"I look for investment opportunities in less efficient areas of the market and follow a disciplined approach that I believe has the potential to generate greater risk-adjusted returns for investors."

Terry's philosophy

Terry applies a rigorous and repeatable process that is driven by fundamentals. The objective is to identify investment opportunities in less efficient spaces, most often in the small- and mid-capitalization markets in North America. By looking for underfollowed and undervalued companies with the greatest growth potential, he seeks to generate superior risk- adjusted returns. He takes a more conservative approach, by focusing on sustainable growth, capital efficiency and balance sheet strength, while avoiding concept securities in order to mitigate downside risks in an asset class that is often perceived as relatively more risky. In essence, Terry searches for quality mini "blue-chips" before they graduate to become larger-capitalization stocks and come to the attention of a wider audience. His goal is to assemble active and concentrated portfolios that could outperform in up markets without undue risk in down markets. For investors who want income, he combines higher-yielding equities and fixed-income securities, striving to provide fixed-income-like distributions without the associated interest-rate sensitivity.
