Our Approach

We take a simple and transparent investment approach, which can be summarised with these four, core principles.

Know what you own

We believe that transparency is enormously valuable in aiding financial professionals and their clients to make informed investment decisions, it is critical to know what you own.


Helps remove emotion and avoid the temptation to chase performance or shy away from value. Rebalancing forces you to reset your portfolio back to its intended allocation.

Employ discipline

Disciplined investing reduces the probability of making emotional investing decisions which can result in entering or leaving the market at precisely the wrong time.

Invest for the long-term

It is virtually impossible for even the most experienced investors to predict market movements with certainty and consistency, we believe a well-considered, long-term strategy is the way forward.
