Investment Philosophy

Our investment approach is to identify quality businesses with the best potential for consistent growth. We look for companies with an enduring competitive advantage that are growing at a reasonable price in an industry that we understand.

We are not short-term, but, instead, are long-term investors.  Our buying and selling decisions are made based on an ongoing review of our investment and prospective investments. Returns are enhanced through low turnover resulting in high tax efficiency for taxable accounts.
