Welcome to Cardea International

About us

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.

 

DID YOU KNOW.....

THAT 50% OF STOCKS IN THE S&P 500 HAD NEGATIVE RETURNS OVER THE LAST 20-YEARS?

WHAT WE DO

Our Services

FUND INVESTMENT

The majority of our investments are made via Cardea International Fund (the Fund) in Luxembourg. The Fund allows investors to get access to a mix of both private companies as well as liquid investments in one place.

FUND INVESTMENTS

Typically, investors do not have the chance of investing in private companies due to the large investment needs, and the complexity around these types of invesments. We provide this opportunity via the Fund. At the same time, the investor will also get access to companies that the Fund deems to fulfil the above criteria with regards to the value investment approach that the Fund uses when selecting investments. The combination provides a unique blend of opportunity for long term growth while protecting against fluctuations in markets and the economy.

DIRECT INVESTMENTS

For investors that have a desire to look at investing only in private companies together with us, we also provide the opportunity to participate in individual investments that we come across.

DIRECT INVESTMENTS

This is currently a smaller portion of what we do, but our deal flow is constantly increasing so let us know if this is something that you are looking for and connect with us for a discussion to find out more.

Long-Term Perspective

Since our investment approach is long-term in nature and that we see the real effect of compounding our investments over the long-term we are also looking for long-term investor relationships. We want to point this out since there are no guarantees that we will produce positive returns every single year, but what we do feel very comfortable about is that we will be generating significant outperformance versus traditional stock market investments over the long term.
