The Guardian investment philosophy is based on a few key, time-tested principles. These principles are the foundation to our approach for security analysis, our ongoing investment process and our view on risk:
A Sustainable Investment Approach - We believe in having a clear and thorough understanding of the companies we invest in. Whether equities, fixed income or real estate, our research process rigorously uncovers the fundamental elements of a company and the securities in which we invest. We believe this process is the best risk control in a portfolio.
A Team-based Research Process - We believe our accomplishments to date have been derived in large part from our strong team of investment professionals. Our experienced portfolio managers work in a team environment, that encourages enough independence to help foster a unique collaborative working perspective on the markets.
Our View of Risk - In addition to proper diversification standards, which is integral in managing risk in any markets, we believe risk is also controlled and defined by the quality of our research, our investments and our comprehensive ongoing understanding of these investments.
