Investing in a dynamic environment calls for an attentive and active strategy. A focus on Strategic Investing helps maintain a disposition of being above the fray. It embodies a holistic investment philosophy that is relevant across market conditions.
Following years of research, Dr. Brian Bushee of The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, identified three types of institutional investors: 61% as Quasi-Indexers (market replicators), 31% as Transients (tactical traders) and only 8% as Dedicated Investors, which provide stable ownership in individual companies.
Dedicated Investors are deeply focused on individual security selection, manage more concentrated, high conviction portfolios, and on average have lower rates of portfolio turnover. We resonate with each aspect of the Dedicated Investor, and with being long-term strategic business investors.
