Investment Considerations

Margin of Safety

We mitigate risk by investing in companies with a sound, long-term outlook that are trading at reasonable prices relative to their estimated intrinsic value.

Excellent Management

We look for strong leadership focused on innovation and long-term growth as opposed to short-term, unsustainable gains.

Attractive Growth Prospects

We seek investments with considerable growth potential.

Organizational Agility

We invest in companies with the ability to adapt within their respective industries.

Competitive Advantage

We seek investments with a formidable and sustainable competitive advantage.

Our Values






Investment Philosophy

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.
