3. Evidence to support the Efficient-Market Hypothesis is not scientific, thus, it is flawed: This efficient market hypothesis when related generally to all capital investments (i.e. Purchase of financial and real assets for capital gains), assumes that selling prices already accounts for all informations about the issuing (selling) entity, thus, underpricing or overpricing assumptions should be eliminated.
We firmly believe that most times, the purchase price for real and financial assets are either underpriced or overpriced, where we utilize intelligent analysis to arrive at a scientifically derived conclusion of all asset purchase price true conditions, before capital commitments are ever executed.
In this context, our strategy is to only consider underpriced assets for long-term positions and in our hedge funds vehicle, short overpriced assets that have been earmarked as being positioned for value, after undergoing our various scientifically backed tests.
4. To succeed, we must always be Contrarians: This is a strict principle we always abide by, especially when we implement and execute activities related to financial assets, as we never follow the herd, but simply follow our intelligently interpreted scientifically based data, and the principles and characteristics that governs all our investment portfolios.
For financial securities, we find ourselves mostly in the opposite direction of everyone else-the herd, where house-hold brand names that have a verifiable long-term history of sustainability, are mostly our targets for long-term investments, as our portfolio beta greatly decreases in such value conditions.
5. Investment success requires Diligence and Patience: We firmly believe that all activities including investing, requires a very strict adherence to diligence and patience, from the commencement, planning, implementation, execution and control stages/steps of the activity.
This is why even though a particular asset is a perfect investment medium, we won't complete the asset acquisition or purchase, if it is overpriced or even at par with its intrinsic value. We invest when the assets are underpriced
6. Gathering and Intelligent interpretation of scientifically backed data is amongst the most important factor for success: This is our principle which is always utilized whenever the purchase of an asset is considered. It is similar to using an operational GPS or a Map with compass to find an unknown location, instead of simply commuting to find the location without valid navigational assistance.
This principle firmly places us on the correct path to our expectations, without mis-direction that could result from emotions.
