Cardea International Management S.A. (Cardea) is a Luxembourg based investment management company founded in 2011. We provide our global clients with access to a unique combination of investments in both private companies as well as publicly listed stocks. All our investments are evaluated with a value investing mindset at heart.
Value investing has been used by many of the world’s most successful and legendary investors probably the most well-known example is Warren Buffett. He has built up a formidable $85 Billion in net worth over the years, all by practising this same methodology.
So what is value investing?
Boiling it down to its simplest form it relates to buying companies with strong existing and expected future cash-flows and buying them at the right price. This means being patient and playing the long-game. It means searching for businesses that are able to invest the money it makes with continued high returns and ideally where the business has proven that there is a lot of sustainability in those high returns.
It also means that we avoid the constant focus from pundits on trying to predict the next immediate turn of the economy or the market, but rather focus our energy on finding the next opportunity that fits our investment philosophy and making sure we are prepared when the price is right.
