    Philosophy & Process
    We are bottom-up, growth orientated, long-term investors. We back our judgement, running concentrated portfolios with relatively low turnover. We aim to add value through the use of proprietary, fundamental research, which prioritises the selection of individually attractive companies, rather than taking top-down industry bets.
