Actionable Investment Ideas
We think about investment ideas differently. We think laterally about change and identify investible ideas that are easy to understand and easy to act on. We make recommendations – buy or sell, never hold – to generate alpha.
Our ethos is to generate ideas that will help make money for clients, or at least make them think.
