"I focus on selecting companies that give investors the opportunity to generate both growth and dividend income in a way that preserves and enhances their capital for the long term."
Gil's approach to security selection combines a top-down macroeconomic view with bottom-up, fundamental analysis to identify companies with strong balance sheets, excellent management and attractive valuations.
