We see opportunity differently

TSW logo

TSW's disciplined investment process is designed to identify opportunity where mispricing results from indifference, low expectations and sometimes even outright disdain. Our focus is on buying businesses at a discount to their intrinsic value and using a diversified portfolio of differentiated ideas to drive superior returns.

TSW embraces a probabilistic approach to risk. We work to understand the probabilities associated with a range of outcomes in an uncertain world. Return potential is best when uncertainty about outcomes creates a gap between market price and intrinsic value. Certainty is an expensive illusion, and the popular path is littered with disappointments.
