[pur-spi-kas-i-tee]

Noun: from the Latin perspicācitās, meaning through sightedness.

About Us

Loh-Gronager Partners is an Investment Partnership based on the principles of the original Buffett Partnerships, established by Warren Buffett in the 1950’s. We are concentrated, long-term, value investors, looking to partner with exceptional businesses. Our portfolio businesses demonstrate strong growth potential, widening ‘economic moats’ and are run by high-integrity management, who think as we do: as business owners.

We believe that we must lead by example and operate our Investment Partnership at the same high standards as we hold our portfolio businesses. To align ourselves with our Investor Partners, the majority of our personal liquid assets will, over time, form the single largest investor base in the fund. We treat our Investor Partners, who have entrusted us with their capital, as we would wish to be treated, as true Partners and to this end, do not charge a traditional management fee. Our personal returns mirror those of our Investor Partners and are entirely driven by our Funds’ performance.

Although we accept expressions of interest, our Investment Partnership is accessible by invitation only. For further information please contact us.

Investment Philosophy

“Your goal as an investor should be simply to purchase, at a rational price, a part interest in an easily understood business whose earnings are virtually certain to be materially higher, five, ten, and twenty years from now. Over time, you will find only a few companies that meet those standards – so when you see one that qualifies, you should buy a meaningful amount.”

Warren Buffett, Chairman’s Letter to Shareholders, Berkshire Hathaway Annual Report, 1996

To beat the market over the long-term you have to be doing something different. This sentiment is at the heart of both Loh-Gronager Partners’ business strategy as well as our investment strategy. In addition to our concentrated, long-term, value investing focus, we divide our Global Portfolio between an Emerging Markets Equity strategy focused on China & Southeast Asia; a Developed Markets Equity strategy focused on Europe & North America and a Global Fixed Income strategy whose allocation fluctuates depending on the availability of exceptional equity investment opportunities.

All investing is value investing, whereby we seek to buy an asset for less than its intrinsic value, otherwise known as a ‘margin of safety’. Our objective is to rationally and objectively evaluate each potential investment opportunity to ascertain whether it sits within our circle of competence, whether it meets our investment criteria and how it fits in the context of our existing portfolio. The search for exceptional investment ideas requires both extreme patience and complete intellectual honesty, both of which we incorporate into all aspects of our investment process.

In managing our Global Fund, we follow a modified version of the ‘Yale Approach’, pioneered by David Swensen of the Yale University endowment. We do not sell our individual best performers to average down, we do however, re-balance between the three portfolio strategies to ensure we are adding to the strategy which we believe will have the best relative performance over time. Our variable Global Fixed Income strategy gives us the flexibility to react decisively in times of market volatility. Often it is during these periods when the patience and discipline involved in our investment process comes to the fore and allows us to take advantage of market uncertainty.

A willingness to be contrarian - to stand out from the crowd - is what defines both our business and investment strategy at Loh-Gronager Partners. We believe it will enable us to succeed over the long-term.

He attended Durham University in the UK, receiving the Queens Campus Scholarship and graduating with a BA (Hons) in Accounting & Finance.

He has always been entrepreneurial and business-minded having established and run several successful ventures. He fully endorses Warren Buffett’s belief that “I am a better investor because I am a businessman, and a better businessman because I am no investor”.

His passion for finance was sparked when researching ways to grow his steadily accumulating savings from his business ventures. He discovered the seminal work of Value Investing, Securities Analysis by Benjamin Graham & David Dodd, followed by the teachings of Phil Fisher, Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger, which were used to develop his own ‘latticework of mental models’ about investing.

Ardal has over 10 years’ financial industry experience with both buy-side and sell-side expertise. His career in finance began with internships in Sales & Trading at Goldman Sachs and Swiss Re Asset Management. He subsequently joined Morgan Stanley as an Interest Rates Trader, followed by Credit Suisse as a Credit Trader, before departing to manage an investment portfolio for himself and a small group of family & friends. Ardal decided to formalise the Partnership by forming Loh-Gronager Partners after several successful years, at the request of his investors and to manage external capital.

Values

Partnership

We have a Partnership mentality in everything we do, working with our: Investor Partners, Investee Partners and Business Partners to ensure a collaborative environment in the pursuit of business excellence.

Focus

We believe that only through dedication and passion, in the relentless pursuit of mastery over our business and investment process, can consistent success be achieved.

Excellence

We aspire to excellence in everything we do, constantly striving for exceptional performance and the achievement of outstanding results for our Partners. While always acting with humility in times of success and resolve in times of adversity.

Reputation

We live by Warren Buffett’s mantra that reputations “take a lifetime to earn and moments to lose” and as such, we strive to keep our promise as a loyal and dependable Partner.

Honesty

We work hard to understand what we know and even more so, what we don’t know and to paraphrase Mark Twain “what we think we know, that just ain’t so”. Intellectual honesty is at the heart of our business philosophy and guides both our investment strategy and the interactions with our Partners.

Integrity

We hold ourselves to the very highest personal and professional standards. We seek to learn from our own past experiences and those of others, to make transparent, long-term, ethical decisions while operating with kindness and respect.

Sustainability Strategy

“I am delighted to be working with Loh-Gronager Partners, who recognise that true innovation and industry-leading change, only comes through long-term, proactive and thoughtful interactions with businesses themselves. I very much look forward to the road ahead and building on-going relationships with our portfolio businesses to help them to reach their sustainability goals.”

Dr. Kristjan Jespersen, Associate Professor of Sustainable Innovation & Entrepreneurship at Copenhagen Business School (CBS).

We believe that businesses can only truly embrace the full power of exceptional performance, through having an engaged and sustainability oriented management team. As committed long-term business owners ourselves, in a wide range of countries and sectors, we look to partner with management to help them formulate, integrate and achieve their sustainability objectives.

Over time, we believe that businesses that lead their respective industries through ambitious sustainability policies will broaden and deepen the ‘economic moat’ around their business, which will in turn lead to increased returns for society at large and for shareholders. To this end Loh-Gronager Partners is proud to work with Dr. Kristjan Jespersen of the Copenhagen Business School, as our Chief Engagement Officer, who will shape our engagement and best practices with our portfolio businesses.
