What Does the Pool Invest In?

How Do We Invest?

We believe the best businesses acquired at prices that are reasonable in relation to what we expect to receive in return make the best investments.

We believe the best investments are companies with durable businesses that are difficult to live without, difficult to replicate, and difficult to compete with.

We believe companies that are making substantial positive changes in their industries and the communities they operate in are the best positioned for future success.
