What we do
We leverage the free cash flow-based FCF Quality Model (FCFQM) to spotlight “quality” companies with the greatest chance of delivering market-beating returns to investors.
These companies tend to have very high environmental, social and governance (ESG) scores.
The outputs from the FCFQM analysis are used to develop and manage a broad range of investment solutions.
A unique suite of products

The depth and rigor of our intellectual property results in a product suite that cannot be replicated, and which can be tailored to the exacting requirements of any investor.

Investors can access our portfolios as funds, separately managed accounts (SMAs), or through licensing or model delivery.

Built on the foundation of free cash flow analysis

Most company valuation models used by investors rely on company earnings as a key input, but earnings are not a reliable indicator of company performance.

The considerable latitude afforded to company management on how and when they recognise revenues and expenses can materially affect the outputs from these models.

Free cash flow is a far more reliable indicator of company performance. It is far less open to manipulation and has been shown over time to be a much stronger predicter of future company success.
