Xaverian Capital is a student-operated investment fund at St. Francis Xavier University (St.FX) in Antigonish, Nova Scotia.
The fund enriches the student experience by providing the opportunity to engage in the practical aspects of investment analysis, valuation, and portfolio management.
Xaverian Capital upholds a value investing philosophy and has two primary objectives.
The first investment objective is capital growth. Investments are made based on the long-term fundamental prospects of a company, and the expected holding period is five or more years. Short-term trading and market timing considerations are not included in the decision framework.
The second primary investment objective is capital preservation. Xaverian Capital does not seek to maximize returns by speculating on assets. Instead, it strives to grow its capital base in a manner that minimizes the probability of a permanent loss of capital.
