Our methodology Quality Value, was designed by William Higgons from 1992 onwards.
Today, our goal remains the same:
Building a portfolio of profitable investment with limited risks. We seek profitable, growing businesses (Quality), with a low market capitalization (Value).

- an active management process to maintain an undervalued portfolio.
