DISCOVERING PATHWAYS TO VALUE

Continuous Capital, LLC specializes in value-equity strategies for international and emerging markets. The firm pursues alpha through security selection rather than country or sector allocation. Accordingly, the firm seeks to diversify the Fund across countries, sectors, industries and companies. Continuous Capital’s well-defined and repeatable investment process is designed to produce a consistent return profile and focuses time and attention on investment opportunities at the intersection of Value + Quality + Dividends. Continuous Capital was launched as an affiliate of Resolute Investment Managers in April 2018.

Firm inception: 2018

Portfolio manager:

  • Morley Campbell, CFA, president and chief investment officer; industry since 2003

INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY

Continuous Capital’s investment philosophy is grounded in academic research and based upon four key beliefs:

  • Value + Quality Outperforms: Academic research indicates that high quality companies have historically outperformed if purchased at the right price.
  • Dividends Dampen Volatility: Dividends and share repurchases help dampen volatility and provide downside protection.
  • Security Analysis Adds Alpha: Data-driven security analysis helps identify companies in which desirable characteristics and factors are likely to persist.
  • Diversification Reduces Risk: Diversification across multiple dimensions – countries, sectors, industries, companies – helps minimize uncompensated risks to potentially achieve more consistent results for investors.

These principles work together toward the desired goal of creating a top-performing portfolio of high-quality companies with consistent value and income characteristics.
