Financial Analyst at Belgian Asset Manager: Our investment process has a preference for quality businesses and taking a long term “owner” perspective. We are firm believers that buying the right business has a much larger outcome on investment returns than buying a business just because of its "cheapness". In my responsibilities as an analyst I look for businesses that generate a lot of cash thanks to having one or several competitive advantages. In addition, these companies should have a healthy range of opportunities available to redeploy some or all of their cash back into the business.

I have written 2 dutch books on value investing: "Aandelen selecteren als waardebelegger" and "Beleggen in bull- en bearmarkten". See bol.com (search for the titles). As a mathematician (Ph.D.) I am most interested in investment strategies with statistically favorable returns. In particular I invest in net-nets (20-30% average annual returns). I find companies with low Enterprise Value/Earnings before Tax and Interest (EV/EBIT) and strong balance sheets (20% average annual returns) also very interesting. Since such stocks are rare I invest globally. Send me a message with your email address to get example articles of my premium research on Seeking Alpha.
