Our Investment Approach

SiMPL is driven by the value investment philosophy. We select stocks to be included in the portfolio using a bottom-up approach generally ignoring the various expectations of market outlook except to the extent they are reflected in prices.


We are interested in only two things:


  • Carefully considering the quality of what we buy, and
  • Conservatively evaluating the value of what we buy

Our approach lays considerable emphasis on in-depth company research to evaluate the quality of the businesses the Company is engaged in. This includes considering factors like scalability of business, underlying sound business economics, and quality of its management in terms of strategy, execution and corporate governance. We try to evaluate this by discussions with the Company wherever possible, information from secondary sources and careful reading of published data.


When a Company passes this test we compare the valuation the market is placing on the Company's businesses and assets with our own estimate of their value and generally look for a discount to appraised value. In general we try to buy stocks that reflect a deep discount to our appraisal of value.
