“By being selective, you increase your chances of picking superior performers. You can also watch those stocks more carefully, which is important in controlling risk.” - William O’Neil

Purpose & Approach

Manitou’s primary objective is to preserve and grow our clients’ capital responsibly.

To achieve this objective we focus our investment approach on three key elements: Quality, Knowledge and Discipline.

We select quality companies that are characterized by their financial strength and proven ability to create high returns on invested capital.

We acquire substantial knowledge to understand and estimate the future prospects and value of these businesses.

We exercise a strict discipline to ensure we purchase them at attractive prices that offer a healthy margin of safety.

The results of this investment approach are intelligently diversified portfolios that preserve and grow capital by focusing on our best and most reasoned ideas.
