Large Cap Strategy

We are long-term, intrinsic value investors who treat each share of stock as a true ownership interest. We look to buy what we believe are good businesses we can understand at a discount to our estimate of intrinsic value.

Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Composite results reflect the reinvestment of dividends, capital gains and other earnings when appropriate. Net returns are calculated by reducing the gross returns by the highest stated fee in the composite fee schedule. Only transaction costs are deducted from gross of fees returns. Prior to 30 September 2022, actual fees were used in calculating net returns. All net returns were changed retroactively to reflect the highest fee in the composite fee schedule.
