Investment philosophy

Our aim is to identify potential sources of alpha by employing a growth investing strategy through bottom-up fundamental analysis

Our tenets:

  1. It is possible to beat the market
  2. The identification of such qualitative factors that can generate above-average growth is more important than the quantification of the growth
  3. Our proprietary investment framework focuses on: industry dynamics, strategic position and competitive advantage. Those companies that can excel in these aspects are more likely to deliver above-market returns in any economic environment, because they are both better positioned to exploit future opportunities and more resistant to future threats and turmoil.

Investment process

There is one investment idea evaluated bi-weekly that our members vote on, while monitoring and evaluating our existing portfolio. The related tasks are assigned to three roles within the club:

Analyst: has one week to screen the investment universe and select one stock for analysis whose ticker is shared with the members. The analyst has another week to write the investment report on the selected company.
Devil’s Advocate: once the Analyst shares the ticker, the Devil’s Advocate is required to simultaneously write a report that highlights key risks and weaknesses of the proposed investment idea. Once both reports are published, all members vote on the investment idea.
Portfolio analyst: is monitoring the market and summarising the latest news related to those positions that the club already invested in.

The three roles are rotating among members on a bi-weekly basis, therefore the investment process benefits from the insights of our diverse members.
