BIG PICTURE: Asia focused with high confidence in China and India. SECTOR: Identify industries with favorable operating environments and attractive long-term growth prospects.

MEET, GREET, REPEAT: We are on-the-ground, visiting management, operations as well as competitors in the market. We have often met successive management teams. CONVICTION: Derive a Conviction Ratio by factoring in 1) Management ability; 2) Governance structure; 3) Competitive position; 4) Importance of business to its community; 5) Capital structure; 6) Optionality. VALUATION: We examine historical performance and apply judgment to a long term DCF and build a valuation range (not a single number). PORTFOLIO: Position sized by combining discount to valuation and conviction ratio. Exposure limits apply. Typically 25-30 companies from an active universe of 75. LONG TERM NOT STATIC: Dynamic and regular review. Continuous search for new opportunities.
