The Windmark Process

Time-Tested Approach

A clear process and consistent philosophy, executed with discipline over time, is the key to client success.

Manager
Selection

We understand what it takes for an investment manager to succeed over the long term and are highly selective in our approach

  • Aligned interests and a fiduciary mindset that puts the best interests of their clients above their own
  • A sustainable investment edge that separates them from the crowd
  • A disciplined and repeatable investment process
  • Belief that long-term capital appreciation comes from owning quality companies that will compound earnings and cashflow over time
  • A partner in Windmark’s investment process – to be a leading indicator of opportunity and risk
  • A willingness to invest with conviction by concentrating assets into best ideas
  • Organizational stability from a focus on building a long term, sustainable “franchise”

  • Risk is viewed through multiple lenses, guided by common sense and measured with insightful risk and exposure analytics
  • Patient, with a long-term perspective
  • Skeptical and rigorous investment analysis to operate effectively through market cycles
  • Opportunistic, fundamental and valuation based
