The Commodore Advantage

We are guided by the original principles of valuation and investing that have withstood the test of time. Businesses and technologies change, but the principles of investing don't.

1. Bottom-up, fundamental research

We do our own research and maintain independence of thought. We rely on our own judgment and analysis, and are influenced neither by the latest fads in the market, nor by Wall Street noise.

2. Patience

We know that it may take time for market values to catch up with intrinsic values of our investments and we are happy to wait. We are playing the long game and are undeterred by short-term movements.
