Every month we receive from the Compustat database account data to over 45,000 international companies. We only analyze companies above a specified minimum size, so that the number is reduced to 15,000.
On the basis of about 25 defined value criteria we filter through all the companies on their attractiveness. Of the 2375 companies which are classified according our criteria as ethical, sustainable business each month only one to three find the way to our funds. The high selectivity has in the past always very good stock market returns. Our portfolios are concentrated and have a low turnover rate.
