Investment Process

The TM CRUX European Fund employs a rigorous investment approach, focusing on four key criteria for stock selection:

  1. Companies that are not highly capital intensive but generate good cash flow that is either invested in the business, put to work in corporate actions such as M&A or returned to shareholders as dividends;
  2. Companies with high barriers to entry and strong pricing power, enabling them to produce robust earnings with good growth potential;
  3. Businesses whose management have proven track records as well as meaningful stakes in the companies they run;
  4. Companies that have relatively conservative valuations versus their peer group.
