Global Mandate

Our Global strategy seeks to generate superior long-term investment returns and minimize the risk of permanent capital loss by investing primarily in a concentrated number of global companies that meet our Business, People, Price investment criteria.

We invest with a three-to-five-year investment horizon and take advantage of short-term volatility to own high quality businesses, run by capable management teams, whose stock prices we believe are trading temporarily at a discount. Our extensive, global network allows us to engage with our management partners to help drive long-term value creation.

Portfolio Information

  • The Portfolio's objective is long-term capital growth. Current income is not an objective.

  • We generally invest in companies with market capitalizations over $3 billion.

  • Portfolio construction is benchmark-agnostic, and sector, industry and country weights are a by-product of bottom-up investment decisions.

  • If we cannot find qualifying investment opportunities, we will hold cash.

  • Portfolios normally contain 18-22 securities.

  • We do not hedge currency exposure.

  • If size begins to inhibit our ability to manage Global mandates, we will close to new investors.
