Has living in a 24/7 world where you are bombarded with information overload forced you to make too many decisions too quickly? Does it seem to you that less time for proper reflection usually leads to decisions that are irrational?
The same is true of investing. Markets rise and fall every day and investing fads come and go. Trying to consistently time the market or pick the next quarter’s top performers is an exercise in futility. As former Major League baseball player and manager Yogi Berra was fond of saying, “It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future.” We believe the best method is to take a rational, long-term approach.
Welcome to a different kind of investment firm. At Stacey Muirhead we operate within the hallmarks of excellent, long-term investing: relationships, reputation and results.
You want effective risk management. You want transparency. You want straight talk from your money manager. To that end, we work with a limited number of investors so we can concentrate on the investment process. We want to know you as a person, not as a file number. If we must choose, we would rather be the best than the biggest. Because of this, our investors are comfortable staying with us for a long time.
Similarly, we invest significant time and effort in really learning about the companies we are interested in before we invest our money. We believe that low turnover is the hallmark of a disciplined investment strategy; we tend to stay with the companies we invest in for a long time. After all, if you've done the homework and believe in the company there's no reason to make wholesale changes if there is a short-term challenge. The journey to financial health and wealth is a marathon, not a sprint.
Our global mindset and unique multi-strategy approach afford us the flexibility to participate in any viable investment opportunities that we can identify while always remaining patient and focused on the long term.
Like you, we believe there is nothing more comforting than having a clear conscience. We proudly publish our guiding tenets focusing on things like safety, integrity, humility. We know that if we serve our investors well, our own success will follow.
We see investing from your perspective, because all of our money is invested right along with you. And we operate on a pay-for-performance basis, fairly unique in the investment world. If you do well, we do well. We don’t spend lots of money on fancy lunches or hard to get tickets to win your business. We are investment focused, not marketing driven.
At Stacey Muirhead Capital Management we offer Canadian investors with a minimum initial investment of $150,000 access to two unique funds: Stacey Muirhead Limited Partnership for your taxable capital and Stacey Muirhead RSP Fund for your RRSP or RRIF retirement capital. We also currently accept special separate account mandates in amounts of $25 million or greater on a selected basis.
We are proud of our long term track record. Since we started in 1994, we have posted solid investment returns by steadfastly focusing on both preserving and growing the capital entrusted to our care. We want our investors to both eat well and sleep well. We know that consistent long-term results are important to you, especially in this short term world. Ask us. We’d love to show you.
We are confident that we can continue to deliver excellent long-term investment results for our investors. Contact us and we’ll talk more about what you need to feel confident about long-term investing in a short term world.
“The basic ideas of investing are to look at stocks as businesses, use market fluctuations to your advantage and seek a margin of safety. That is what Ben Graham taught us. A hundred years from now they will still be the cornerstones of investing.”
