Anchor Capital

At Anchor Capital we believe the best way to meet our clients’ goals is through traditional value investing that is based on meticulous research and picking individual stocks. Rather than try to match the performance of a benchmark, we build our portfolios from stocks whose prices we believe do not reflect our analysis of their intrinsic value. The companies we invest in can be in any industry or market sector, as long as the stock is selling at a price that is attractive to us and has what we believe to be a well-defined path to reach fair value. Anchor portfolios are diversified, but we view our rigorous security selection and monitoring discipline as our primary risk management tool.
