Our Investment Philosophy

Having worked alongside and developed long-term relationships with clients, both individual and institutional, we recognise that managing wealth requires much more than simply investing money.

Sir John Templeton put it best when he explained the objective of investing: “For all long term investors, there can only be one objective – Maximum total return after taxes. Nothing else matters.”

At Skybound Capital there are 8 guiding principles we live by:


Value investing is the only safe approach. By putting the margin of safety at the heart of the process, we can minimize the risk of overpaying for the hope of growth.

Be Contrarian

Sir John Templeton observed: “It is not possible to produce superior performance, unless you do something different from the majority.”

Be patient

Patience is integral to the value approach in investing.

Don’t forecast

Forecasting has never been a reliable investment tool.

Cycles matter

We can’t predict, but we can prepare. An awareness and understanding of economic, credit and sentiment cycles can help with investment.

History matters

Four dangerous words: “This time, it’s different”. Knowledge of history and context can help avoid repeating the mistakes of the past.


Understanding risks and then being able to manage them are key to successful performance.

Consistency and Sustainability

We firmly believe that being able to provide sustainable, consistent performance is a vital element in a successful portfolio or fund management business.


Skybound Capital is a fund management business, providing investment products for family offices, private clients, advisors and institutions with a proven track record for preserving capital in tough market conditions while achieving strong growth in more favorable climates. We pride ourselves on our intellectual capital, risk management systems and an ability to do things differently to ‘the rest of the pack’.
