We provide superior performance based on Warren Buffett value investing, simplicity, transparency and passion.

You are already successful –  and unique, special and important to us. We provide you with the highest level of boutique attention, service and advice. 

Superior Performance

In the latest year our portfolios are up 17.9%, compared to 13.1% for the market.

Over the past 12 years our portfolios are up 175%, compared to 127% for the market. 

The performance is even better for clients who are in a position to take advantage of our private equity situations.

Value Investors (= Safety)

We are very conservative, value focused and risk adverse. We never overpay for stocks.

“It’s not risky to buy securities at a fraction of what they’re worth.”  Warren Buffett

All investment begins and ends with value. Markets fluctuate but value is what you are left with when the dust settles. A great business bought at too high a price (or worse!), is never going to be a great investment.

High net worth investors engage us to do this analysis for them.

“I spend 60 hours a week thinking about investments, and most people have got jobs and other things to do. I don’t think you can be a really good investor over a broad range without doing a massive amount of reading. I just read. I read all day. I look at hundreds of annual reports. I think thousands of companies every year. I have to be aware of many companies.”  Warren Buffett

We live and breathe business investing (not to be confused with the stock market). We have spent decades researching and thinking about investments.

Successful investment requires intensity, patience, and a readiness to act instantly opportunity presents itself. We bring all these strengths to work for you.

Unique Service

We offer a unique service based on superior performance, Australian stock specialists, direct stock portfolios, boutique service, independent, no brokerage, commissions, or conflict of interest, value investing, and absolute security.

Investing money carries a great deal of responsibility, not only for yourself, but for your family. Your children’s lives, to a large extent, are dependent on you and your decisions. Bad decisions can affect a lot of people.
