Research Process

At CapWealth, we have a simple objective: to fund your lifestyle and build your financial legacy. We strive to compound your wealth at high rates over long periods of time with minimal risk of permanent loss of principal.

While each portfolio is customized to the changing needs of each client, our general strategy is to make meaningful investments in high quality, predictable businesses that can be expected to grow intrinsic value at high rates and are currently available at fair or discounted prices.

Our approach involves thinking of each investment as a business owner. As a result, we are focused on the key drivers that will impact the long-term value of the business. In a world that is increasingly focused on short-term outcomes, our greatest advantage is our ability to focus on the big picture—both at the individual investment level and at the portfolio management level.

As owner-minded investors, we focus on the following attributes for individual securities:

  • Simple, predictable business
  • Consistent profitability (high returns on capital and free cash flow)
  • Long runway for future growth and reinvestment opportunities (compounding)
  • Sizeable competitive or structural advantage
  • Shareholder-friendly management with high insider ownership
  • Strong balance sheet

Sophisticated Simplicity® works by prudently investing capital in high-quality companies at disciplined prices over long periods of time. We are acutely focused on the risk and the reward of each investment and manage all portfolios to maximize the potential return to fund your lifestyle while minimizing the level of risk.

Investing is emotional. We strive not to be. In developing a deep understanding of each of our investments and the role they play in achieving your financial targets, we give you the courage and conviction to stick with your financial plan.

Collectively, our Investment Committee has over 150 years of asset management experience that helps guide and shape our asset allocation decisions.
