Public Equity

Philos Partners employs a low-risk approach to equities investing, guided by consistent, objective, and rational decision-making. Our portfolio is subjected to a stringent set of investing criteria with the goal of providing good risk-adjusted returns to our clients over time.

The following are our guiding principles:

  • Invest in cash-generating, well-established companies that are market leaders in key products and services.
  • Require that investments be purchased at a price that is less than our assessment of intrinsic value* at the time of purchase (e.g., a margin of safety** in the stock price).
  • Invest in fewer companies to reduce the risk of unanticipated company-specific problems, and only in companies that meet stringent business and value standards.
  • Think like a business owner or operator by holding a stake in a company for an extended period of time to compound wealth and reduce transaction costs.

* PP's estimate of the present value of the cash that a business can generate and distribute to shareholders over its remaining life.
* *A margin of safety exists when we believe there is a significant discount to intrinsic value at the time of purchase- we aim to purchase at 75% of our estimate to intrinsic value or less.
