CONSCIOUS INVESTING

Some people are leaders, others follow. Some people use their democratic vote, others don’t show. Some people choose the future they want to invest in, others let the ‘smart people’ in big banks decide.

We invite you to join us and invest consciously. Make conscious decisions about investing, rather than investing passively and letting others decide.

THE 3 KEY PRINCIPLES

OF CONSCIOUS INVESTING

RECOGNISE THAT YOUR INVESTMENT DECISION IS A VOTE

‘predict the future – by creating it’

How we collectively invest will be by far the most important creator of our future.

Along with your democratic vote, your investment decision represents one of the most important contributions you make to our society.

Investing passively is a waste of this vote. The time has come to invest in a manner which makes sense. A way that also aligns personal values with financial goals.

The time has come to have an impact with our investments.

WHY THE VALUE APPROACH IS A CORNERSTONE OF CONSCIOUS INVESTING

Value investing is not a passive strategy. The value approach requires the investor to have an in depth knowledge of the business model, policies and practices of the companies in the portfolio. It is only by doing this that we can have confidence in our business valuation as well as our alignment with management policies.

Furthermore, value investing also requires patience. Usually it takes time for the share price to rise to its intrinsic value. This patient long-term investment horizon allows our investments to harvest their maximum rewards from both a profit and social perspective.

We invest in businesses not stocks; we invest in sustainable operations not popular fads.

The value approach is a natural choice for the conscious investor.

INVESTING IS MORE THAN JUST PERFORMANCE

Investing used to be a one-dimensional game – beat the market. Let the ‘invisible hand’ deal with everything else. Unfortunately we can all see the visible results from this old approach:

  • chasing performance always leads to bubbles followed by financial distress
  • chasing performance always leads to bubbles followed by financial distress
  • rewarding people solely on the basis of performance inevitably leads to greed, fraud and scandals in financial institutions – all the things we are all so sick of reading about in the news
  • a planet in distress

The old mantra ‘you can’t beat the market’ has simply become irrelevant.

The reality is that focusing on short-term results, mistreating some of the stakeholders, and disregarding the impact on the planet do not lead to better long-term performance.

Quite the contrary.

HOW WE INVEST CONCIOUSLY

WE CALL IT SUSTAINABLE VALUE INVESTING

Sustainable

We believe that one of the most powerful ways to ensure the well-being of all our families, as well as the planet, is to invest wisely for the long term. It is therefore imperative to us that the companies we invest in are a positive force in the world.

Value

The primary performance focus for our family and client money is to avoid permanent capital loss. This is essential to create long term wealth. Therefore, we will only invest in solid securities where the risk is reduced by attractive valuation. We will never invest in popular trends via over-valued companies.

TOGETHER WE MOVE THE NEEDLE

We would like to invite you to join us at Mpartners and help create the future, rather than watch it happen.

Become a sustainable value investor today and build your own legacy.
