We therefore seek to invest in high-quality businesses, only acquiring shares when prices are below our estimate of the intrinsic value of the business. When we find these opportunities, we will take concentrated positions, with the objective of achieving superior, risk-adjusted, absolute returns while preserving our clients’ capital and growing it over time. Silver Heights never has, and does not, use leverage.
