Our Investment Philosophy
Richard, Marc and Gavin initially decided to start Orsaro Capital to jointly manage their own funds. They all share a passion for investing, are focussed on investing based on business fundamentals and take an ultra long term view when making investments. The key investment tenets are:
1. Capital preservation
- Stay rich rather than get rich quick investments.
- Risk is defined as the risk of capital loss (and not volatility).
2. Compound wealth
- Seek long term risk adjusted real returns (i.e. after inflation) of 10% per annum.
- Find great companies for the long term and let the power of compounding do the heavy lifting.
3. High conviction
- When a great, well researched business idea is found, invest with conviction.
- There is no point having unnecessary diversification.
4. Benchmark agnostic
- If we want benchmark returns, we can buy an index fund.
- By focussing on finding great companies, over the long term we aim to outperform comparable benchmarks.
