Our fund invests in public companies. We are value investors. Successful investing is more an expression of a way of life than a mere investment style. Successful investing requires character traits that are very much in line with the guidelines of Stoicism: Humility, independent thinking, emotional self-control, serenity and the lifelong pursuit of self-awareness and personal growth. Zeno of Citium was a Greek philosopher. He was the founder of the Stoic school of philosophy and lectured in the eponymous portico in Athens. His philosophy influences Western culture until the present day.
