About Dean Ryle Asset Management

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. We believe great businesses purchased with a sufficient ‘margin of safety’ will provide superior long-term returns.

Contrarian

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, and 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.


Diversification

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.

Value

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