WHAT WE BELIEVE
Capital Risk's goal is to support the endeavors of its current and future constituents through the preservation of current capital in real terms while growing wealth over the long run. Achievement of this goal requires an investment framework to allocate current capital in the presence of uncertainty to generate future cash flows. Delivering on our promise establishes us as a trusted advisor.
Capital Risk believes that there are three ways to generate sustainable tax-efficient after-inflation returns in a risk-controlled manner within our constraints.
I. Invest in people and partners with deeply specialized knowledge
Knowledge and experience are hard-earned. No one can be everywhere, and no one can know everything or everyone. The dual realities of time and capital efficiency preclude the prior outcomes. We prefer knowledge and experience because most investors do not have the time or the resources to do the work required. We do our work, and we insist that our partners do so as well. Whether investing in the potential of venture capital, relegated real estate, or enhancing operational efficiency with private capital, these outcomes require people with deeply specialized knowledge to envision the overlooked value. We invest in talented people to strengthen our knowledge, business, and your investment returns.
II. Own businesses that enhance capital productivity
Do more with less. This statement is the story of capital efficiency. Over the last 200 years, humanity has unleashed its potential and seen quantum leaps in global living standards. This outcome is due to the ability of a business to meet increasing demand with fewer resources. The incentives in a competitive market allow the best ideas and the most efficient operators to thrive. We own businesses with sustainable products or services, allocate capital efficiently, and occupy a competitive position that permits further growth. Since change takes time, our capital is patient. We wait to buy overlooked value, and we wait to sell until perfectly priced.
III. Allocate capital when market uncertainty is greatest
Risk is an opportunity. When the value of assets is at their most uncertain, we venture forward. Capital markets are the most efficient means to allocate capital; however, this does not imply they are perfect. At times they are euphoric and despondent at other times. We are neither. We believe in people and their willingness to grow. We know in the long run the trajectory is up, even if our strategic intent may temporarily drift off course. We will forgo the fashion of the moment, sometimes at significant short-term opportunity cost. We will, when the sale begins, buy enduring ideas of compelling value. Investing is, in the final analysis, the ability to make decisions in the face of uncertainty, so we invest by managing risk. While there is no certainty to the future, the consistent application of a coherent investment philosophy will ensure that we have the discipline and the ability to act when an opportunity arrives.
