A patient timeline has driven our success. We believe that superior returns often require investment timelines that are longer than most investors can or will commit. We value independent judgment and support it with a collegial atmosphere among our small group of professionals. In all of our efforts, we take care to build long-term relationships based on principle and trust.
We are active investors in private growth companies across sectors, favoring recurring revenue, capital efficiency, and protective moats. Our structure allows us to respond to special situations without mandate constraints or fundraising concern.
We also invest capital through independent managers, relying on the domain knowledge and personal character of these managers to deploy capital where we cannot effectively do so ourselves. Alternative assets are concentrated in emerging and frontier markets, though we invest in targeted strategies globally.
Our profits support The Schooner Foundation, which is actively involved in human rights and other causes around the world.
