As value investors we look for attractive undervalued companies with a promising business model whose management, competitive advantages and market position we can assess properly.
Our investment philosophy is as focused as our investment universe: we concentrate on the German equity market, which offers us plenty of investment opportunities.
We know this investment universe intimately: we deal with our target companies continuously, we follow them over a long period of time and we cultivate regular contact with the respective management teams.
We look for undervalued companies regardless of indices and benchmarks. For the FPM Funds Stockpicker All Cap we exploit the flexibility of all segments of the German equity market – yet with the benefit of the greatest possible independence thanks to our high degree of entrepreneurial freedom.
