Our strategy

Trends come and go, but our strategy is driven by a resolutely long-term view and by values that endure.

We invest in proven, well-managed businesses that combine long term growth characteristics with an ability to deliver increasing levels of income. Our careful selection process, which ensures expected returns are aligned with our risk appetite, is critical to our approach – as is our carefully calibrated structure. We invest via three routes: quoted equity, funds and private capital. Each has a strategic allocation of capital, investment strategy and target return. The result is a well-balanced portfolio of investments, primed to deliver on our three strategic objectives:

  1. Deliver FTSE All-Share outperformance over ten years and shorter term returns between RPI+3% and RPI+6%
  2. Pay an increasing annual dividend
  3. Manage investment risk consistent with long-term wealth generation

We do our homework and, where possible, aim to work in partnership with our investments to achieve these results. Our portfolio spans multiple asset classes and geographies, but all of our investment decisions are aligned behind one clear philosophy: to invest for the long term.

Our approach is supported by the enduring backing of the Cayzer family, which gives us a critical advantage over institutional capital: time. This gives us the freedom to think in decades, not quarters – and sell only when the time is right for our shareholders.
