  • For us, quality is not just a buzz word - rather, it is the core of our investment approach. With our proprietary research, we meticulously analyze companies using hard and soft factors to exclude from the investment universe those that do not meet our defined requirements to be assigned a Quality label. It is a stringent and consistent approach leaving no space for a simple “gut feeling”. Only in the last step of our approach, our Investment Committee will unanimously decide - on the back of their years-long experience - which quality stock will actually make it into the portfolio.
  • No, they do not. We apply the same criteria to every investment region of the world.
  • Historically and on average, our strategies managed to outperform respective benchmarks both during both up and down market phases. Especially in uncertain times, the quality of a company becomes a seek-after factor, which is a natural tailwind for Quality stocks.
  • In the environment where bonds offer low to negative yields, equity still remains an attractive asset class from the risk/reward perspective in the long-run. With the markets being as volatile as they are right now, and uncertainty prevailing over the general course of the global economy, the significance of the fundamental strength and quality of companies has never been higher. It is our duty towards our clients to ensure that the companies we select and invest in are the ones that have exceptional financial strength.
  • We are not traders but investors. Both our Buy and Sell criteria are systematic and very disciplined. We include (exclude) a stock in (from) our portfolio only if there is a change in valuation or fundamentals so that it no longer is “quality at an attractive valuation”. Therefore, there are months, when no trades for a portfolio are made.
  • We work with various banks both in Latvia and internationally.
