Adaptive & unconstrained

Globally adaptive mindset; quality of opportunity is what we seek.
We are free of institutional constraints, are not bound to any geographic, sector-specific or cash limitations, though the flexibility we have does not mean we compromise on the investment criteria; each holding must meet, and continue to meet our risk-reward benchmarks.
