A philosophy inspired by Value Investing

First practiced by professor John Maynard Keynes at the turn of the 19th century, this investment philosophy consists in selecting companies by way of deep investigation and holding them for the long term in a concentrated portfolio. Professor Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett’s mentor during his years at Columbia Business School, later codified the philosophy. Since the early 1930’s, the principles at the basis of Value Investing have been the following: a sustainable competitive advantage, high returns, high earnings growth and the largest possible margin of safety.

Today, we at Index & Cie provide investment services utilizing the same principles. Our research focuses on the fundamental drivers of any asset that attracts our attention and we offer advice on and access to equities, bonds, commodities and FX through more than 2 million products in 30 geographical markets. Our goal is to first protect our clients’ capital while exposing it to a much higher upside than to the downside. Our investment horizon is measured in years, allowing us to uncover and participate in long-term investment trends that are not large enough for markets to be yet considered.
