Our Investment Philosophy
We believe that the stock price does not always reflect its intrinsic value: it is influenced by a number of factors, including several cognitive biases on the part of investors.
It is possible to make investment decisions based on these recurring behaviors.
Our Investment Methodology
Our investment methodology for stock selection and portfolio construction is entirely top-down. As a first step, we will analyze the market as a whole, then the behavior of the activity sectors and finally we will settle our choice on the most attractive securities. We use a set of well-defined rules for the purchase and sale of securities, which enables us to eliminate all cognitive and emotional biases from the management of your portfolio.
One of the great advantage of our methodology is that it enables the Fund to be heavily underweighted and likely negatively exposed to equities when the stock market drop or crash, which can not only prevent significant losses but also provide an opportunity for positive returns in a challenging market environment.
