Investment Approach

  • Focus on companies with double-digit earnings and cash flow growth - emphasize sustainable growth, not momentum growth. 
  • Integrate fundamental research - seek high-quality earnings, strong free cash flow growth, and seasoned management teams with a demonstrated history of thoughtful capital allocation. 
  • Capitalize on differences between cyclical and secular growth - essential to successful growth investing.
  • Avoid overpaying for growth, while broadly diversifying portfolios, to manage portfolio risk.
  • Integrate non-U.S. stocks in a measured fashion to add value versus the benchmarks.
