OUR RESEARCH PROCESS

There is a broad belief that global investing requires an armada of analysts. In reality we find our DRIVE process is the most effective.

  • Define - The type of company we are looking for is the result of decades of investment experience
  • Refine – Using time and experience tested screening narrows the universe of more than 30,000 companies
  • Investigate - Screened companies to determine if they merit further analysis.
  • Vet - Often based on an on site visit but always based on prior contact with company, competitors and industry experience
  • Establish positions – Based on results emerging from the process.

All investing involves risk. Investments in securities of foreign companies involve additional risks, including less liquidity, currency-rate fluctuations, political and economic instability and differences in financial reporting standards and securities market regulation. Investing in small and micro-cap funds will be more volatile and loss of principal could be greater than investing in large cap or more diversified funds. 

An investor should consider investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing.
