Investing in Great Global Businessesfor the Long-Term

Focus Growth Strategy

The Investment Strategy of our Focus Growth is straight-forward: construct a stock portfolio of companies that we believe can collectively deliver mid-teens earnings per share growth over the next five years while incurring only moderate risk. It is our aim to invest in companies best positioned to capitalize on long-term growth opportunities. Our Investment Team looks to generate returns by identifying market-leading companies that offer the potential for sustained, above-average growth in revenues and earnings. Companies must meet the following criteria:

  • Extremely strong balance sheets
  • Abundant free cash flow
  • ROE of 20% or more
  • Strong Earnings per Share Growth
  • Stable to Improving Margins
  • Shareholder-Oriented Management Team

Once a company has been added to the Portfolio, we monitor it closely. Our research-intensive Investment Process is designed to enable us to not only identify unique growth opportunities but also maintain our intimate knowledge of the company's financial and competitive position.
