About Dean Ryle

Opportunistic, value-oriented investment manager

Dean Ryle Asset Management is an opportunistic, value-oriented investment manager that invests principally in US-Listed equity securities over medium to long-term. We invest using a disciplined research process, which includes seeking a thorough understanding and performing a detailed analysis of an investment opportunity’s fundamental and intrinsic value.

 

As a Registered Investment Adviser, we serve institutional investors, financial advisers, families, and individual investors regarded as Qualified Clients and Accredited Investors, who are located in the United States of America.

Within our active equity investment strategy, we target a return greater than 2% p.a. net of our fees above the S&P 500 index over rolling 3-year periods. Our passive investment option provides our clients with the ability to invest in US-listed securities using exchange-traded funds (ETFs), in an individually tailored separately managed portfolio.

Headquartered in New York City, NY, Dean Ryle Asset Management was founded in 2017. 

We are different from other investment managers

We believe:

  • in performance-linked fees, rather than fees based solely on assets under management. We are paid for outperformance.

  • alignment of interest is a critical aspect of our business model and culture.

  • risk is not just market price volatility.

  • it is more profitable to use our own research, rather than third-party research.

  • "value" and "growth" characteristics of individual companies can often co-exist.

  • we are incentivized to perform for our clients.

  • we best serve our clients as Fee-Only Advisers, to reduce conflicts of interest.

Our investment philosophy

Market sentiment. We believe that market sentiment can cause individual share prices to become dislocated from share value in the short to medium term, and this provides a great opportunity for active Advisers to achieve better than market returns over the medium to long-term.

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 and believe that this will enable them to prevent permanent loss of capital. Risk comes from not properly understanding your investments.


Superior long-term compound growth. We aim to produce superior long-term compound growth over time by seeking out and investing in what we believe to be some of the best businesses in the world. Great businesses purchased with a sufficient ‘margin of safety’ will provide superior long-term returns for clients.


Diversification. We aim to be concentrated enough in the best ideas so as not to dilute overall returns but hold enough positions in order 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 in an effort to maximize long-term returns. If a business performs well, the stock price will eventually follow.


Contrarian. We 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 to the crowd.
