Overview

What Does the Pool Invest In?

  • American and foreign companies that have a sustainable competitive advantage, that operate in stable and growing industries and generate high returns on capital 
  • Believe in buying excellent businesses at reasonable valuations 
  • If companies that meet the strict criteria are not trading for reasonable valuations, then cash will build the portfolio 

How Do We Invest? 

  • We believe the best businesses in the world occasionally go on sale, usually because the market extrapolates shorter term issues into the long term 
  • We focus on industries that tend to create the most value for shareholders over the long term and avoid cyclical industries 
  • We seek to acquire businesses that have management teams with a demonstrated track record of thinking and acting like owners 
  • We are agnostic to form of capital allocation: dividends, share repurchase, disciplined M&A
