Investment opportunities change too much along the time. The philosophy in which we analyze them do not.
We like investing in companies with a high grwoth potential. The world develops faster and the disruptive innovations threat the traditional productive models. We invest in winning companies and we avoid loser companies no matter how cheap they seem to be.
Quality is not an investment style by itself since it can be applied to Value, Growth, Blended or any other investment style. Quality is a methodology analysis and decision making which seeks to maximize the investments´security avoiding surprises and judgement errors. We have developed a structured methodology which enables to valuate the investments through a succession of demonstrated growth matrices and risk factors which minimize the possibility of suffer irreversible losses of capital in our investments.
The hedges are instruments and control techniques and reduction of financial risk which we use in portfolios and funds to limit the fall with independence of the financial active in which we invest. Thus, we can achieve less risk in a portfolio which invests in equity hedged than a traditional portfolio unhedged of bonds.
