The Challenge for Many Investors

Asset management is an industry that has too many active managers managing too much money. Fixed fees have long incentivized managers to grow assets under management rather than pursue outperformance. This has led to years of poor performance resulting in the erosion of client trust in active management and their migration to passive investments. 

We intend to align manager and client incentives around outperformance. We do this by charging a management fee that is similar to passive ETFs when performance is at or below a stated benchmark, and we only charge more when we generate outperformance. 

Core Investment Options

  • US Capital Appreciation Strategy. This targets a total return greater than, or equal to 2% p.a., net of our fees, above the S&P 500 index (SPY) over rolling 3-year periods.

  • US Dividend Income Strategy. This targets a total return greater than, or equal to 2% p.a., net of our fees, above the S&P 500 index (SPY) over rolling 3-year periods, in addition to a dividend yield of 2% p.a., or more.

Dean Ryle's low-cost, liquid strategies aim to deliver consistent outperformance based on each client's needs. Custody remains with the client providing 100% transparency.

Our Investment Philosophy

Superior Long-term Compound Growth

We focus on achieving superior long-term compound growth over time by seeking out and investing in what we see are the best businesses in the world. Great businesses purchased with a sufficient ‘margin of safety’ we believe will provide superior long-term returns.


We are often contrarian and will strive to be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful. To have better performance than the crowd we want to do things differently from the crowd.

Capital Preservation

We place a great deal of importance on assessing downside risk. We attempt to know as much about the portfolio companies as we can, this will mitigate the permanent loss of capital. Risk arises from not properly understanding your investments.


We aim to concentrate enough of our best ideas so as not to dilute overall returns but hold enough positions to provide an appropriate level of diversification. Concentrating capital in high-quality businesses builds wealth over time.


Our strategy is to buy wonderful businesses for the long-term to maximize long-term returns. If a business performs well, the stock price will eventually follow.
