations in any given country.
