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. 

Current Year Performance

Actual fees may vary. “Pure” gross returns are presented before the deduction of expenses and all other fees, but may include transaction costs. Returns include reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.
