Non-U.S. Intrinsic Value is a bottom-up, absolute, intrinsic value strategy that adheres to the principle of margin of safety in constructing a benchmark agnostic portfolio of approximately 40 to 60 securities.

  • Markets are ruled more by emotions than company fundamentals in the short-term, and the resulting dislocations can potentially be exploited by removing those market psychological misjudgments and view a security as a small piece of a business that is up for sale with rational, sound judgment.
  • History has shown that security prices approach their true worth, or intrinsic value, over time and long-term substantial gain may be realized in investing in undervalued companies when they are out-of-favor by the markets.
  • Downside protection through a margin of safety approach may be achieved by buying a security at a steep discount to its estimated true worth.
