Investment Philosophy

Wealth creation, like wine-making, takes time. Our investment philosophy sets out a long-term approach aimed at targeting companies that, like fine vintages, will improve over time.

What sets us apart

Our top-of-the-line communications plan in four separate steps:

  • An investment policy statement, outlining the commitments between advisor and client, along with the investment goals, and presenting an overview of the recommended portfolio
  • A transaction record for each trade, including details (the stock and its price and weighting), company profile, quantitative and qualitative analysis, and stock chart
  • A monthly Info-Portfolio, including the financial results of certain stocks in the portfolio
  • A quarterly summary, including comments on the financial markets and the recommended portfolio strategy, in an easy-to-read format.


Transparency, attentiveness and rigour.

Service Offer

We offer customized discretionary management adapted to our clients’ needs with four portfolios holding securities directly, based on added economic value.
