We ascribe to the principle of capital preservation first, and then yield enhancement. This is evident in our emphasis on undervalued stocks and explicit use of capital protection strategies. Our analyses are geared to assess the main drivers of and valuations of appropriate investments. Thorough analysis underpins superior returns.
