March 31, 2015 marked the end of the Port Street Quality Growth Fund’s first twelve months of stewardship. Thank you for the opportunity to report on the Fund’s strategy, performance, and outlook going forward.
The Fund’s approach to investing focuses on those companies that can be purchased at market prices below their fair value with a record of consistent, above average profit growth, strong balance sheets, sustainable competitive advantages, and capable management. The source of such growth is persistently above average profitability, which, when combined with a sensible policy relating to the payout of such profits and intelligent re-investment, results in the compounding of retained earnings and long-term growth. The Fund’s investment strategy is designed to grow purchasing power in excess of inflation and outperform the general market over time while mitigating losses during periods of economic adversity.
